This Photoluminescent Egress Marking Tape fits in well with your health and safety requirements. When installed, it actively works to minimise the risk of injury by improving visibility and highlighting potential hazards along a path. Egress tape refers to a photoluminescent marking tape that has both a self-adhesive plastic base film and a layer of photoluminescent powder. During the day, this powder absorbs the light energy from both natural and artificial light. This allows it to glow brightly in the event of a power cut or black out, alerting people to hazard locations and ensuring trips, falls and injuries are avoided. During the day, this tape has a mild green colour which transforms into bright white during darker conditions.

It is a cost-effective solution for your business. The design first came around to combat the impact of smoke on visibility. As it rises, this by-product of fire makes it considerably harder to benefit from the effect of normal lighting. Therefore, egress tape is designed to be placed at ground level, allowing people to crawl along walkways and easily identify exist and access routes. Here, we supply is in a range of different sizes rolls. In addition, we are also able to manufacture die-cut shapes in almost any dimensions to fit your needs upon request.

1) Material Storage

Ensure the material is kept in dry, warm conditions in the original protective packaging.

2) Surface Preparation

A clean, dry surface is essential. Use an IPA cleaner to remove all surface contaminants (paint flakes, etc) – DO NOT use methylated spirits/petrol/lighter fluid etc., as these leave behind a thin, greasy residue. Ensure prepared surface is above 10°C.

3) Porous Surface Sealing

Porous surfaces must be sealed prior to application to prevent water attacking the adhesive.  Toluene based primers are ideal - we recommend our own product for this job. Apply a thin coat to the cleaned surface using a paint brush, then leave to dry.

4) Tape Application

Peel back part of the release liner then press the adhesive firmly onto the prepared surface, and slowly keep peeling back the liner while applying the tape. Try to ensure that the tape is not taut.

5) Finish!

Once applied, press tape down firmly using even pressure (decorating rollers are excellent for this).  We recommend sealing the edges using ‘edge fix’ as this will extend the life of the product. Only use a small amount down the edges, a thin bead.

If correctly applied, the new anti-slip surface can be walked on instantly, you will get maximum benefit from the adhesive system after 48 hours.
