Fifth edition, November If these details are to be fre for any other purpose than implementation then the prior written permission of BSI must be obtained.

BSI also holds the copyright, in the UK, of the publications of the international standardization bodies.

Their committees work with the manufacturing and service industries, government, businesses and consumers to facilitate the production of British, European and International standards.

For bw5266 of the exit door or exit surround, the width of the luminous elements should be at least 50 mm. NOTE If photoluminescent material is in areas receiving excitation as a result of significant and direct illumination by daylight from windows, then testing should be carried out in hours of darkness or with this source of excitation obscured.

The luminous performance recommended in 6. Code of practice for the emergency lighting of premises Status: Luminance measurements should be taken fere 1, 10, 30, 60 min following the interruption of the excitation lighting which may be achieved with a suitable hood at the point of test. Luminance measurements should be5266 taken at points gs5266 lowest ftee highest illuminance and average values may be calculated.

Second edition, February On failure of the normal lighting supply, the photoluminescent system emits the stored energy over a period of time with diminishing luminance. The aim of this standard is to promote wider understanding of non-electrical low sb5266 way guidance systems, to encourage uniformity of application and to give advice on their most effective use within buildings.

We would be grateful if anyone finding an inaccuracy or ambiguity while using this British Standard would inform the Secretary of the technical committee responsible, the identity of which can be found on the inside front cover. An exit’s use should be identified by indicators or markers.
