Strontium Aluminate

Strontium Aluminate

The arrival of new pigments in the 1990's has led to exciting developments for our industry. These new pigments based on alkali earth aluminates doped with rare earth elements have produced the tools for JALITE to design and produce a full range of products to meet all means of escape needs.   This New and advanced technology has allowed JALITE to introduce JLUME photoluminescent materials that produce exceptionally long luminance decay characteristics compared to standard photoluminescent materials. These materials are suitable for high risk areas where egress may be slow or where light levels are lower. JLUME Plus is now well progressing and JALITE will be pushing Standards further for Class E materials in 2006 and for future F and G classes as technology and economics improve. JALITE uses its own proprietary technology for pigments and is fully licensed to use patented technology in the field. Users of high performance photoluminescent materials should assure themselves that any suppliers can produce evidence that they are not infringing current patents, as the application in safety products is also claimed in current patents.

IBC/ICC Code 2009 Section 1024

IBC/ICC Code 2009 Section 1024

All the new tall buildings for commercial and industrial use in Seattle and major cities of Washington State USA will soon benefit from the same systems installed in New York City some 6 years ago. Washington State adopted Section 1024 of the revised IBC Building Code of 2009 to which all new buildings must comply within 2012. Of course, all existing buildings would clearly benefit from adopting the new code irrespective of any electrical systems installed and many forward thinking, "above minimum requirement" property owners will be considering improving their buildings for enhanced tenant safety.

JALITE Photoluminescent Safety Products

JALITE Photoluminescent Safety Products

Photoluminescent Exit Signs, Occupational Health Safety Signs, Fire Safety Signs  and Escape path lighting Way Guidance Products. In 2006 in New York City all tall commercial buildings have been required to be fitted with stairwell egress systems according to RS 6-1 under Local Law 26. The basics of this Code have now been included in ICC/IBC Code 2009 as Luminous escape path marking. JALITE has the products and experience to handle any project in this application as a pioneer, leader and key player in formulating requirements.

Photoluminescent luminance decay

Photoluminescent luminance decay

JALITE products are all systematically tested for photoluminescent luminance decay properties according to the test procedures given in BS ISO 17398 and BS ISO 16069. These methods all relate back to the original milestone German Standard DIN 67510 Part 1. JALITE as founder member of the Photoluminescent Safety Products Association was involved heavily in setting the industry classification system which was formally adopted in the above ISO Standards. With recent developments in Codes and Standards for Photoluminescent Safety Products and in line with the recognized industry development it is now considered necessary to extend the PSPA material classification systems as follows:   Luminance Classes ISO 17398 and PSPA proposals Classification/Luminance mcd/m2 2 mins 10 mins 30 mins 60 mins Class A 108 23 7 3 Class B 210 50 15 7 Class C 690 140 45 20 Class D 1100 260 85 35 Class E 1800 400 120 55 Class F 2300 520 155 70 Class G 3000 650 190 80 The capability now to extend the luminance decay properties to close to 30 times the performance of the old industry base standard is remarkable and opens the door to improved escape route lighting applications and the eventual replacement of electrical escape route lighting.

JALITE Photoluminescent Vinyl

JALITE Photoluminescent Vinyl

JALITE Photoluminescent Vinyl is a complex four part laminated material purpose designed for durable safety markings, signs and tapes. The afterglow, luminace decay characteristics are very closely controlled and uniform and homogenous across the whole surface. The vinyl is extremely high strength and stable. The lamination is in the bulk and is not soft and easy to delaminate as polyester tapes. The adhesive is an excellent high bond strength permanant adhesive to ensure good service for wall signs and hand rail tapes. JALITE produces products that can meet Standards and specifications.

Restaurant Fires: Confinement is Key to Prevention

Restaurant Fires: Confinement is Key to Prevention

Every year, over 5,900 restaurant fires occur in the US alone. 57% of restaurant fires are confined and result in minimal injuries and damage, while 43% are nonconfined fires that are able to burn out of control. Infamous fires such as the Cocoanut Grove and the Station Nightclub became nonconfined fires when staff and/or patrons were unable to extinguish the fire before it spread. According to FireEngineering.com, had occupants been able to find fire extinguishers during that night at the Station Nightclub, the loss of life would have been far less than what occurred. The best way to prevent damage and loss of life in a restaurant fire is early detection and confining the fire before it spreads. This allows employees and patrons a chance to get out safely. While most restaurants in the US have readily available fire extinguishers, but most occupants are not aware of the location of the devices; rendering them useless. JALITE photoluminescent safety signs will allows anyone to find a fire extinguisher even in the darkest and smokiest conditions, giving them time to get out of danger.
