Escape Carpet / Emergency exit sign

Escape Carpet
Escape Carpet

During a fire, thick smoke can make it difficult to follow directions to the nearest exit, but the common exit light requires continuous use and therefore consumes a lot of energy.
With Escape Carpet , people can quickly find out the correct evacuation route, and escape from the fire by the fluorescent arrows on Escape Carpet.
Escape Carpet is knitted of long persistent phosphorescence fabric, which absorbs light from the environment and glow spontaneously in dark without any energy use.
It is non-toxic, washable and has been used widely in interior products.
