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.
Luminous Egress Path Marking will significantly improve the means of egress provisions in tall buildings and be of great assistance to evacuees in case of emergency or power loss. The non -electrical safety wayguidance system basis from ISO 16069 is still the technical base and root for the luminous egress path system and JALITE has been at the forfront of all these developments. JALITE products are installed in the vast majority of the tall buildings in New York City and performance over the last 6 years since installation has been second to none. Jalite is the obvious choice for building owners and facilty managers requiring to meet IBC/ICC Code 2009 Section 1024.

When the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig in the Gulf of Mexico exploded the spilling 4.9 million barrels of oil into the sea, which made the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history, was well reported. However there is another side to this tragedy that is rarely addressed; on board the Horizon at the time of the explosion were 126 people, 11 of whom would never make it back to shore. What can be taken away from this tragedy in order to improve the safety of offshore platforms? The U.S. Minerals Management Service reported 69 offshore deaths, 1,349 injuries, and 858 fires and explosions on offshore rigs in the Gulf of Mexico from 2001 to 2010. After the explosion on the Horizon, many on board were able to evacuate before the rig collapsed; however the explosion had cut off all the power and the thick smoke plunged the rig into darkness. Workers, many of whom were new to the Horizon, were unfamiliar with the layout forced to waste precious time stumbling through the darkness towards the lifeboats. Many simply leaped into the water from the nearest balcony rather than be burned alive. When the last life boat launched, 11 men were unaccounted for and declared dead on April 23, 2010. In a fire, whether it is on land or at sea, life safety is the highest priority. The best designs enable occupants to find the path to safety as quickly as possible under various conditions. Make sure your clients are aware of JALITE photoluminescent safety products; with Lloyds Type approval and Marine Equipment Directive certification, they can be confident that JALITE will lead the way to safety.

IMO Signs and Fire Control Plan (FCS) Signs are a requirement by all jurisdictions to meet SOLAS and Fire Protection regulations on board ship and marine structures.

More details are available on the dedicated web sites www.jalite-marine.com www.jalitemarine.com or simply search our data base for product.
The Brightness Rating of a photoluminescent product is the statement of the luminance decay properties after illumination with 2 ft candles of white (4000-4500oK) fluorescent lights for 2 hours. The statement is the luminance after 10 minutes, 60 minutes and 90 minutes after activation. The minimum requirement for New York City stairwell egress systems is MEA BR 30-7-5. Brightness Rating BR is noted on all components of systems approved by the New York Building Division Material Evaluation and Acceptance Department for use in High Rise Egress Path Marking Systems to be used to meet Local Law 26 RS6-1 of New York City. JALITE AAA and JLUME materials were used by the New York City Building Division as basic calibration materials for independant testing laboratory approval and were the first materials approved for this application. Many more details are available from JALITE Technical Service to provide clear understanding about expected performance under all types of illumination conditions. Needless to say with JALITE competence and experience in this field sytems can be produced to satisfy all requirements. It is fundamental however to note that ALL photoluminescent systems require illumination in order to function. Adequate illumination of the best type possible will provide always the necessary and best possible results.
