Lumonall, Inc.: Industry Expert Appointed

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 9, 2007) - Lumonall Inc. (OTCBB:LUMN), in its ongoing mission to maintain a proactive and leadership position in the Photoluminescent (glow-in-the-dark) safety products market, has announced the addition of industry expert Geir Drangsholt to its team.

Mr. Drangsholt is considered one of the world's foremost authorities on Photoluminescent Material (PLM) and Safety Way Guidance Systems, Lumonall Inc.'s primary product offerings. An engineer by trade, Mr. Drangsholt has been instrumental on a global level for developing standards and principles for PLM Safety Way Guidance Systems and other fire safety models.

In 1997, the need for universal exit path marking systems in buildings was deemed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as one of the most critical applications for standardized signage. For six years, a multidisciplinary committee of the world's experts in evacuation systems and graphical symbols, which included Mr. Drangsholt as a Norwegian delegate, met several times a year to develop ISO 16069. The result, published in 2003, is a standard that sets forth the basic principles for designing egress path marking systems for buildings. In Canada, the National Research Council recently announced similar findings, confirming the value and importance of PLM Safety Way Guidance Systems as an effective and improved means of evacuation in emergency conditions.

Mr. Drangsholt is also head of the Norwegian group writing the Norwegian Standard for SWGS, based on ISO 16069. He has also been Managing Director and Senior Engineer of TekOk AS, a private fire consultant company in Norway, since 2000.

Mr. Drangsholt most recently attended Lumonall's first official Distributor Meeting, held in Chicago, Illinois at the end of August.

The inaugural meeting was positioned to train and mobilize 20 new Lumonall™ sales and marketing managers to start major metro penetration across North America, and included strategy and training sessions featuring Mr. Drangsholt, as well as Lumonall Inc. Director and Prolink International AS Sales and Development Manager, Bjorn Pedersen.

The duo provides unparalleled insight and expertise with regard to PLM and its applications in the safety sector. Mr. Pedersen was an actual fire fighter for 12 years before joining Prolink International in Norway, in addition to three years as a building/construction advisor, 15 years as a fire consultant, and one year as a fire marshal.

Early partners in Lumonall Inc., Mr. Pedersen and Mr. Drangsholt were recently nominated to the Board of Directors, along with Prolink International AS Managing Director, Frank Hoyen, on September 4, 2007.

"With Geir aboard, as well as Bjorn and Frank, Lumonall is truly 'Best by Far'," says Mike Hetherman, President and COO of Lumonall Inc. "Geir is recognized globally for his work in this field, ensuring that products like ours make and surpass the accepted standards. We are leading the pack."
