Safety plans (signs)

Since the conception of Fire Safety Management and disaster preparedness, the availability of fire safety plan signs to communicate key safety information to occupants and evacuees has been essential. This includes occupants of buildings, ships, and offshore platforms. JALITE photoluminescent fire safety plan signs are designed according to the principles in BS ISO 23601:2020, for the fire safety, escape, evacuation, and escape of occupants.

JALITE photoluminescent fire safety plan signs are designed according to the layout of the facility. These safety plans are placed throughout each area, on each floor, to indicate the location of the current user of the safety plan, as well as escape routes and fire alarm zones. This is essential during an emergency evacuation, especially for visitors who may be unfamiliar with the layout of the facility and may find it difficult to escape otherwise.

JALITE photoluminescent safety plans are designed with graphical symbols in BS EN ISO 7010:2020 showing the location of emergency and firefighting equipment. Occupants will be assured of their current position in the building, ships, or offshore platform, in all lighting conditions after the installation of JALITE photoluminescent fire safety plans. In this way JALITE photoluminescent safety plans are a key component to overall safety way guidance systems, enabling evacuees to escape to a place of safety.

All JALITE photoluminescent fire safety plans are always designed according to your existing emergency evacuation procedures.

Quick overview


BS ISO 17398:2004 - Safety colours and safety signs. Classification performance and durability of signs.

This International Standard specifies requirements for a performance-related classification system for safety signs according to expected service environment, principal materials, photometric properties, means of illumination, fixing methods and surface. Performance criteria and test methods are specified in this International Standard so that properties related to durability and expected service life can be characterized and specified at the time of the product’s delivery to the purchaser.

DIN 67 510 Part 1: 2020 - Phosphorescent pigments and products - measurement and marking at the producer.

This standard applies to the measurement and classification by the manufacturer of phosphorescent pigments and the phosphorescent products made from them, for example for marking escape routes and hazards, in buildings, underground thoroughfares, on aircraft and ships, for marking equipment, fittings, utensils, working clothing and safety clothing. This standard specifies a series of conditions for testing the change in luminance over time and for identifying the tested phosphorescent products.

BS ISO 3864-1:2011 - Graphical symbols - Safety colours and safety signs - Part 1: Design principles for safety signs and safety markings.

This part of ISO 3864 establishes the safety identification colours and design principles for safety signs and safety markings to be used in workplaces and in public areas for the purpose of accident prevention, fire protection, health hazard information and emergency evacuation. It also establishes the basic principles to be applied when developing standards containing safety signs.

BS ISO 3864-4:2011 - Graphical symbols - Safety colours and safety signs - Part 4: Colorimetric and photometric properties of safety sign materials.

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.

BS ISO 16069:2017 - Graphical symbols - Safety signs- Safety way guidance systems (SWGS).

This document describes the principles governing the design and application of visual components used to create a safety way guidance system (SWGS). This document contains general principles valid both for electrically powered and for phosphorescent components. Special information which is related to the type of component is given to assist in defining the environment of use, choice of material, layout, installation and maintenance of SWGS.

BS EN ISO 7010:2020 - Graphical symbols - Safety colours and safety signs - Registered safety signs.

BS EN ISO 7010 ensures the appearance of safety signs is consistent and the meaning clear wherever safety signs related to people are needed. The shape and colour of each safety sign conforms to the design principles in ISO 3864-1 and the design of the graphical symbols conforms to the design principles in ISO 3864-3. These safety signs are intended for use only where there is a risk to people. They may appear in workplaces and public areas, safety manuals and notices, product labelling and escape and evacuation plans as appropriate.

BS ISO 23601:2020 - Safety Identification - Escape and evacuation plan signs.

This document establishes design principles for displayed escape plans that contain information relevant to fire safety, escape, evacuation and rescue of the facility's occupants. These plans may also be used by intervention forces in case of emergency. These plans are intended to be displayed as signs in public areas and workplaces.

BS ISO 15370: 2021 - Ships and marine technology. Low-location lighting (LLL) on passenger ships - Arrangement.

This document specifies the requirements for the approval, installation and maintenance of low-location lighting systems as defined in Chapter II‑2, Regulation of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974 (SOLAS 74), as amended in 2000, and detailed in Chapter 11 of the International Code for Fire Safety Systems (FSS Code).
