Strontium Aluminate

Strontium Aluminate

The arrival of new pigments in the 1990's has led to exciting developments for our industry. These new pigments based on alkali earth aluminates doped with rare earth elements have produced the tools for JALITE to design and produce a full range of products to meet all means of escape needs.   This New and advanced technology has allowed JALITE to introduce JLUME photoluminescent materials that produce exceptionally long luminance decay characteristics compared to standard photoluminescent materials. These materials are suitable for high risk areas where egress may be slow or where light levels are lower. JLUME Plus is now well progressing and JALITE will be pushing Standards further for Class E materials in 2006 and for future F and G classes as technology and economics improve. JALITE uses its own proprietary technology for pigments and is fully licensed to use patented technology in the field. Users of high performance photoluminescent materials should assure themselves that any suppliers can produce evidence that they are not infringing current patents, as the application in safety products is also claimed in current patents.

Stairway and Floor numbering signage

Stairway and Floor numbering signage

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 sales@jalite.com your problem will be solved !

Are Nightclubs Safe?: The 10th Anniversary of the Station Nightclub Fire

Are Nightclubs Safe?: The 10th Anniversary of the Station Nightclub Fire

Bars and nightclubs all around the world are under close scrutiny after a fire broke out in Brazil’s Kiss Nightclub, killing over 230 people. The fire, which was started by pyrotechnics set off by a band performing at the club, bared an eerie resemblance to the now infamous nightclub fire that occurred just 10 years ago. On February 20th, 2003 a rock and roll themed club in West Warwick, Rhode Island called Station Nightclub was hosting the band Great White when the band's manager set off pyrotechnics. Although the band had set off these pyrotechnics inside of other venues, the Station’s low and flammable ceiling was quickly set ablaze by a spark that quickly engulfed the nightclub and everyone inside. 100 people lost their lives in the fire, with many more seriously injured. With Kiss Nightclub fire last month and the 10th anniversary of the Station Nightclub fire this week, can we really say that nightclubs have become safer in the last ten years? While many sites offer helpful tips for patrons, such as the NFPA which urges club-goers to check for exits and be aware of their surroundings, owners and employees also need to be aware of imminent danger. Bouncer Online offers 8 tips for owners and employees to ensure that everyone has a safe evening. Their tips include making sure that the club is not over crowded and checking that all emergency exits are clearly labeled and easily accessible; two safety violations that experts say most commonly lead to a high death toll in theses nightclub tragedies. Ensure your nightclub clients are keeping the customers in your community safe, provide them with Jalite Safety signs such as our UL Listed EXIT Sign, and door hardware signs. When the lights go out, ours go on.™ Way-guidance floor signs and notices to Keep Exits Clear are also to be advised. All will shine up so nicely with Night club blue lights!!

How Can You Keep First Responders Safe?

How Can You Keep First Responders Safe?

Words cannot express the importance of first responders. Every day over half a million calls are made to 9-1-1, calls which often bring first responders into action. Employees calling in an emergency at the workplace know the layout of the building, but it is more often the responders first time at the location. It is the responsibility of a business owner to ensure the safety of not only everyday occupants of the building, but also first responder in the event of an emergency. Communicating hazards is key to the safety of both workers and first responders. “Put Yourself in Our Boots” is a campaign that emphasizes how crucial it is that business owners create a safe work environment. Their videos portray how treacherous a lack of communication can be for first responders, most of who are already being placed under deadly circumstances. Traditional safety signs don’t communicate their message very well in an emergency. One way to keep first responders safe, is to communicate safety hazards in your facility using Jalite photoluminescent safety signs. When the lights go out, ours go on.™ For more information on a distributor near you send us an email.

According to DIN 67510 the luminance at 10 minutes decay time and at 60 minutes decay time are used to form a brief description of the luminance decay performance. Hence we have as follows these notations for the classifications of PSPA and ISO 17398 Luminance Classifications and DIN 67510 notation Class A    23/3 Class B    50/7 Class C   140/20 Class D   260/35 JALITE additions Class E 400/55 Class F 520/70 Class G 650/80

Fire Extinguishers and Hoses Become Unusable

Fire Extinguishers and Hoses Become Unusable

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.
