Why Photoluminescence Lighting Applications Are Needed for Emergency Situations
The installation of photoluminescence lighting is essential for commercial buildings, especially in emergency evacuations when a building could lose power. Photoluminescence lighting could figuratively and literally serve as a light in flights of stairs and hallways to help guide building occupants to their closest exit routes and safety. While the concept of burning inside an enflamed building is absolutely terrifying, the statistics speak volumes: occupants inside a building fire are more likely to die from inhaling smoke than from the fire itself. As smoke covers a building and quickly spreads, photoluminescence lighting can help provide building occupants with a reliable guide to safety through to the closest exit. Read on to learn more!
Photoluminescence Lighting Does Not Require
During emergency evacuations, a fire could cause a commercial building to lose power or totally shut down out of safety measures. Backup lighting could potentially be rendered unusable because of power loss, and in these examples, billowing smoke could start to cloud up hallways causing them to look pitch black. This could disorientate occupants inside a building as they look for a way to find an exit to safety. Since photoluminescence lighting requires no source of power, it serves as an emergency guide to help provide building occupants with well-lit paths to exits.
Glowing Up to 48 Hours
Photoluminescent lighting can glow for up to 48 hours inside blacked-out, smoky conditions. This will help firefighters and other first responders navigate through your commercial building in which a fire has happened after all building occupants have exited safely. Since photoluminescence lighting doesn’t use a power source, you can depend on it to work regardless of whether your commercial building has power or not.
No Need for Maintenance with Photoluminescence Lighting
One of the number one perks of photoluminescence lighting is that it does not require maintenance after it’s been installed. As a commercial building owner, this means that you don’t have to worry about providing maintenance work to your building. Instead, you can focus entirely on making sure that your facility remains up to the state regulations and standards for all of your fire safety systems set up in place.
