Flex-Evac Evacuation Indicators
An effective and efficient way to show that a room still needs to be checked during an evacuation or emergency.
Most other products indicate that the room has been checked (with either a flag, flipped or swivelled sign). During a sweep each doors needs to be checked to see if it has been activated. This can be time consuming in a dark or smoke filled hallway.
With the Flex-Evac, if someone has re-entered the room, or if the room was missed in the original evacuation, the photoluminescent marker shows the room needs to be checked, resulting in a much quicker evacuation and sweep.
Features both reflective and photoluminescent markers
Saves time in evacuation by highlighting with the patch which rooms need to be checked vs. which rooms have already been checked and cleared.
Durable and able to withstand wheelchair and cart contact
Can be modified to work with wooden door frames in older homes.

HOW THEY WORK
After staff evacuate a room, they lift the flap on the Flex-Evac tag and attach it to the door frame with a magnet hiding the photoluminecent tag.
This exposes a VACANT sign and creates a link between the door and the door frame.
If the door is reopened, the link is broken and the flap drops down, covering the VACANT sign and re-exposing the photoluminescent marker.
This marker which is visible in dark and smoke-filled corridors indicates the room must be checked.
The markers stay illuminated for 4-6 hours and rapidly self-charge once re-exposed to light.
Any room evacuation system should be mounted below door handle height in the event of smoke filling a hallway and obscuring higher mounted devices.
