Luminescent Gravel


Luminescent Gravel is integrated into concrete flooring to enhance emergency-exit signage within a building. The particles can be masked and evenly distributed throughout the surface of a seamless floor, or grouped in patterns like circles, lines, or arrows, or in combination with different colors of gravel. In the absence of light, such as during a power outage, the particles become immediately recognizable as an evacuation guidance system.
