Glo Brite® Systems, introduces an eco-friendly line of photoluminescent signs for commercial building use that will save billions of dollars in energy costs every year. These environmentally safe exit signs will replace millions of electric exit signs across the US.

Glo Brite® Systems, a Jessup Manufacturing Company brand, introduces a full line of photoluminescent safety products that will revolutionize the industry.

This line of products consists of emergency exit signs, fire safety signs and egress systems. What is so special about these products is that they require no electricity to operate, which creates a nice side effect of billions of dollars in energy savings annually.

The Glo Brite® line of products utilizes photoluminescent technology. For lack of a better term, this means "glow in the dark". This technology has been available for decades, but it has not been until recent improvements that allow this technology to be used in safety signs. Photoluminescent material is basically a plastic coating that contains pigments that absorb ambient light and store it as energy. In darkness or smoky conditions the process is reversed and the pigments release the energy as light. Today's photo luminescent products glow brighter and for longer periods of time making them acceptable for use in emergency signs.

The side effect; with these products you do not need electric power, light bulbs, wiring, replacement parts or electrical maintenance, thus creating an incredible energy savings compared to the use of yesterday's electric powered emergency exit signs.

According to recent statistics from the U.S. Department of Energy, there are over 100 million electric exit signs operating across the country 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The public buildings that use these electric signs pay a combined cost of over $1 billion a year in energy and maintenance costs. These figures are based on just the United States, just imagine what the energy savings would be globally.
