Photoluminescent Glow in the Dark Egress Tape from Heskins: Lighting Your Way to Safety


Information was scarcely available online when we initially released our egress tape, but now we have had a chance to provide you with more….

As we settle into the new year after a hectic start, it’s time to address some lingering questions and provide you with more information about a product that has garnered significant interest – our glow in the dark egress tape. In a previous blog post, we introduced this innovative tape and its applications. However, one crucial question remained unanswered: how long does it glow? Let’s delve into the details and illuminate the facts about Heskins egress tape.

Lighting the Way in the Dark

Firstly, it’s important to clarify that while we would love for our egress tape to glow throughout the night, it has limitations, and we have never claimed otherwise. Heskins egress tape is designed for use in low-light or lights-out situations, with its true value shining during emergency scenarios. After a mere few hours of exposure to artificial or natural light, the tape becomes charged and ready to emit a reassuring glow. However, the duration of this glow depends on the strength of the light source. In optimal conditions, our glow in the dark egress tape can provide illumination for a maximum of 2 hours.

Ideal for Emergency Situations

Imagine a scenario where a building experiences a sudden power outage, plunging it into complete darkness. This is where glow in the dark egress tape truly proves its worth. It guides occupants to safety, offering a cost-effective and efficient solution for emergency lighting. The manufacturing process behind our egress tape ensures it is not only highly effective but also cost-efficient, making it a practical choice for various settings.

Versatile and Customisable

Heskins glow in the dark egress tape is available in 10-meter lengths, with widths ranging from 12mm to 1170mm. To preserve the adhesive for as long as possible, the tape comes with a paper backing liner. The adhesive creates a strong bond between the tape and the surface, ensuring it stays securely in place. Importantly, it is designed to be removed without damaging the underlying surface, so you don’t have to worry about paint or finish being pulled off.

For those with specific requirements, we offer the flexibility to create bespoke packages tailored to your needs. Simply give us a call, and we’ll shed light on all the details.

Illuminating Your Way

In conclusion, Heskins glow in the dark egress tape is not a perpetual light source, but rather a highly reliable and cost-effective solution for emergency lighting. It offers peace of mind in situations where darkness could lead to confusion and accidents. Heskins commitment to quality and innovation ensures that our egress tape meets and exceeds your expectations.
