Safety Signs and Symbols Since the early 1970's, National and International Standards bodies have been working to provide best practice in the design of graphical symbol safety signs. The ultimate goal is to communicate effectively with safety signs and symbols that are independent of language. With base work being done in the 1990's on the process of standardization and coordination of efforts from all over the world, the keystone International Standard ISO 7010 was born. ISO 7010 -2011 has now completed a further revision to cover the vast majority of safety signs and symbols common to the workplace. Many more are in the process of standardisation covering more specialised fields and to provide essential accreditation to the best practice available for all the presently standardised safety signs from many other ISO sources and the world. JALITE has participated in this process now for more than 20 years and offers the ultimate service of design and conformance to best practice standards. It is expected that ISO 7010 will be adopted as the National Standard by many countries and has now become the European Standard as ISO EN 7010.
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 signs are in a Class of their own by design of the communicated message and remain conspicuous and recognizeable in darkness. JALITE safety signs provide the visible cues and direction information for speedy and orderly escape in an emergency and in power loss. JALITE photoluminescent safety signs form part of a comprehensive fire safety management strategy and fulfill both legislative conformance requirements and enhanced safety and reduced risk in many situations. JALITE is happy to work with all organisations with a high safety awareness and desire for improvement to develop a detailed safety signing policy consistent with embracing this technology and moving to an "above minimum safety' environment. The advances in luminance performance and in unique manufacturing techniques produce visual properties of JALITE UL 924 Exit Signs that offer an extremely viable option to electrical emergency Exit signs and are now also available to meet ISO Standard designs.
Jalite AAA photoluminescent tapes are like no other, engineered with the highest initial luminance in its class, it gives occupants the most light when they need it - during the first minutes of a power outage. Jalite AAA tapes luminance also last an extraordinarily long time, even with a minimal charge or exposure to the background lighting! Jalite photoluminescent tapes have been provided with an exceptionally versatile and strong adhesive for good service on walls and handrails and various surfaces. JALITE Phtoluminescent Tapes were the first tapes full accredited for LLL according to ISO 15370 and approved by the Japanese Ministry of Transport. They were also the first tapes approved by the New York Building Divisions Material and Equipment Acceptance for stairwell egress systems. Unlike many materials used in New York City, JALITE tapes were shown to perform extremely well in all installed locations as required around obstacles and on handrails.
Prohibition fire safety signs are used to enforce control risk measures by identifying specific forbidden behaviour to reinforce and complement formal training. Of course, in fire safety management as well as under Health and Safety regulations in the work place it is essential to prohibit and restrict behaviour that can create a fire risk or a risk of injury. JALITE photoluminescent signs are very conspicuous in all lighting conditions and attract attention hence adding to their effectiveness. JALITE signing provided immediate, visible proof to employees and inspectors of the seriousness of the safety policy and practices in an enterprise.
