All 1571 products have been manufactured utilizing newly improved photoluminescent (glow-in-the-dark) pigments, which are based on Strontium Oxide Aluminate Chemistry. They are drastically different from conventional phosphorescent pigments, which are either based on Zinc Sulfide or on radioisotopes for their self-luminous properties. The initial afterglow brightness of Strontium Oxide Aluminate products is up to ten times that of conventional phosphorescent pigments. 1571 Strontium Oxide Aluminate products deliver illumination levels of 508 millicandelas in the initial phase and lasts upwards of 33 hours, the time span for afterglow brightness to diminish to .32 mcd/m2 (100 times the human eye perception limit).
Prior to installation it must be determined that there is a minimum of 5 foot candles of incandescent, fluorescent, metal halide or mercury vapor light on the face(s) of the sign at all times during building occupancy. This small amount of light is necessary for the signâs pigment to charge correctly and maintain code compliance. If 5 foot candles of light is not available, consider installing a self-luminous tritium powered exit sign. According to the EPA, the average foot candles found in an office space is 50 foot candles.
