Ecoglo photoluminescent signage from Just Mats was specified for safe way-finding in the Mascot Tunnel running underneath the Sydney Airport runway.
Roads and Maritime Services is the NSW State Government agency responsible for managing the road network consisting of 18,028km of state roads, 2946km of regional and local roads, and 22 tunnels. Upgrade works were recently undertaken for the Mascot Tunnel wherein Ecoglo photoluminescent signage was specified for safe way-finding in the tunnel during breakdowns or emergency incidents.
Signs and escape route products designed to meet international standards are manufactured using Ecoglo’s patented process that produces highly durable photoluminescent materials for inclusion in sustainable, fail-safe and cost-effective emergency lighting and signage systems.
Ecoglo signage products additionally harness sunlight or recycle existing light in a building to provide sustainable and cost-effective egress solutions. The fail-safe solutions operate immediately and require minimal ongoing maintenance.
The custom glow in the dark signs produced for Roads and Maritime Services for installation in the Mascot Tunnel included running men pictograms, each with unique exit distances to assist people during an emergency. The Ecoglo way-finding signage is positioned with a maximum spacing of 20 metres and minimum height of 2.25 metres above the floor level.
