Local Law 26 RS 6-1 Photoluminescent Signs And Pathway Markings
Local Law 26 Photoluminescent Signs And Markings are necessary to show persons evacuating a building the way and to escape a building in a fire or blackout. Luminous pathway (photoluminescent) exit path markings aid in evacuation from buildings in the event of failure of both the power and back-up power to the lighting and illuminated exit signs. Photoluminescent material is charged by exposure to light and will emit luminance after the activating light source is unavailable.
All Photoluminescent Signs and Markings offered by Hyline Safety Company meet with Local Law 26 Reference Standard 6-1.
The New York City Building Code requires that Photoluminescent signs and markings are NYC DOB MEA (Materials Equipment Acceptance) Approved. This means that all Local Law 26 RS 6-1 signs installed must have a NYC MEA Approval # that are registered with the New York City Department of Buildings be accepted by the Department of Buildings registration numbers along with their corresponding BR (Brightness Rating) numbers. All photoluminescent products sold by Hyline Safety Company have passed the required tests of brightness rating, washability, toxicity, radioactivity, flame spread, i.e. flame resistance.
