Evaluation and comparison of different installations of photoluminescent marking in stairwells of a highrise building

N. Bénichou & G. Proulx
A field study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of a number of different photoluminescent material (PLM) stairwell installations as a safety wayguidance system to support office occupant evacuation. Four identical stairwells were used in the experiment. Video cameras and a questionnaire were used to gather data on the movement time and behaviour of evacuees, their feelings of comfort and safety in the stairwell, and their overall appreciation of the PLM wayguidance emergency evacuation system.
