California Building Code – Striping for the Visually Impaired

The California Building Code has the requirement “Striping for the Visually Impaired”: the upper approach and the lower tread of EACH flight of interior stairs to be marked by a slip-resistant (anti-slip) strip of clearly contrasting color with at least 2 inches width.

This 2″ PERMALIGHT® Photoluminescent Aluminum Strip is ideal on that upper Landing Tread Edge and the lower last Step Edge of each flight, while the steps in-between get marked with the 1″ PERMALIGHT® Photoluminescent Aluminum Strip.


PERMALIGHT® Photoluminescent Aluminum Strip glows brightly in pitch dark areas after activation by ambient lighting, creating a visible path during emergency darkness situations on step and landing edges, floor and/or wall-mounted perimeters, and on exit door frames.

PERMALIGHT® Photoluminescent Aluminum Strip has an anti-slip surface and semi-stiff metal (aluminum) base. The foamy self-adhesive layer conforms well to both smooth and porous installation surfaces, as well as being resistant to weather and water absorption while providing a long-lasting bond. You can expect a durable install when used with the required accessories and following our installation instructions.


PERMALIGHT® Photoluminescent Aluminum Strip requires these additional accessories for a successful, code-compliant installation:

  • Pressure Roller – To apply even pressure when bonding strip (floor or wall)
  • Acrylic Lacquer – Final seal for strip edges (floor only)
  • 3M Safety-Walk Primer – Create a stronger bond on floor applications (floor only – optional depending on how well the strip adheres to the surface)
