What is Photoluminescent material?

Photoluminescent materials work by absorbing light from an ambient light source, whether natural or electrical, and then glowing when the light source is removed. This could be due to power failure, smoke ingress or fire.

Our photoluminescent material has been independently tested by the German Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) and has a Type Approval Certificate issued by DNV to state that the material complies with Annex A.1, item no. A.1/3.40 and Annex B, Module B in the directive. SOLAS 74 amended, Regulation II -2/13 and FSS Code 11.

As well as our Low Location Lighting, our photoluminescent material is used to manufacture International Maritime Organisation (IMO), Life Saving, Safe Condition (Directional Escape and Emergency Equipment) and Fire Fighting Equipment signage. Our Photoluminescent Signage will highlight vital information in both light and dark conditions.
