To compliment egress path marking on walls, floors and steps, floor numbering, stair case identification and orientation signs are essential for smooth ordered and planned evacuation. It is just common sense to make it perfectly clear where people are and where they need to go in an emergency. If you are looking for a complete plan of orientation and stairway management and require a personalised service including instruction for cross over floors and escap path instruction do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org your problem will be solved !
There are two types of photoluminescence and these are fluorescence and phosphorescence. Fluorescent materials absorb light and then emit light instantaneously at a different wavelength. Phosphorescent materials absorb light of short wavelength and then emit light slowly over time also at a different, longer wavelength. It is often the case that the two photoluminescent phenomena can occur at the same time and indeed JALITE produce special high visibility products that are highly conspicuous in both the "daylight" and dark condition to improve visibility of escape paths.These are shown in the picture above this article. Typical safety grade phosphorescent materials absorb in the UV, Blue light visible region (300 - 450nm) of the spectrum and emit in the yellow green (500- 600nm). JALITE materials are covered by the technically correct term phosphorescent. The energy needed to activate it is supplied by common light sources such as daylight, ordinary tungsten filament and the most effective fluorescent lights with a high colour temperature. Under sudden power loss situations, the material immediately appears very bright and is conspicuous at a distance, providing an effective, bright contrast for text and graphical symbols and ensuring that safety messages are quickly recognised. This assists people to orientate themselves so that they can react effectively and evacuate efficiently. JALITE materials are designed specifically to maximize both high initial brightness and persistence which is often expressed as long after glow.. Furthermore, as for the flagship products JALITE AAA and JALITE SB they can be charged easily at low illumination and with short exposure times to light energy.
Photoluminescent Luminance decay properties of JALITE products. JALITE products are all systematically tested for photoluminescent 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 instrumental 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 25 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. For more technical details and luminance properties under different light sources and illumination conditions please register and contact us.
The Health and safety sign association (HSSA) has two basic aims as follows create greater safety through the proper use of safety and other statutory signs. develop and maintain industry standards and act as an industry voice to those formulating standards and legislation internationally. www.hssa.co.uk
There are over 1 million people injured and 12,000 fatalities due to falling down stairs each year; in people ages 64-84, falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths. In addition, businesses pay roughly over $11 billion a year on workplace accident. Statistics indicate the problem is actually getting worse, with the number of injuries from falling down stairs doubling in the last 10 years. Compare this to the number of fire injuries, which has been reduced by half, and one can see this issue must be addressed. There is a misconception that falling down stairs is due to poor traction, however building consultant expert and researcher Jake Pauls has found that it has more to do with people not properly seeing the stairs and misstepping. Experts suggest that you can prevent a misstep not only by improving lighting conditions, but also by marking the nosing of every step to make them more visible. That is why JALITE offers our range of stair markers, engineered to be visible in both normal and emergency conditions. For more information contact JALITE today.
May 6th marks the first week of the 33rd annual International Code Council’s 2013 Building Safety Month, which sets out to raise awareness about building safety. In week one Fire Safety and Awareness is the theme and why we’d like to bring your attention to how fire equipment is being rendered useless. How? Because fire safety equipment becomes hidden in the “everyday” of the workplace, or obscured in an emergency by smoke or a power outage. That is why this week we would like to discuss fire safety equipment location and identification. Last Year between 70,000 and 80, 000 workplace fires were reported in the U.S. alone, with over 200 death and 5,000 injuries received as a result. For this very reason, OSHA mandates that fire equipment not only be provided but also identified and maintained. Yet we here at JALITE have found that a disturbing number of employees have no idea where fire equipment is located under normal circumstances, never mind in an emergency. If employees cannot find fire equipment in an emergency then not only is the investment in the equipment wasted, but so are those first minutes that could have saved lives. So what is there to do? Over the past 30 years, JALITE has trained fire professionals on how to provide a low cost solutions that identifies life saving fire equipment, especially in an emergency. Our photoluminescent Fire Safety Signs are guaranteed to shine with exceptional brightness and long lasting illumination no matter the circumstance.
