Learn about safety
From the Headquarters in Basildon, Essex U.K. the JALITE Group now spans three continents and around the world through its group of dedicated independant distributors. You have choices in this world but not when it comes to adopting and using best practice for safety products. Meeting or exceeding standards in the field of photoluminescent safety products is what JALITE is all about. There is absolutely no need to go for second best.
There are 15,400 high rise fires each year in the US according to NFPA. What anyone who lives or works in a high rise must know is that the most important thing to do during a fire is to get out as soon as possible. Especially in a High Rise because of the longer egress times. That may seem obvious, but did you know that less than 50% of the survivors surveyed after the Sept. 11th attacks on the WTC reported that they evacuated immediately? For more information on the behavior of the survivors during their evacuation of the World Trade Center Towers, read the report by Guylene Proulx. In this report she mentions the use of photoluminescent markings which proved helpful in the evacuation: "Four survivors reported seeing photoluminescent stripes on the stairs, railings and stairwell doors – an improvement the Port Authority made following the 1993 bombing. As one survivor stated, “All you had to do was follow those yellow-green stripes. They were wonderful. The stripes were especially valuable when the emergency stairs stopped and people had to travel horizontally through mechanical equipment spaces that had many doors” (Masetti, 2001)." Whether it’s a traditional low rise building or a skyscraper, whether occupant leave immediately or wait, it is imperative that they be able to see their way out. Jalite photoluminescent egress signs will light the way out for any building. Contact us to find a distributor near you.
JALITE photoluminescent signs are in a Class of their own by design of the communicated message and remain conspicuous and recognizeable in darkness. JALITE safety signs provide the visible cues and direction information for speedy and orderly escape in an emergency and in power loss. JALITE photoluminescent safety signs form part of a comprehensive fire safety management strategy and fulfill both legislative conformance requirements and enhanced safety and reduced risk in many situations. JALITE is happy to work with all organisations with a high safety awareness and desire for improvement to develop a detailed safety signing policy consistent with embracing this technology and moving to an "above minimum safety' environment. The advances in luminance performance and in unique manufacturing techniques produce visual properties of JALITE UL 924 Exit Signs that offer an extremely viable option to electrical emergency Exit signs and are now also available to meet ISO Standard designs.
JALITE Group, through the pioneering work done by JALITE in the USA, has the most comprehensive range of products to meet retrofit and new build requirements for New York City Local Law 26, RS6-1 needs as well as the 2009 IBC/ICC Building Code Chapter 10 Section 1024 . Stairwell egress systems are expected to be required in all tall buildings throughout the world in the coming years as slow adoption takes place of International standards and Codes into Building Codes of local jurisdiction.
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.
Mandatory notices help in preventing fires and in the eventuality of a fire limits the spread of fire by instructing occupants, be it in onboard ship or onshore locations, of the mandatory requirements within a fire safety policy. These notices should be displayed prominently and can be used as part of formal fire safety education and training. Mandatory action safety signs cover the whole range of personal protection equipment used to instruct workers to protect themselves appropriately in the workplace.
