NYC Local Law 26 RS6-1
In 2004, the NYC Department of Buildings published Local Law 26 which enforces a range of improvements for NYC multistory buildings, including photoluminescent requirements that are detailed in Reference Standard RS6-1.
Choose from 2 MEA-listed material options:
PERMALIGHT® Aluminum: MEA 302-05-M BR: 36-9-6 UV
PERMALIGHT® Flexible Vinyl: MEA 303-05-M BR: 32-8-5 UV
Photoluminescent markings had to pass a minimum of five tests (brightness, washability, non-toxicity, non-radioactivity, surface flammability) to obtain an MEA (Materials & Equipment Acceptance) number. PERMALIGHT® products successfully passed these 5 plus two optional tests (rate of burning & UV resistance), confirming the superior performance of PERMALIGHT® materials. Quickly and easily mark your exit paths with these compliant PERMALIGHT® markers. The excellent adhesive properties guarantee a long lasting durability.You'll find PERMALIGHT® MEA-listed Exit Path Markings in hundreds of NYC high-rise office buildings.
