JALITE photoluminescent signs are in a Class of their own by design of the communicated message and remain conspicuous and recognizeable in darkness. JALITE safety signs provide the visible cues and direction information for speedy and orderly escape in an emergency and in power loss. JALITE photoluminescent safety signs form part of a comprehensive fire safety management strategy and fulfill both legislative conformance requirements and enhanced safety and reduced risk in many situations. JALITE is happy to work with all organisations with a high safety awareness and desire for improvement to develop a detailed safety signing policy consistent with embracing this technology and moving to an "above minimum safety' environment. The advances in luminance performance and in unique manufacturing techniques produce visual properties of JALITE UL 924 Exit Signs that offer an extremely viable option to electrical emergency Exit signs and are now also available to meet ISO Standard designs.
Self-luminous signs provide an alternative to the traditional electrical exit sign, but what are the options with self-luminous signs? One option is to use a Tritium exit sign, which is illuminated by a radioactive isotope of helium gas known as Tritium. The Tritium emits light for anywhere between 10 to 20 years as it decays. In order to have Tritium signs, it is required that the consumer have a “general license” that allows the radioactive material to be traced to them in the event that it is mishandled. They must also report all their signs to the NRC to ensure they are being properly disposed of; a process which can cost companies $100 or more per sign. In 2009, Wal Mart reported 15,000 of their 70,000 Tritium signs as missing, raising concerns that the signs may have been improperly disposed of and risked contaminating the environment and drinking water of surrounding neighborhoods. Wal Mart has since stopped all purchase of Tritium signs and has moved on to using photoluminescent exit sign where applicable. While Tritium exit signs are a viable non-electrical alternative to mark your exits, the risk associated with their radioactivity in your facility, their regulatory compliance requirements, and the cost of disposal makes them a difficult option to choose. For more information about another non-electrical option to identify your exits contact us, or visit our website exclusively devoted to photoluminescent UL Listed Exit signs.
SEÑALIZACIÓN DE EMERGENCIAY BALIZAMIENTO Señalización y balizamiento fotoluminiscente Jalite o similar sera en ACERO con aleación de Níquel-Cromo-Molibdeno, Ni-Cr-Mo 1,4404 de 1mm de espesor, con características fotoluminiscentes en base a pigmentos de aluminatos de estroncio inorgánicos (SrAl2O4: Eu, Dy) totalmente inertes con resistencia a la temperatura de más de 1.000 ºC. Se debe estimular lumínicamente con luz ambiental baja y debe tener una respuesta lumínica mínima de densidad fotoluminiscente superior a 560mcd/m2 a los 10 min. y una atenuación superior a 5.700 min., medidos según Norma UNE 23035/03. The photoluminescent properties for this type of escape route marking is a special type of Class where the 10 minute brightness is of particular importance and has been a feature of JALITE products since the time of very high initial brightness pigments with shorter decay times.
JALITE (UK) PLC pioneered the application and development of photoluminescent systems in harsh environment of the North Sea Marine and Offshore markets in the 80's and the movement to escape route lighting in all workplaces.

May13th marks week two of the International Code Council’s Building Safety Month focusing on Disaster Safety and Mitigation. With hurricane season being less than two months away, JALITE wants to know: As an employer, are you prepared to keep your employees safe during a disaster? NYU Hospital thought it was prepared when it installed backup generators. During 2012’s deadly Hurricane Sandy, which claimed the lives of almost 300 people and left over 8 million people without power, over 200 patients in NYU hospital were forced to be evacuated when their backup generators failed. With a hospital plunged into darkness, some patients had to be carried down 15 flights of stairs with only a flashlight to guide them. As we’ve mentioned before in our article about “slips, trip, and falls”, visual impairment when walking down stair is one of the leading causes of workplace injuries; a task made even more challenging when done in the dark. NYU wasn’t the only hospital evacuate in the darkness. In fact, several NYC hospitals were also evacuated due to power failures. With over 178 million power outages each year in the US, how do you safely evacuate a building? JALITE egress markers and stair markers are manufactured to guide you to safety under any circumstances; our photoluminescent technology makes is clear to see in even the darkest conditions. Contact us for more information!
To maintain a safe work place, and comply with OSHA requirements, employers must provide the proper signs to indicate the exit route, and the safety equipment installed in their facility. For example Section 1910.37(b) which states: "Each exit must be clearly visible and marked by a sign reading 'Exit.' " or Section 1926.34(b): " 'Exit marking.' Exits shall be marked by a readily visible sign. Access to exits shall be marked by readily visible signs in all cases where the exit or way to reach it is not immediately visible to the occupants". Ask your local Jalite Distributor for our OSHA compliant EXIT sign to ensure your workplace is compliant, even if there is a loss of power! Best practice in response to risk assessment would demand a comprehensive array of directional signs meeting OSHA requirments to ensure that the means of escape is secured at all times. JALITE Photoluminescent products add that extra and essential feature of mitigating the risk of failure of emergency lighting or protecting occupied areas not requiring such provisions. Furthermore, they provide the means to provide directional information duplicated at low location providing escape path information economically and without the need for heavy costs of wiring and maintenance. OSHA regulations also require safety signs and notices to be used to reduce risk by reinforcing training and education, to provide warnings of risks in the workplace and protective measures, including the prohibition of behaviour likely to create a risk of any kind.
