Photoluminescent Lighting

photoluminescentLynn Proctor Windle, a contributing editor to Building Operating Management Magazine, wrote an excellent piece on photoluminescent technology as a means of providing emergency lighting in buildings, specially safety signs and path markers. The article is a little dated (March 2005), but clearly summarizes the technology.

Titled “Photoluminescent Technology: Reliable Emergency Lighting in Buildings,” you can find it here.

The Photoluminescent Safety Association can be found here.

Have you tried this technology and if so, what was your experience?
