Heskins® glow in the dark egress tape is produced in either plain or chevron hazard format. During daylight or lights on scenario, glow in the dark marking tape is a mild green color; in a lights out situation it immediately releases a highly noticeable bright glow. The light that is emitted is stored as energy when the tape is exposed to a light source, this can be natural or artificial lighting.
Our glow in the dark egress hazard marking tapes does not use any radioactive materials or components that breach any state, federal or international standards. Impregnated into the upper surface are the photoluminescent powders, these powders have an indefinite lifespan and can be recharged over and over, for the duration of the lifespan of the tape.
Underneath the top film, we apply a permanent self-adhesive that has a heavy coat weight. The adhesive is exposed by removing the protective backing paper, then, simply stick down onto any surface that is clean, dry and free from any grease. For applying onto porous surfaces (wood, concrete, stone etc.) we recommend the use of our surface primer prior to application.
With this being a smooth tape, it’s primary use is for marking many areas as a hazard marking tape.
Marking doorways, particularly door frames, allows for exit and entry points to be found in low light or lights out situations. Glow in the dark marking tape can be applied in seconds, and is ready to use immediately.
