SWARCO afterglow marking systems, developed in cooperation with pigment specialist NighTec, are markings which store UV light during the day and emit it in darkness in a yellowish or blueish colour. Duration and intensity of the afterglow effect depend on the amount of afterglow aggregates and the layer thickness of the marking and can reach between 8 and 10 hours. The punctually afterglowing aggregates are perceived at larger distances as a continuously illuminated marking.

Afterglow systems are innovative SWARCO markings offering better orientation in the dark for escape routes, cycle paths and parks and thus enhancing (road)safety.


Areas Of Use

Typical locations for the application of long-time afterglow safety guidance systems for the marking of escape routes:

location_city

Multi-storey buildings with many people and multiple uses,  e.g. production sites, office buildings, power plants, warehouses, logistical centres

airplanemode_active

Airports, underground railways
