Tarkett Announces Introduction of Newly Updated Safe-T-First® Offerings!

Safe-T-First® Luminous Egress Path System uses photoluminescent technology to provide a complete escape routing system through emergency egress stairwells and hallways that may go dark in the event of a fire or unexpected power outage. Safe-T-First meets the current International Building Codes requirements – all buildings over 75 feet in height shall provide approved luminous egress path markings within interior exit stairways, ramps and passageways.


  • Low maintenance, highly durable surface finishes that diminish the use of water, chemicals and energy
  • Inorganic strontium aluminate crystals used in the photoluminescence are non-toxic and free from radioactivity
  • Made in the U.S.A. in an ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 Certified Plant
  • 36 palette A ColorMatch® colors that coordinate through every Johnsonite flooring solution

The system includes all the components required to outfit luminous egress pathways:

  • Handrail markings
  • Stair markings
  • Perimeter demarcation
  • Door markings
  • Obstacle markings
  • Much more here!

Safe-T-First integrates photoluminescent technology into color and design coordinated resilient flooring products, allowing the space to look well designed, in addition to providing safe passage. Looking for maintenance, warranty or installation information?
