website | Company information

The IllumiTread product line, including stair nosings, aisle markers, demarcation products, hand rail markers and signage, is designed to provide safe egress after the loss of electrical power in a building. The products use strontium aluminate pigments to achieve a rating that exceeds the New York City Building Code Reference Standards RS 6-1 and RS 6-1A. The products are fire-resistant, weather-resistant, UV stable, non-toxic and non-radioactive. Photoluminescent signs and markings absorb and store energy from normal ambient light, then release this energy in the form of light when the room is darkened.
