What is HILUX® ?

HILUX® signs are manufactured using a photoluminescent rigid PVC board, printed using digital and screen print processes using UV resistant solvent/Eco-solvent inks. 


Manufactured using non-toxic, non-radioactive luminous pigments that absorb ambient light (natural and artificial) emitting a strong visible glow that is best observed in darkness.


The recommended standard (BS 1SO 17398: 2004) for way guidance luminous signage is PSPA Class C.

HILUX® has been tested in accordance with DIN 67510 pt 1 by an independent laboratory and exceeds the requirements of PSPA class C (see graphs and data below).

 

The material is uniform in appearance in ambient light and also under its own luminance, subject to the excitation source being uniform.
