Learn about safety
Warning sign in fire safety is for the identification of hazards on and adjacent to the Means of Escape: These JALITE signs will help to identify hazards such as trip hazards, flammable and hazardous substances and electrical hazards on and near the means of escape route. It is particularly important that these hazards are identified to protect anyone using these routes including any fire fighters that may be on the premises. All JALITE photoluminescent safety signs provide extra visible cues in and adjacent to escape routes and help orientation in an emergency. They are a key element of education and training and being conspicuous in both the light and dark surroundings are a key reminder of safety. Each JALITE sign in the work or public environment is a beacon of light in power failure and an immediate, visible sign of an active safety policy.
Fires or accidents in tunnels can be a major risk to human life and the effective identification of escape routes is paramount. Limited escape facilities and difficulties encountered by emergency services in gaining access to tunnel incidents calls for considered fire and emergency safety management. Tunnels and underground transport facilities are growing in terms of popularity and size in order to reduce rising traffic densities and congestion. As tunnel design evolves we need to identify the many hazards to be addressed: Increase in length of modern tunnels, unfamiliar territory - egress disorientation Transportation of hazardous materials - potential of contamination Higher fire loads due to growing increase in traffic volume coupled with higher load capacities – increasing fire risk Mechanical defects in motor vehicles – sources of ignition. Potential deterioration and failure/smoke logging of traditional escape route systems. Vehicle breakdown, road traffic accidents with inherently disorientated vehicle occupants. Fires within tunnels present an extremely high risk to occupants, the below table lists some of the international tragedies from recent years. The numbers highlight the horrific consequences of tunnel fire.

The serious outcome and risks associated with tunnel fires, emergency escape route systems are of the utmost importance in relation to life safety. With this in mind Jalite have developed an outstanding product raange for tunnels - engineered for life safety! Owing to the stringent requirements on constructional materials for use within tunnels, many of the common materials used in the photoluminescent industry are deemed unsuitable due to non compliance to the low smoke zero halogen requirements (LSZH). Jalite have strived to overcome the material restrictions and risen to the challenge meeting and exceeding requirements with the all new Jalite 316 LLL System and Jalite Polycarbonate Photoluminescent Escape Route Signs designed specifically for tunnels.
