Code of practice for escape route signing
JALITE Group has its origins in Switzerland in the late 1970's.The first Trade Mark application for JALITE was the Swiss registration in 1981 with an International Mark filed under the Madrid Convention at the same time. The JALITE name was established throughout the world in the 1980's and became synonymous for photoluminescent materials and products specifically designed and manufactured for life safety applications. Since these early days, the world has experienced a series of very serious tragedies that have continued to reinforce the need for non-electrical escape route lighting and guidance systems at low location. These systems have to be completely autonomous and independent of traditional electrical emergency lighting systems. Furthermore, these systems are located in close proximity to evacees at floor or low level and are reinforced by the more normal high mounted signs and direction indicating elements used for normal occupancy of the building. JALITE Group has continued to grow progressively from its origins in Switzerland to now offer its product internationally from regional offices on three continents and manufacturing in both Europe and Asia to an ever increasing number of third party distributors serving local market needs and applications.. JALITE PLC in Basildon, Essex, United Kingdom is the Head Quarters of JALITE Group and since its creation in 1983 has been at the forefront of the development of applications in the many and diverse areas of risk reduction using photoluminescence. JALITE Products are sold via a network of Authorised Distributors. The JALITE Authorised Distributors work within specific geographical and application markets.

JALITE products are all systematically tested for photoluminescent luminance decay properties according to the test procedures given in BS ISO 17398 and BS ISO 16069. These methods all relate back to the original milestone German Standard DIN 67510 Part 1. JALITE as founder member of the Photoluminescent Safety Products Association was involved heavily in setting the industry classification system which was formally adopted in the above ISO Standards. With recent developments in Codes and Standards for Photoluminescent Safety Products and in line with the recognized industry development it is now considered necessary to extend the PSPA material classification systems as follows: Luminance Classes ISO 17398 and PSPA proposals Classification/Luminance mcd/m2 2 mins 10 mins 30 mins 60 mins Class A 108 23 7 3 Class B 210 50 15 7 Class C 690 140 45 20 Class D 1100 260 85 35 Class E 1800 400 120 55 Class F 2300 520 155 70 Class G 3000 650 190 80 The capability now to extend the luminance decay properties to close to 30 times the performance of the old industry base standard is remarkable and opens the door to improved escape route lighting applications and the eventual replacement of electrical escape route lighting. For more technical details and luminance properties under different light sources and illumination conditions please e-mail or contact us.
To maintain a safe work place, and comply with OSHA requirements, employers must provide the proper signs to indicate the exit route, and the safety equipment installed in their facility. For example Section 1910.37(b) which states: "Each exit must be clearly visible and marked by a sign reading 'Exit.' " or Section 1926.34(b): " 'Exit marking.' Exits shall be marked by a readily visible sign. Access to exits shall be marked by readily visible signs in all cases where the exit or way to reach it is not immediately visible to the occupants". Ask your local Jalite Distributor for our OSHA compliant EXIT sign to ensure your workplace is compliant, even if there is a loss of power! Best practice in response to risk assessment would demand a comprehensive array of directional signs meeting OSHA requirments to ensure that the means of escape is secured at all times. JALITE Photoluminescent products add that extra and essential feature of mitigating the risk of failure of emergency lighting or protecting occupied areas not requiring such provisions. Furthermore, they provide the means to provide directional information duplicated at low location providing escape path information economically and without the need for heavy costs of wiring and maintenance. OSHA regulations also require safety signs and notices to be used to reduce risk by reinforcing training and education, to provide warnings of risks in the workplace and protective measures, including the prohibition of behaviour likely to create a risk of any kind.
