Custom Glow-in-the-Dark Signage

Although standard “off-the-shelf” safety signs are widely available, Technigraphics instead specializes in making custom, made-to-order photoluminescent labels, signs and custom photoluminescent evacuation maps.

Photoluminescent Signage

Since the events of 9/11, the importance of photoluminescent signs, photoluminescent labels, evacuation maps and path markings has never been greater. The labeling and marking of areas of hazard with these photoluminescent signs, or “glow-in-the-dark signs”, is becoming increasingly imperative.

Storms, fires and man-made disasters can cause power outages and create havoc in buildings during egress. Emergency lighting systems relying on back-up generators or batteries are expensive to install and maintain, and are not 100% reliable. Glow-in-the-dark evacuation maps illustrate safety instructions under both normal and blackout conditions.

How does it work?

Photoluminescent products absorb light and their luminance becomes visible, once the ambient light is less than the emitted luminance.

What are the advantages of photoluminescent products from Technigraphics?

  • No electricity is required. Photoluminescent materials absorb and store energy from normal ambient light and are designed to glow in total darkness. They then instantly release this energy in the form of light during an emergency.
  • Reliability: our photoluminescent labels and signs have no internal lights to burn out, making them 100% reliable and virtually maintenance free.
  • Environmentally friendly: They are non-radioactive and non-toxic.
  • Cost-effective: Technigraphics’ photoluminescent signs will last for 25+ years and will recharge indefinitely.
  • Meets or exceeds a wide range of standards and building codes (ASTM, DIN, IMO, UL, NYC RS6-1, APTA, etc.) Contact us if you need information on specific Standards and Codes our products meet or exceed.
