Martinson-Nicholls, a leader in custom floor matting and safety solutions, offers two new products to illuminate exits and entrances without electricity.
"Many states and cities now require that emergency exits have some form of illumination in case of complete electrical or battery backup failure," explained Martinson-Nicholls President Dan Ruminski. "We now provide two solutions, a floor mat with recessed, glow-in-the-dark arrows, and an anti-skid, pressure sensitive photoluminescent tape product." Both products absorb light from building lights or daylight, and provide bright, non-electric illumination, for hours in blackout, smoky, or nighttime conditions.
The Glow in the Dark Tape comes in many lengths and widths and is installed by just peeling off the liner and sticking it to the floor, stairs, walls, handrails, doorframes, and baseboards. The tape must be applied to a smooth, hard surface. The Glow Tape may be used indoors and outdoors in all kinds of industrial environments.
The Glow Hog Mat is made for uneven, rough or carpeted surfaces where installing tape is impossible. Just remove it from the box and place mat where needed. Imbedded glow-in-the-dark arrows in the mat point direction of traffic. Mats are available in 2' X 3', 3' X 5' and 4' X 6'.
Martinson-Nicholls believes that their customers will get very inventive with this technology, finding many practical or O.E.M. installations. Any area that needs photoluminescent egress markings or any object that needs to be identified in low-light situations now has a solution.
