Safety and Self Luminous Exit Signs
Using Self Luminous Exit Signs for Safe Exit
Self luminous exit signs are used in public places to offer emergency management and safety during the times of emergency. The major purpose of exit signs is to offer a safe exit for people trapped in a closed hall like that of cinema halls or auditorium during stampede caused by accidental fire. Accidental fires will cause smoke that will reduce the visibility and people will find it difficult to check the exit doors. In such situations, exit signs can prove to be really helpful to guide people towards the exit door.
