DHi Photoluminescent Safety Paint Now Approved for New York City Buildings

Defense Holdings Inc. (DHi) announced that the New York City Department of Buildings has formally granted a Materials and Equipment Acceptance (MEA) number to the company's  AfterGlo(TM) High-Performance Photoluminescent Green safety paint. Now owners of Class E office buildings in New York have an attractive, cost-effective, easy-to-apply alternative to tape-based photoluminescent (PL) safety products currently in use on stairs and stairwell landings. These were initially the only approved products available to address updated building safety requirements mandated by Local Law 26 in 2006.

DHi's High-Performance Photoluminescent Green paint is a PL Safety Solution for challenging building environments, including walls and stairwells that exhibit highly worn or irregular surface conditions. DHi's AfterGlo(TM) paint can be brushed or rolled directly on concrete, wood, metal or painted surfaces. It can be used on floors as well as vertical surfaces such as door trims. It's a tough, abrasion-resistant acrylic polymer coating that resists wear and tear.

Application is simple and when the job is done, it is easy to clean both brushes and accidental spills with soap and water when the paint is still wet. When properly cured, the coating can be washed with standard household and institutional cleaners and a stiff-bristle brush.

For building owners concerned with the environment, DHi's PL paint charges with existing ambient light; it requires no additional electricity and doesn't require electric power to operate. It's a green solution for emergency stairwell safety, fully compliant with Local Law 26.

The New York City Department of Buildings MEA division regulates materials and equipment requiring the Departments acceptance, including manufactured items affecting public safety, health and welfare that are usually considered a permanent part of a building. The new MEA number for DHi's AfterGlo High-Performance Photoluminescent Green paint is MEA 387-07-M.
