Lumonall Inc.: NRC Report Supports Photoluminescent Safety Systems

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2007) - Lumonall Inc. (OTCBB:LUMN) is pleased to announce that a National Research Council of Canada report studying the effectiveness of photoluminescent (PLM) products was officially released last week. The study, jointly funded by Public Works and Government Services Canada and the NRC, was done with the support of Lumonall Inc. and confirms the value and importance of PLM Safety Way Guidance Systems (SWGS) as an effective and improved means of evacuation in emergency conditions.

Conducted in the C.D. Howe building in Ottawa, Ontario, a 13-storey building that is home to Industry Canada and the Office of the Auditor General, the report included two other PLM manufacturers in addition to Lumonall Inc.

According to the report (entitled "Evaluation of the effectiveness of different photoluminescent stairwell installations for the evacuation of office building occupants"), "Renovations to the Pentagon following the September 11, 2001 attack included the addition of a PLM (Safety Way Guidance System) in corridors and stairs, while the United Nations installed such a system in 2003. New York City recognized as a result of the events of September 11, 2001, and the blackout of August 2003, that a PLM (Safety Way Guidance System) is an essential component to ensure occupant safety in high-rise structures." New York City officially passed Local Law 26 on May 31, 2005, which required all existing or new high-rise office buildings over 75-feet-tall to install a PLM SWGS by July 2006.

Furthermore, according to the report, "other building codes are also in the process of adopting measures to use photoluminescent safety markings as a means of better defining escape routes, and this technology will continue to be developed and used."

"The findings in this report substantiate what we always knew," states Mike Hetherman, President and COO of Lumonall Inc. "There is unprecedented need and market demand for Lumonall™ PLM products. We started this company knowing that our Lumonall™ Exit Signs and Safety Way Guidance Systems can save lives. This report confirms it. And not only are they confirmed as essential safety measures, Lumonall™ products are also energy-free, environmentally-friendly alternatives to traditional safety signage, and they save you money!"
