The E2-071 Step Edge Contrast is designed to
ensure visibility of steps in escape routes to meet
NZBC Clause F6 “Visibility in Escape Routes”. The
Step Edge contrast will be effective in all light conditions
including during failure of the main lighting.
The products are available in lengths of 100mm increments from 600mm
to 1500mm to comply with IBC recommendations to mark the escape
path on the front edge of the step to within 50mm of the wall or the side
of the step. Custom lengths can also be fabricated on site or in the factory
from 2.45 metre or 3.06 metre lengths.
Ecoglo E2-071 Step Edge Contrast is manufactured from extruded
6060T5 aluminium section. Silicon Carbide anti-slip materials and
custom made photoluminescent pigment are embedded in thermoset
polyester carriers to integrally bond the active ingredients into the
aluminium following curing at high temperature. The photoluminescent
area is also recessed into protective channels.
