New York, NY (PRWEB) August 22, 2005
Hyline Safety Company, a leading manufacturer and distributor of photoluminescent signs, will be offering New York City all the newly required Local Law 26-compliant RS 6-1 glow-in-the-dark emergency exit signs and an assortment of all the specific required signs and markings. The signs will provide a non-toxic, non-electric, and non-radioactive source of protection in the event of an emergency or power outage.
ÂPhotoluminescence is the most economical and foolproof method to ensure that people can easily find and use the path to a safe emergency exit,Â said Evan Lipstein, CEO of Hyline Safety Company. ÂUsing glow-in-the-dark emergency exit signs and egress systems will clearly point out escape routes in darkened environments. This is imperative to aid people's abilities to find their way out of a building quickly, efficiently and safely.Â
Once the signs are in place, commercial high-rise building occupants will have a safe illuminated path through dark stairwells in the event of an emergency or power outage. Hyline use the latest photoluminescent technology with high-grade Strontium Aluminate industrial pigments that absorb and store normal ambient light. In the event of a sudden power outage, the stored light energy is immediately visible, enabling the Hyline Safety evacuation guidance systems and glow-in-the-dark emergency exit signs to provide a safe illuminated path through dark stairwells, and hallways.
The major benefits of glow-in-the-dark emergency exit signs are:
- Help the safe, orderly and speedy evacuation of buildings in blackout conditions
- Cannot fail, ever, provided they have been exposed to normal lighting levels prior to darkened conditions
- Function under any conditions, including heavy smoke that would obscure electrically operated emergency lighting systems
- Easy and economical to install and maintain
- Require no electricity, zero maintenance and are not affected by heat, cold, or explosion
Upgrading emergency systems to glow-in-the-dark emergency exit signs is required by New York Local Law 26. The deadline for installation is July 1, 2006. Using Hyline Safety glow-in-the-dark emergency exit signs will reduce confusion and avoid panic in blackout conditions, and with periodic inspections and minimal maintenance (keeping the face of the signs clean and unobstructed), the glow-in-the-dark emergency exit sign systems can last for 25 or more years.
