JALITE in China

JALITE in China

JALITE has been present in China for over 8 years now and China is of critical strategic importance to the photoluminescent business world wide since it holds 95% of the world's known reserves of the rare earth elements required for the new high performance phosphors. These phosphors are essential for today's escape route lighting applications and UL924 Listed emergency lighting EXIT signs. Mainland China is now one of the world's leading consumers of photoluminescent safety products where safety way-guidance systems are common in public infrastructure such as subways, exhibition venues and airports. Road signs and building identification signs are also produced in retroreflecive and photoluminecent materials. JALITE high performance products and comprehensive range of aluminium signs and way-guidance markers are produced with the highest quality and productivity possible in our China manufacturing faciility.

JALITE Photoluminescent Vinyl

JALITE Photoluminescent Vinyl

JALITE Photoluminescent Vinyl is a complex four part laminated material purpose designed for durable safety markings, signs and tapes. The afterglow, luminace decay characteristics are very closely controlled and uniform and homogenous across the whole surface. The vinyl is extremely high strength and stable. The lamination is in the bulk and is not soft and easy to delaminate as polyester tapes. The adhesive is an excellent high bond strength permanant adhesive to ensure good service for wall signs and hand rail tapes. JALITE produces products that can meet Standards and specifications.

JALITE Nosing for Stair Leading Edge

JALITE Nosing for Stair Leading Edge

JALITE nosing for the leading edge of the stair fulfill OSHA Requirement for stairs as well as providing the key element for stairwell egress path marking under IBC/IFC code: 1910.24(f) "Stair treads." All treads shall be reasonably slip-resistant and the nosings shall be of nonslip finish. Welded bar grating treads without nosings are acceptable providing the leading edge can be readily identified by personnel descending the stairway and provided the tread is serrated or is of definite nonslip design. Rise height and tread width shall be uniform throughout any flight of stairs including any foundation structure used as one or more treads of the stairs. To fulfill its responsibility to provide a safe workplace, OSHA requires that stair treads be reasonably slip-resistant and that in particular the stair nosing have a slip resistant finish. In addition the leading edge of each step should be readily identified by someone descending the stairwell. JALITE stair nosing and thresholds not only provide a slip resistant finish but are highly visible under normal conditions and power loss conditions, ensuring  that your facility does not just comply, but exceeds the OSHA requirements.

ISO 3864-4 Safety Sign Colours and photometric properties

ISO 3864-4 Safety Sign Colours and photometric properties

  This part of ISO 3864 establishes the colorimetric and photometric requirements and test methods for the colours of safety signs to be used in workplaces and public areas. It provides the colorimetric and photometric specifications for the named safety and contrast colours prescribed in ISO 3864-1. The physical requirements that safety signs have to meet are primarily related to daytime colour and normally lit environments. This part of ISO 3864 also includes the colorimetric requirements and test methods for safety signs and phosphorescent material which also operate in unlit environments. This part of ISO 3864 is applicable to all locations where safety issues related to people need to be addressed. However, it is not applicable to signalling used for guiding rail, road, river, maritime and air traffic and, generally speaking, to those sectors subject to a regulation that may differ. The colorimetric and photometric properties of retroreflective safety signs, retroreflective materials combined with fluorescent or phosphorescent materials, or luminous safety signs activated by a radioactive source are not specified in this part of ISO 3864. To measure the colour of photoluminescent materials in the dark condition a luminance value in the saturated condition requires minimum luminance values. JALITE materials fully satisfy these requirments as required also for ISO 15370 Low Location Lighting Arrangement for ships.
