Se debe estimular lumínicamente con luz ambiental baja y debe tener una respuesta lumínica mínima de densidad fotoluminiscente superior a 560mcd/m2 a los 10 min. y una atenuación superior a 5.700 min., medidos según Norma UNE 23035/03. The photoluminescent properties for this type of escape route marking is a special type of Class where the 10 minute brightness is of particular importance and has been a feature of JALITE products since the time of very high initial brightness pigments with shorter decay times.
In an emergency, ensuring your occupants can find the exit door is rarely neglected, but ensuring they will easily open the door when they have to, has been tragically overlooked. Past fires have proven that occupants were able to find the exit door, however due to smoke or power outages, they were unable to find the hardware to open it, succumbing to smoke inhalation only inches from safety. Ensure the safety of the staff at your facility and mark your egress hardware with JALITE Photoluminescent tapes and door signs. Want to get it done? Contact us to find a Distributor.
Luminous Egress Path Marking will significantly improve the means of egress provisions in tall buildings and be of great assistance to evacuees in case of emergency or power loss. The non -electrical safety wayguidance system basis from ISO 16069 is still the technical base and root for the luminous egress path system and JALITE has been at the forfront of all these developments. JALITE products are installed in the vast majority of the tall buildings in New York City and performance over the last 6 years since installation has been second to none. Jalite is the obvious choice for building owners and facilty managers requiring to meet IBC/ICC Code 2009 Section 1024.
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.
To maintain a safe work place, and comply with OSHA requirements, employers must provide the proper signs to indicate the exit route, and the safety equipment installed in their facility. For example Section 1910.37(b) which states: "Each exit must be clearly visible and marked by a sign reading 'Exit.' " or Section 1926.34(b): " 'Exit marking.' Exits shall be marked by a readily visible sign. Access to exits shall be marked by readily visible signs in all cases where the exit or way to reach it is not immediately visible to the occupants". Ask your local Jalite Distributor for our OSHA compliant EXIT sign to ensure your workplace is compliant, even if there is a loss of power! Best practice in response to risk assessment would demand a comprehensive array of directional signs meeting OSHA requirments to ensure that the means of escape is secured at all times. JALITE Photoluminescent products add that extra and essential feature of mitigating the risk of failure of emergency lighting or protecting occupied areas not requiring such provisions. Furthermore, they provide the means to provide directional information duplicated at low location providing escape path information economically and without the need for heavy costs of wiring and maintenance. OSHA regulations also require safety signs and notices to be used to reduce risk by reinforcing training and education, to provide warnings of risks in the workplace and protective measures, including the prohibition of behaviour likely to create a risk of any kind.
