Technology and advantages

Unsere bodennahen Leitsysteme sind gekennzeichnet durch innovative Produkteigenschaften.

Sustained luminance
Our photoluminescent materials absorb light and emit it over a long period. This ensures that escape route markings remain visible even in complete darkness or smoke.

Robust and durable
Our guidance systems are specially designed to resist abrasion, chemicals, and weather influences, guaranteeing long-lasting marking with minimal maintenance requirements.

Application flexibility
Our systems can be easily adapted to specific local conditions.

Easy installation and maintenance
Installation of our guidance systems is straightforward and does not require structural modifications. Additionally, they are low-maintenance, saving further costs.

Applications for photoluminescent guidance systems from PERMALUX

Photoluminescent guidance systems are essential in buildings with high safety requirements such as schools, hospitals, hotels, office buildings, and industrial facilities, providing clear orientation even under adverse conditions like smoke development or power failure.

On passenger ships such as cruise ships or ferries, our low location lighting (LLL) systems support safe orientation and quick evacuation in emergencies.

In aircraft, our photoluminescent floor path marking systems are an integral part of the safety system.

In trains and buses, our photoluminescent guidance systems and markings are a reliable part of the overall safety concept.
