Tunnel safety and evacuation route markings have received much needed attention since a series of tragedies in Europe and elsewhere heightened the need for escape route lighting and improved wayfinding signs.

Quality in Photoluminescence

Quality in Photoluminescence

"JALITE Group is committed to a never ending process of continuous improvement to meet and exceed client needs and expectations" "JALITE Authorised Distributors share the quality philosophy to deliver product, installation and maintenance services to meet client requirements" JALITE has adopted Total Quality as a prime operating principle governing the exchanges of products and services both externally and internally within the enterprise. Performance against quality standards is continually monitored and deviations and defects studied for assignable causes. JALITE leads in performance testing and characterisation of photoluminescence and photoluminescent decay under normal installed lighting. Statistical Process control on key product attributes such as luminance decay characteristics is an essential element of conforming to the JALITE specifications. “Quality is free, but is the fruit of knowledge, experience, hard work, process and organisation” "Jalite Group can show you full traceability for all our products back to the 80’s and test data on performance testing – who else can?” "The photoluminescence and luminance decay characteristics and classification according to ISO 17398 of any photoluminescent safety product must be part of any product specification and controlled by the manufacturer”

Distance factor Z for safety signs

Distance factor Z for safety signs

Many factors will influence the distance factor Z of a safety sign which is expressed as the ratio of the observation distance D and the size of the symbol or text d as follows : Z = D/d   the Z factor ( distance factor Z) is not the same for all graphical symbols the Z factor is influenced by the luminance of the sign (brightness appearance) the Z factor is influence by the luminance contrast between the symbol elements or text and the background the Z factor is influenced by the visual acuity of the audience the Z factor is influenced by the level of familiarity that the audience has with the symbol or text The revision of ISO 3864-1 should provide good guidance for the Exit sign of ISO 7010. UL924 legibility testing for Exit signs provides excellent data for the Z factor of photoluminescent signs of this quality illuminated with only 50 lux of ambient lighting after 90 minutes in complete darkness, It must be remembered that Z factor is always determined when the sign is observed "head on". For a sign to be legible and recognizeable it must of course be detected in the field of view within peripheral vision. Sign size is of course essential to making a sign conspicuous as is luminance and luminous contrast with the surroundings. However, it is essential the sign be mounted in a position facing the observer so that it can be clearly detected. The sign should also be positioned in the correct context to function effectively. Useful guidance is obtainable from JALITE and JALITE Authorised distributors which distinguishes professionals from printers.

JALITE Fire Safety Sign Survey

JALITE Fire Safety Sign Survey

The JALITE fire safety sign audit requires a close examination of the occupied area in order to assess that risks have been identified and mitigated with safety signs designed to good practice. Furthermore, that the fire safety signs are positioned appropriately and are clearly visible and understandable under the expected conditions of observation. A fire safety sign survey is an integral part of the required formal and legally enforceable fire risk assessment and can assist this process tremendously. For more information about the JALITE Fire Safety sign survey and how it forms a key part of Fire Safety Policy do not hesitate to ask for our free guides or contact our sponsored magazine and publications at www.means-of-escape.com It is also a requirement to ensure that all employees are given training and education to understand the safety signs displayed and to behave accordingly. JALITE produce a full range of training products to assist in this process.
