ISO 23601 Escape and Evacuation Plan Signs

ISO 23601 Escape and Evacuation Plan Signs

There is now an ISO Standard for such plans including a recommendation for photoluminescent material with no less than Class C ISO 17398 performance – ISO 23601 – Safety identification – Escape and evacuation plan signs The following is the abstract for users: ISO 23601:2009 establishes design principles for displayed escape plans that contain information relevant to fire safety, escape, evacuation and rescue of the facility's occupants. These plans may also be used by intervention forces in case of emergency. These plans are intended to be displayed as signs in public areas and workplaces. ISO 23601:2009 is not intended to cover the plans to be used by external safety services nor detailed professional technical drawings for use by specialists. Escape and evacuation plan signs should be designed by experienced designers to make floor plans visible and legible, easy to identify and read and oriented correctly. JALITE can make your plans effective and reflect best current practice. They can be reproduced on high quality Class C photoluminescent material according to ISO 23601:2009 or sub surface printed on fire resistant polycarbonate or PVC. Call us or register

Photoluminescent Door Markings

Photoluminescent Door Markings

In an emergency, ensuring your occupants can find the exit door is rarely neglected, but ensuring they will easily open the door when they have to, has been tragically overlooked. Past fires have proven that occupants were able to find the exit door, however due to smoke or power outages, they were unable to find the hardware to open it, succumbing to smoke inhalation only inches from safety. Ensure the safety of the staff at your facility and mark your egress hardware with JALITE Photoluminescent tapes and door signs. Want to get it done? Contact us to find a Distributor.

Emergency Lighting Exit Signs

Emergency Lighting Exit Signs

The field of emergency lighting has been traditionally dominated by electrically powered signs for quite some time and has ventured into the realm of fire safety despite its prime function of operating in the case of power failure and not specifically of fire. However, it is fairly unknown that there exists a proven, cost effective alternative, that operates under all lighting conditions and especially in cases where normal and emergency lighting are not functioning.  This alternative exists in the form of JALITE photoluminescent technology. This technology works by means of photoluminescent properties retaining any energy from any sources of ambient light. Upon cessation of the ambient light, the photoluminescent product emits the stored energy as highly visible light in the most sensitive region of detection of the human eye. Photoluminescent technology is a more sensible option simply because of its effectivness combined with the energy and maintenance cost savings which potentially exist for a variety of facilities.  For example, JALITE UL924 designed exit signs can meet the international ISO and U.S. NFPA codes as well as the N.Y.C. building codes. Now if it's possible to economically provide emergency lighting Exit and directional signing to an entire high rise building at a significantly lower cost compared to the expenses electrical, emergency lighting would cost, why wouldn't you?

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.

Stay Safe in a Tall Building, Know the Plan

Stay Safe in a Tall Building, Know the Plan

In July of 2009, a fire broke out on the 9th floor of a 14-storey residency by the south of London. The fire quickly spread to the 11th floor where it took the lives of six residents. Weeks before the fire one of the victims had asked why there were no diagrams in the building to show where the emergency exits were. Those who perished in the fire had remained in their flat, but those who did escape the blaze described the scene as being “chaotic” and said that the maze-like layout of the building made evacuation extremely difficult. Why weren’t evacuation plans installed within the large, 14-storey building? An inquiry into the answer of that question began on January 14, 2013.   The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) released an article on their site that describes how to stay safe if you are in a tall building. The number one tip? Know the plan. The article says, “Make sure that you're familiar with your building's evacuation plan, which should illustrate what residents are supposed to do in the event of an emergency.” These all important diagrams were unfortunately absent from too many tragedies. Ensure that the occupants and staff in your facility stay safe and “know the plan.” Contact JALITE today to find out how you can install photoluminescent evacuation plans to identify the way out in both a light and dark emergency. With JALITE evacuation plans you can rest assured that - When the lights go out, ours go on™.
