Fire Safety Sign Audit & Review To provide a visual inspection (up to an hour), whilst on site, of the fire safety signs within an agreed scope that can include Means of escape route identification signs Emergency door opening devices signs Mandatory fire door notices Fire action notices Fire fighting equipment location and type identification Specific hazard identification signs (limitation to be agreed with client, such as mind the step hazards on means of escape route, main electrical intake) Specific prohibition notices (limitation to be agreed with client, such as  do not use the lift in event of fire) Assembly point location signs The Audit would look at the provision of fire safety signs expected to be in place for compliance with Legislation and Regulations.  This would include the existing signs and making an observation as to whether additional signs would be required.  In order to meet the requirements of legislation best practice advice would be given based on the relevant National and/or International Standards relating to the types of signs and their design. The Audit would be followed up with a short report which can include; Reference to the particular piece(s) of legislation needed to comply with Relevant Standard/Code of Practice recommendations are based on Without going into specifics whether or not their signs will meet current regulations.  This could be split into specific types of signs Whether additional signs would be required Whether some existing signs could be removed, including internally illuminated signs to reduce on-going energy consumption Whether or not a full fire safety signs survey would be recommended

The Key to Tunnel Safety: Getting Out

The Key to Tunnel Safety: Getting Out

At 8pm the evening of August 10, 1903 in Paris’ popular Couronnes underground subway passengers anxiously awaited to make their way home. Then an empty train that had caught fire made its way into the station. While at first thought to be under control, the fire soon grew and overwhelmed the stations. With the power cut and smoke quickly spreading, it claimed the lives of 84 people. While this is one of the earliest tunnel tragedies, it certainly wasn’t the last: - On November 18, 1987 31 people were killed when a similar fire broke out in the King’s Cross tube tunnels when they became disoriented and trapped by darkness and smoke. - On March 24, 1999 truck fire in the Mont Blanc Tunnel in the Alps killed 38 people who were trapped in the tunnel and unsure of what to do. - On December 2, 2012 the collapse of the Sasago Tunnel in Japan killed 9 people and trapped many more when concrete paneling from the ceiling of the tunnel collapsed and ignited vehicles below. Preventing such tragedies may not be possible, but there are ways to prepare for them that enhances the safety of our citizens using tunnels. According to the US Fire Association the number one cause of death in a fire is smoke inhalation, not the actual flames. As was the case in the tunnel disasters stated above: inhaling toxic smoke was the leading cause of death. Knowing how to exit is key to surviving any fire and it’s no different in a tunnel. AAA.com has a safety checklist for what to do if in a tunnel emergency. In the event of a fire the checklist states that you should not try to extinguish a car fire unless it has just started, and if it is not possible to extinguish the fire to leave immediately through the nearest emergency exit. Photoluminescent markings provide a reliable and highly visible way to identify exits throughout a tunnel. Charged by the ambient light they’re always ready for service. That’s why you’ll find JALITE egress markers and safety signs light the way in many tunnels today. Such tunnels include: - The Hindhead Tunnel in London, England. - The Cross Harbor Tunnel in Hong Kong, China - The SeaTac Tunnel in Seattle, Washington - The Lincoln Tunnel in New York City, New York - And more!

Photoluminescent luminance decay

Photoluminescent luminance decay

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.
