Our main lines of business include: Emergency Management and Preparedness. We design egress systems as per IBC 2009..
KR Holdings, Inc. has been listed in the Blue Book since 2013.
As you are aware, IBC/IFC 2009 and later requires Photo Luminescent
Egress Pathway Marking in the stairwells and enclosed egress paths in
most high rise facilities per section 10. Many areas have not even
seen this amazing technology and have no idea about the products on
the market today, what is truly acceptable by code and the best way to
implement this code requirement. However they are still expected to
consider and implement these codes.
If your area is considering adopting or have adopted IBC/IFC 2009 or
later we would like to offer our expertise in this area. We continue
to work with Fire Marshals, Captains and Life Safety personnel to help
them to understand the benefits of this technology, the code
requirement and its intent. For example, the code says paint is
acceptable per ASTM E2072, however when you read ASTM requirements,
paint is only acceptable when it is pre-applied to a substrate. This
is just one small example of how we can help municipalities better
understand this code and the best way to implement it in their area.
Today’s technology has allowed for these products to be made to last
for many years with no toxicity or concerns to the environment. Our
egress products for instance, are UL Listed, have a 10 year warranty
and a 25+ year life expectancy.
