Fire safety is rarely on the forefront of our minds. In our everyday lives, fire tragedies are things that happen to other people on the evening news. The truth is that 2,640 people died and 15,635 were injured in 484,500 fires in 2011, in the US alone. Fires are not a rarity; in the US there was a structure fire reported every minute in 2011. So, what can you do to help yourself, people you care about, employees, customers, and first responders? It’s simple. Clearly identify your emergency exits and ensure that they are accessible. Blocked emergency exits are a major problem all around the world; infamous events like Coconut Grove fire, the Station Night club, and now the Kiss Nightclub fire in Brazil. Others are well known because so many people were killed when their emergency exits were blocked. But others exist, just as tragic but less well known because there were fewer fatalities. Tragedies like this one can be prevented. Rick Ornberg, author and former firefighter, recently wrote an article on his blog about the importance of keeping emergency exits clear. “National fire codes are full of life-safety related requirements that were written following one of several major tragedies in the workplace, in schools and in places of public assembly. Many of those were written after incidents where piles of burned corpses were found stacked against a locked or blocked exit.” Ornberg wrote, in response to seeing several emergency exits blocked in local restaurants and businesses. One needs only to search blocked exits to see the truth in Ornber’s words; Wikipedia has an entire section dedicated to tragedies caused by blocked exits. If you see an exit being blocked at your workplace or where you eat and shop, will you do yourself and those around the service of mentioning it to someone in charge? If your place of work routinely has an exit blocked installing the appropriate sign is the least you can do to assist in keeping your facility and its occupants safe.

JALITE products are all systematically tested for photoluminescent luminance 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 involved heavily 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 23 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 e-mail or contact us.
JALITE manufactures and process 1000's of square meters of photoluminescent material each year for over 25 years no other company has this experience in this field
