https://sprinklerage.com/sprinkler-system-think/ glow in the dark signs lighting your way to safety what you need to know There are new exit signs available that are made on plastic with a paint that glows in the dark. This new technology appears to be approved with permission from the local AHJ after reviewing the light source that would be “charging” the sign. There are several items that need to be checked before this will be approved at the site level according to NFPA codes: • The sign shall be continually illuminated and the charging illumination will be a reliable light source, as determined by authorities. • Photoluminescent signs need a specific minimum level and type of light on the face of the sign to ensure that it is charged for emergency operation. • These exit signs do not require an inspection and there is not a back-up battery to test. If you have questions about these signs, please contact Ben McCurdy until a formal statement has been released on these products.
