Safety Wayguidance Systems

Safety Wayguidance Systems

Safety Way Guidance Systems are defined in ISO 16069 as system to provide conspicuous and unambiguous information and sufficient visual cues to enable people to evacuate an occupied area in an emergency along a specified escape route by using a comprehensive arrangement of visual components, signs and markings. Non-electrical safety way guidance systems use JALITE photoluminescent components and offer a safe guard against normal power loss and the possible failure of electrical emergency lighting. ISO 16069 gives the comprehensive group of way guidance Exit signs to be used to lead people effectively along an escape route to the final Exit and to the assembly point.

Brightness Rating MEA

Brightness Rating MEA

The Brightness Rating of a photoluminescent product is the statement of the luminance decay properties after illumination with 2 ft candles of white (4000-4500oK) fluorescent lights for 2 hours. The statement is the luminance after 10 minutes, 60 minutes and 90 minutes after activation. The minimum requirement for New York City stairwell egress systems is MEA BR 30-7-5. Brightness Rating BR is noted on all components of systems approved by the New York Building Division Material Evaluation and Acceptance Department for use in High Rise Egress Path Marking Systems to be used to meet Local Law 26 RS6-1 of New York City. JALITE AAA and JLUME materials were used by the New York City Building Division as basic calibration materials for independant testing laboratory approval and were the first materials approved for this application. Many more details are available from JALITE Technical Service to provide clear understanding about expected performance under all types of illumination conditions. Needless to say with JALITE competence and experience in this field sytems can be produced to satisfy all requirements. It is fundamental however to note that ALL photoluminescent systems require illumination in order to function. Adequate illumination of the best type possible will provide always the necessary and best possible results.

The Costa Concordia: Lessons Learned

The Costa Concordia: Lessons Learned

It’s been over a year since the now infamous Costa Concordia ran aground and partially sunk; 32 people were killed and 64 injured. Since the Concordia, the cruise industry seems to have hit a rough patch. Most recently a fire onboard the Carnival Triumph stranded over 4,000 passengers and crew for 8 days with no power or running water. With all eyes now on the cruise ship industry, what can be taken away from recent disaster to make cruising easy and safe for everyone? The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has released strict guidelines to follow when evacuating a large passenger ship.  Once an alarm has been sounded, passengers are asked to go to the cabin and retrieve their lifejacket before making their way to the assembly station. From the assembly station, passengers are assigned lifeboat locations that they are to report to. The maximum time recommended for an evacuation in 80 minutes; this means on ships like the Triumph and the Concordia, it is recommended that the crew evacuate over 4,000 people in a little over an hour. When the goal is to get everyone evacuated as quickly as possible, conditions can become deadly when patrons attempting to escape the wreckage are lost and disoriented in the dark corridors of the ship. JALITE nbsp; is here to light the way for with our exceptional brightness and long lasting illumination no matter the circumstances.  Our new Life Safety Product Catalog features the latest in marine photoluminescent signs and products.

The JALITE fire safety sign audit requires a close examination of the occupied area in order to assess that risks have been identified and mitigated with safety signs designed to good practice. Furthermore, that the fire safety signs are positioned appropriately and are clearly visible and understandable under the expected conditions of observation. A fire safety sign survey is an integral part of the required formal and legally enforceable fire risk assessment and can assist this process tremendously. For more information about the JALITE Fire Safety sign survey and how it forms a key part of Fire Safety Policy do not hesitate to ask for our free guides or contact our sponsored magazine and publications at www.means-of-escape.com It is also a requirement to ensure that all employees are given training and education to understand the safety signs displayed and to behave accordingly.
