Heskins announce their new high-quality egress glow in the dark marking tape, with the same construction as our popular egress glow in the dark marking tape, but with much longer glow times.
Egress photoluminescent tape is a smooth demarcation tape, used for marking areas in buildings to guide you during power outs or lights out situations. The glow in the dark properties is from photoluminescent powder applied to the base film. When the lights go out, the powder, which is full of photons that store energy from natural or artificial light, release this energy in a bright glow, guiding you down stairways, along walkways and through doorways and exits.
Egress glow in the dark marking tape should only be applied on areas not exposed to foot traffic, due to the nature of the construction, it would degrade quickly from people walking on it. Application on door frames, walls, and edges of walkways is perfect and highlights walking and exit areas very prominently when the lights go out. Even door handles and light switches would benefit from its application.
What makes our high-quality egress photoluminescent tape different from our standard egress is the strength and time of the glow after lights out. High-quality egress glow in the dark tape is available in two versions, premium 8152 and super 8154.
The luminance of glow in the dark material is measured in millicandelas per square meter ( mcd/m2 ). Measurements of products are judged on how long an afterglow takes to reach 0.32 mcd/m2, which is when it is rendered ineffective. Premium is the best performer, at full charge taking approximately 1800 minutes ( 30 hours ) to reach 0.32 mcd/m2. Super takes approximately 450 minutes ( 7 hours ) to reach that mark. ASTM 2072 stipulates that the levels of luminance at 10 minutes should be 30mcd/m² and at 60 minutes should be 4.4mcd/m² and from the above results, we can show that they far exceed these regulatory requirements.
Heskins offer two versions of high-quality glow in the dark egress tape, to ensure you do not spend more than you need to. Depending on the glow times you require, will determine your choice of a cost-effective glow in the dark material.
Both premium 8152 and super 8154 glow in the dark egress marking tape are available in roll sizes from 0.59 inches up to 48 inches in width and up to 164 feet in length.
