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.
