Description

Heskins Photoluminescent Egress Tape clearly marks fire exits and escape routes, glowing in darkness to help guide personnel out of a building to safety during emergencies such as fire or a power cut. The tape charges during the day from natural or incandescent/artificial light, glowing at night or when the area is dim, such as blackouts, or blocked out by smoke from fire.

Apply photoluminescent tape to areas away from foot traffic to stop degredation, on surfaces such as:

  • Door surrounds and handles
  • Top of skirting boards
  • Down walkways
  • On step and stair edges

Heskins Photoluminescent Egress Tape is available in different styles and grades; see below for details, and further below for product data. For photoluminescent marking tapes and glow in the dark signs, see other Heskins products:

See the Heskins range of accessories for additional help during application, pro-longing the life of anti-slip tapes and line markings. The range consists of primers, edge fixing, mallets, rollers etc.

Millicandelas (Glow In The Dark Performance) Explained


DIN 67510 and ISO standards have led to the classification of photolu­min­escent materials into four main classes: A, B, C & D.

These classes categorise photoluminescent materials into their luminance, which is expressed in millicandelas per square metre (mcd/m²). To help put it into perspective, a candle emits light at a measurement of roughly 1 candela, and there are 1000 millicandela in a candela. Photoluminescent materials are classed based on what it initially emits at and how long it takes to get to 0.32 mcd/m² (the level at which light can no longer be seen by the human eye).
