OmniGrip Direct installs Safety Path PL Paint, a higher visibility linemarking and pavement marking used on roads, bicycle lanes, paths, car parks and industrial sites. Using the natural science of photoluminescence, in darkness Safety Path PL Paints emit stored light so that the lines and pavement markings can be seen to guide people to safety.
How it works
Safety Path PL Paints absorb and store daylight and electric light. When light levels fall, the linemarking or pavement marking that uses Safety Path PL Paint emits that stored light creating a line or marking with enhanced visibility compared to standard painted lines.
Safety Path PL Paints are suitable for bitumen, asphalt and concrete, and can be used indoors and outdoors. They are available as WhiteLiteTM and PureLiteTM, each with differing degrees of whiteness in daylight and the resultant brightness of the line at night.
When used on roads, bicycle lanes and in car parks, the headlights of every passing vehicle re-energises the Safety Path PL Paint, extending the longevity of the enhanced visibility line.
In daylight and bright moonlight, Safety Path PL Paint looks and functions like ordinary linemarking, but in dark conditions it emits stored light enhancing its visibility and the consequential safety benefits for road users, workers and the public.
A significant advantage of Safety Path PL Paint on roads is that it is more visible than ordinary linemarking, and is significantly cheaper to install and operate than electric road lighting. There’s no electricity emissions, and no roadside poles that become new roadside hazards. It gives road agencies, road managers and Councils an option for affordably treating dark high-risk roads without the design, construction and operating costs of electric road lighting.
OmniGrip Direct is an authorised supplier and installer of Safety Path PL Paint. OmniGrip Direct and Safety Path are part of the SmarterLite Group of companies.
SPECIAL safety APPLICATIONS
When the power or lighting fail within industrial or commercial buildings and sites, workers may be trapped in a high-risk environment, or even in complete darkness within an enclosed area. When Safety Path PL Paint is used as a guideline or to mark the extent of safe walkways, trapped workers can still find their way to safety.
Combined with Safety Path‘s Photoluminescent Stair Treads, Handrails, Warning Signs and Exit Signs, even in a blackout your employees will be safe. Speak to your Occupational Health & Safety representatives and facility manager about how and where Safety Path PL paint can improve workplace safety by reducing the risk of injury when the lighting fails.
Indoor and outdoor car parks may be poorly lit and your employees and customers may not feel safe. By using Safety Path PL Paint for linemarking, pavement marking and pedestrian crossings, drivers and pedestrians can still safely find their way when they leave work after-dark or when the lighting has failed. The PL Paint can be complemented by our range of Safety Path PL Warning Signs that remain visible in darkness. This reduces the risk of pedestrians being hit by vehicles, and enables drivers to clearly see car parking bays, car park aisles, pavement arrows and pedestrian crossings.
Safety Path PL Paint is substantially cheaper to install and operate than lighting an outdoor car park, or installing backup power systems for existing lighting.
Safety Path PL Paint for linemarking and pavement marking on roads makes vital lines and markings more visible in poor light conditions and darkness. Safety Path PL Paint is suitable for sites where there is a history of night-time crashes, or a high-risk of night-time crashes, that could be reduced by improved delineation. Safety Path PL Paint can be applied to the kerbs of raised concrete islands, and on concrete crash barriers, as well as road surfaces. Our range of Safety Path Photoluminescent Warning Signs complement the PL Paint to increase the visibility of vital warning messages.
Safety Path PL Paints are suitable for bitumen, asphalt and concrete.
Two options are available:
- WhiteLiteTM, which is closer in appearance to a standard white line in daylight
- PureLiteTM, which has a slightly different colour in daylight but much higher night-time visibility.
Safety Path PL Paint is significantly cheaper to install and operate than standard road lighting and along with Safety Path PL Warning Signs, it should be the first step to addressing night-time delineation issues on public and private roads.
With bicycle lights often not bright enough to light the road or path surface far ahead for the speed of the rider, using Safety Path PL paint for the lane or path edge line and centre line can guide riders along unlit bicycle lanes and bicycle paths during their evening commute or fitness ride home from work.
With Safety Path PL Paint linemarking having enhanced visibility, bicycles lanes along unlit roads will have increased visibility, reducing the likelihood of a vehicle driver encroaching within the lane. On off-road paths, the enhanced visibility of Safety Path PL lines will assist riders with following an unlit path.
