What are Photoluminescent products?

Innova Solutions and Jessup Glo-Brite®

The world’s most trusted photoluminescents are Jessup Glo-Brite®. And the UK’s sole official Jessup Glo-Brite® partner? Innova Solutions.

Since 1956, Jessup Manufacturing Company of Illinois has been developing state of the art coating and converting technologies. Today it is recognised as the leading manufacturer of slip prevention measures and the Glo-Brite® brand of photoluminescent safety way-guidance systems.

Jessup works closely with its worldwide partners to make Glo-Brite® the glow in the dark material of choice for emergency egress systems. It chooses its partners carefully, and in the UK, that sole official partner is Innova Solutions.

 

What is photoluminescent used for?

The most common commercial uses for photoluminescent material are in the manufacture of safety way guidance and emergency signage; all Innova materials are suitable for digital printing with solvent, eco-solvent or UV inks, screen printing or thermal-transfer.

 

How do they work?

Photoluminescent materials have the ability to absorb light energy, whether natural or artificial, and on the removal of that light source, will continue to glow.

The duration and brightness of the glow is governed by the amount of photoluminescent pigment stored in the face surface. The Classification of the brightness and duration of the glow is done by a simple lettering system- Class A has the least pigment, therefore the shortest life/least brightness, Class B has more pigment, Class C has more than Class B and so on.

Watch the two videos below to see how they perform in ‘Blackout’ and ‘Smoke filled’ conditions:
