New York City was the first legal jurisdiction to adopt as law the use of photoluminescent technology in the vertical exits of high rise facilities.The common terminology for this requirement is Stairwell Egress path marking however in photoluminescent terms is Safety Wayguidance system (SWG) or non-electrical, escape route lighting. JALITE is proud to haveplayed a big part of this development. JALITE was the leading manufacturer of photoluminescent safety products on the New York City task force that developed their reference standard for high rise, exit path markings (RS6-1) in accordance with their Local law 26. RS6-1 and which became the basis for revisions to the IBC, NFPA and Canadian building codes. JALITE is playing a major part in satisfying the needs of building owners and facilites management as we observe the progressive adoption of the IBC 2009 Code throughout the world.
JALITE Compliant Means NYC Code Compliant In reviewing New York City's new code, you can be confident that JALITE entire NYC RS 6-1 product line is 100% code compliant. In writing Local Law 26, the New York City Council gave the duty of writing the requirements with regards to the use of photoluminescence in Class E high rises to the Department of Buildings (DOB). In 2004 Jalite USA chaired a pro bono task force of experts in the areas of human behavior, photoluminescence, fire safety, and stairwell egress to put together a formal recommendation to the DOB. This group's recommendation, delivered in October of 2004, served as the key technical starting point for the Reference Standard 6-1 which was finally published in June of 2005. When Building Departments' Commissioner Lancaster appointed a 10-member panel to review and finalize RS 6-1 code requirements, JALITE alone was asked to represent the manufacturers. When the department of Materials and Equipment Approval (MEA) qualified the laboratories that could test photoluminescent material, they asked for different grades of JALITE material to test each lab's competency in testing the luminance of photoluminescent material. Why did New York City turn to JALITE? Because for 30 years, we've been developing code compliant directional and exit guidance systems for government, commercial, and residential environments around the world. Our photoluminescent systems light the way to safety on six continents in dozens of languages and are tailored to hundreds of local codes making JALITE the world's largest purchaser of photoluminescent pigments. That's why we say "Jalite compliant means NYC code compliant." One phone call to (800) 901-4374 can solve all your NYC code requirements. One email to email@example.com will put you in contact with a dealer trained to answer all your questions and to supply you with everything you need to certify your building.

Many countries and jurisdictions require safety communications to be unambiguous and understood by two or sometimes more audiences using different languages. While using grahical symbols that are well designed and in particular chosen at International Level in ISO 7010 as having a good level of comprehension between groups of different cultures the use of "supplementary" text is still often recommended in many cases. In areas operating dual language communications, safety signs are designed and produced using Dual Language text. JALITE proposes Dual Language text safety signs for many countries and in particular where the English Language is required for an International Audience as well as the local language.
