Johnsonite, a Tarkett company, has updated its Safe-T-First System (STF).

The revamped STF utilizes photoluminescent technology to provide a complete escape path marking system through emergency egress stairwells and hallways that may go dark in the event of a fire or other unexpected power outage.

“In times of an emergency, many escape routing systems are electrical or battery-powered, and cannot be relied upon in a power failure,” said Jeff Robinette, product manager, Tarkett. “By incorporating photoluminescent technology in STF, we have addressed International Building Code requirements, making it the perfect solution for emergency egress applications in a wide range of commercial buildings.”

According to Robinette, Safe-T-First can be used as an entire system or as individual product solutions.
