Egress Signage & Low-level Emergency Path Illumination

INPS has worked closely with many mass transit car builders and transit authorities to design, engineer and manufacture egress signage and low-level emergency path illumination systems that work functionally and financially.

Our egress signage and low-level emergency path illumination products, referred to as Low-Location Exit Path Markings (LLEPM), are manufactured using the highest-quality materials in terms of durability and safety. They are suitable for new or existing rubber or carpet floor coverings and other applications such as seats and walls.

Railroad Egress and Path Illumination Requirements

Low-location Exit Path Markings (LLEPM) are mandatory on all passenger rolling stock related to the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) and have become mandatory on all equipment operating under the self-regulating guidelines of the American Public Transportation Association (APTA). They are part of each transit agency’s emergency preparedness plans. To minimize cost and increase ease of installation, INPS has developed turnkey solutions that include egress signage and low-level emergency path illumination products.
