Welcome to the Photoluminescent Lighting Council
Established in 2015, the Photoluminescent Lighting Council (PLC) is the leading organisation for the photoluminescent lighting industry in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia/Pacific Region.
Building Codes around the world are changing to recognise photoluminescent products as not only do they contribute to effective emergency lighting systems, but are also sustainable and economical. Alongside Australia and New Zealand, countries such as USA, Canada and Japan have all adopted this technology into their respective Building Codes.
The aim of the PLC is to further the understanding and use of photoluminescent products and solutions.
Accordingly, the PLC has developed the following objectives:-
- To further the use of photoluminescent and other alternative technologies which enhance emergency visibility and exit signs in evacuation routes and escape routes.
- To contribute to the development of standards which facilitate the use of photoluminescent and other alternative technologies and performance solutions to meet emergency visibility and exit sign requirements of building codes.
- To support education and professional development relating to photoluminescent and other alternative technologies and performance solutions for emergency visibility and exit signs.
- To promote and encourage technical development of emergency visibility and exit sign products and systems.
- To encourage the integration of alternative technologies with traditional lighting systems.
The PLC board of directors has ratified the following parts of PLCS 101 Photoluminescent Exit Signs:
