This White-on-Red Fire Alarm Call Point Arrow sign guides a building's occupants to the location of a fire alarm call point or pull station. These signs glow in the dark without electricity using photoluminescent white text and symbols on a vertical vinyl signmeasuring approximately16 in.x4 in.(400mmx100mm).
Each of these glow-in-the-dark fire alarm call point arrow signs provides:
- A minimum of 90 minutes' illumination
- A universal pictogram (symbol) of an alarm call point
- The text √É¬¢fire alarm call point√É¬¢
- One long vertical arrow designed for installation above the alarm call point
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-E2072, ASTM International's testing standard for photoluminescent markings.
How does this fire alarm call pull station sign work?
Everlux's white-on-red fire alarm pull station arrow 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. Every photoluminescent sign needs illumination from an external charging light to glow in accordance with their standards or listings.
Each sign enhances visibility the visibility of fire alarm pull stations and complies with ASTM E 2072: Standard Specification for Photoluminescent (Phosphorescent) Safety Markings. This sign will provide a minimum of 5.5 millicandelas per square meter (mcd/m√É‚Äö√Ç¬≤) 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,¬ùeven very bright incandescent (traditional) bulbs or neon signs,¬ùshouldn't be used as external charging lights.
