Everlux's L0603 self-illuminated, lightweight plastic sign clearly indicates the location of an automated external defibrillator (AED). Used in schools, hospitals, assisted living facilities, and gyms, AEDs can save victims of cardiac arrest and AED sign can help users locate them quickly.
This double-sided sign is coated with a photoluminescent pigment and measures at nearly 6-3/4in. x 6-3/4in. (170 mm x 170 mm). This white photoluminescent sign does not require electricity and is designed to mount as a flag with a base that holds both sides at a right angle to the wall.
Manufactured by Everlux, a world-renowned maker of safety signage, this glow-in-the-dark sign features a photoluminescent body, clear symbols, and high-contrast text. The pigment provides 90 minutes' illumination after sufficient exposure to light in accordance with ASTM-E2073, ASTM International's testing standard for photoluminescent markings.
How does this sign work?
This white-and-green AED sign glows after sufficient exposure to light. Note, however, that the √É¬¢reliable light source√É¬¢ required by life safety codes typically can't be natural lighting. Photoluminescent signs need illumination from an external charging light to glow in accordance with their standards or listings.
This sign will provide a minimum of 5.5 millicandelas per square meter when charged. Each sign can fully charge in 60 minutes when provided with a light source delivering:
- 11 lux (or 1 footcandle) of light
- A cool white source color (4000K)
These required levels of light may be provided by fluorescent and LED lights with a cool white color temperature. These lights are bright and typically reserved for indoor walkways and workspaces. Other types of lighting - even very bright incandescent (traditional) bulbs or neon signs - shouldn't be used as external charging lights.
How can I install this sign?
This double-sided photoluminescent Everlux AED emergency sign is designed for flag-style mounting. This sign is ideal for buildings with only one floor and can supplement stairwell or door signs that direct users to an AED in a multi-story building.
With this standalone sign, installers can either:
- Place heavy-duty, double-sided sign tape (or a similar adhesive) on the edge of the sign
- Use drywall screws or other sign-mounting hardware, mounting along the sign's border as needed
