Fire Safety Signs for Elevators
In case of fire, most elevators are not to be used in the evacuation process.
2021-09-22
Fire Safety Signs for Elevators

In case of fire, most elevators are not to be used in the evacuation process. In these cases, an instruction not to use elevators shall be posted near elevator call buttons. The safety symbols used in such instructions are specified by NFPA 170 – Standard for Fire Safety and Emergency Symbols.

There are, however, elevators that are integrated in Elevator Evacuation Systems which are used in the evacuation process. The components of these systems, such as elevator lobbies, elevator doors, shafts and machine rooms are protected from fire and can safely be used for egress. NFPA 101 – Life Safety Code mandates the use of specific signs in the lobbies of elevators that are part of the means of egress indicating tat the elevator can be used for evacuation as all as their operational status.

Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Signs
The design principles of AED signs are established by NFPA 170.
2021-09-08
Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Signs

All 50 states have Automated External Defibrillator (AED) programs for places of assembly such as airports, stadiums, churches, health clubs, schools and hotels. These must be maintained according to the manufacturer and the American Heart Association (AHA) which address the need of using AED signs to identify where these devices are located.

In case of a cardiac emergency, AED signs provide essential information that will quickly guide people in the direction of the equipment. The design principles of AED signs are established by NFPA 170 – Standard for Fire Safety and Emergency Symbols.







These signs are available in several options and will help you to keep your facilities in compliance. To learn more about the Everlux AED signs visit our digital catalogue

Door Opening Hardware Signs
The International Building Code (IBC) requires the use of approved luminous Egress Path Markings in high-rise buildings
2021-08-17
Door Opening Hardware Signs

In its CHAPTER 10 – MEANS OF EGRESS, SECTION 1025, LUMINOUS EGRESS PATH MARKINGS, the International Building Code (IBC) requires the use of approved luminous Egress Path Markings in high-rise buildings of Group A, B, E, I, M, and R-1 occupancies in accordance with Sections 1025.1 through 1025.5.

An egress path marking system contains many different components each of them having its specific purpose. The floor and wall perimeter delineation stripes maybe be the most important component to mark the exit path but in emergency situations, door opening hardware signs provide just as essential guidance on where and how to open exit doors.

As per IBC, door hardware shall be marked with a photoluminescent marking with at least 16 square inches. This marking shall be located behind, adjacent to or on the door handle or escutcheon. Panic bars shall be marked with at least 1” wide photoluminescent marking in the complete length of the actuating bar or touchpad.

NFPA 101 Life Safety Code further enforces this requirement in paragraph 7.2.2.5.5.7 Door hardware Marking.





Everlux provides a comprehensive selection of door opening hardware signs and markings as part of its UL 1994 Listed Egress Path Markings range. Learn more in our digital catalogue.

New Products: Photoluminescent Egress Path Markings with Enhanced Fall and Slip Prevention Features

New Products: Photoluminescent Egress Path Markings with Enhanced Fall and Slip Prevention Features

A building safety officer faces two challenges in providing an effective safety solution for the building users who need to circulate in stairwells:

  • It is essential to effectively mark every step to assure their immediate identification during an emergency, in which a blackout or the presence of smoke may occur.
  • Additionally, it is also necessary to protect the users from possible slips, trips and falls which may occur from the daily use of stairwells.
Everlux is now launching its new stair nosing options, as a supplement to its existing solutions, combining photoluminescent markings with enhanced anti-slip properties, developed with the most demanding applications in mind.


These new products are more suitable for places where, given the type of use or the actual construction features, a higher anti-slip grade solution is required. Steeper and narrower stairwells and places with higher slipping risks are some of the examples of such applications.

Everlux also developed new flat aluminium profile solutions with enhanced anti-slip characteristics. These new profiles are intended to be used on uneven floors where it is also required the use of a higher anti-slip grade solution, or where an anti-slip and photoluminescent combined product may offer a decisive contribution to reduce the slipping hazard and to improve the evacuation marking conditions.

Transition and Floor Perimeter Demarcation Lines

The requirements for the use of Luminous Egress Path Markings are established in Section 1025 of the International Building Code Chapter 10 – Means of Egress

This chapter mandates that Approved luminous egress path markings delineating the exit path shall be provided in interior exit stairways, interior ramps and exit passageways in high-rise buildings of Group A, B, E, I, M and R-1 occupancies.

Stair landings and other floor areas within interior exit stairways, interior exit ramps and exit passageways, shall be marked with solid and continuous demarcation lines on the floor, on the walls or a combination of both.


In this example we are using wall perimeter demarcation lines which drops to the floor.
To assure the continuity of the system the floor demarcation stripe stretches in all the extension of the door and meets the wall demarcation stripe.

The floor perimeter demarcation lines must be installed as close as practicable to the wall to a maximum distance of 4” as illustrated in the left.

Photoluminescent Safety Signs for Green Buildings
As we know, green building is the practice of designing, constructing and operating buildings to maximize occupant health and productivity, use fewer resources, reduce waste and negative environmental impacts, and decrease life cycle costs.

And when talking about Green Buildings, the Everlux photoluminescent safety signs are a very suitable solution: these are a zero-energy consumption and eco-friendly solution, with no wiring, no batteries, no replacement parts required.
When submitted to a luminous excitation, a photoluminescent safety sign has the ability to store the light (natural and artificial) received. Later, during a blackout situation, the sign naturally "glows”, showing to the buildings’ users the message for which the sign was manufactured, i.e. to show alarm equipment, fire equipment, safety equipment, escape routes (exits, doors, etc.), the dangers, the obligations or the prohibitions.

Everlux is very excited about its recent membership to a community devoted to the green building mission: The U.S. Green Building Council.
USGBC is a community of real estate leaders, governments, developers, contractors, architects, engineers, educators, innovators and companies working to build healthy, efficient and equitable buildings and communities for all. It is committed to a sustainable, prosperous future through LEED, the leading program for green buildings and communities worldwide.

Everlux photoluminescent Safety signs can provide points for LEED projects in the following areas: Energy and Atmosphere (EA), Materials and Resources (MR), and Innovation and Design (IN).
