Se debe estimular lumínicamente con luz ambiental baja y debe tener una respuesta lumínica mínima de densidad fotoluminiscente superior a 560mcd/m2 a los 10 min. y una atenuación superior a 5.700 min., medidos según Norma UNE 23035/03.

In July of 2009, a fire broke out on the 9th floor of a 14-storey residency by the south of London. The fire quickly spread to the 11th floor where it took the lives of six residents. Weeks before the fire one of the victims had asked why there were no diagrams in the building to show where the emergency exits were. Those who perished in the fire had remained in their flat, but those who did escape the blaze described the scene as being “chaotic” and said that the maze-like layout of the building made evacuation extremely difficult. Why weren’t evacuation plans installed within the large, 14-storey building? An inquiry into the answer of that question began on January 14, 2013. The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) released an article on their site that describes how to stay safe if you are in a tall building. The number one tip? Know the plan. The article says, “Make sure that you're familiar with your building's evacuation plan, which should illustrate what residents are supposed to do in the event of an emergency.” These all important diagrams were unfortunately absent from too many tragedies. Ensure that the occupants and staff in your facility stay safe and “know the plan.” Contact JALITE today to find out how you can install photoluminescent evacuation plans to identify the way out in both a light and dark emergency. With JALITE evacuation plans you can rest assured that - When the lights go out, ours go on™.
Prohibition fire safety signs are used to enforce control risk measures by identifying specific forbidden behaviour to reinforce and complement formal training. Of course, in fire safety management as well as under Health and Safety regulations in the work place it is essential to prohibit and restrict behaviour that can create a fire risk or a risk of injury. JALITE photoluminescent signs are very conspicuous in all lighting conditions and attract attention hence adding to their effectiveness. JALITE signing provided immediate, visible proof to employees and inspectors of the seriousness of the safety policy and practices in an enterprise.
Fire safety is rarely on the forefront of our minds. In our everyday lives, fire tragedies are things that happen to other people on the evening news. The truth is that 2,640 people died and 15,635 were injured in 484,500 fires in 2011, in the US alone. Fires are not a rarity; in the US there was a structure fire reported every minute in 2011. So, what can you do to help yourself, people you care about, employees, customers, and first responders? It’s simple. Clearly identify your emergency exits and ensure that they are accessible. Blocked emergency exits are a major problem all around the world; infamous events like Coconut Grove fire, the Station Night club, and now the Kiss Nightclub fire in Brazil. Others are well known because so many people were killed when their emergency exits were blocked. But others exist, just as tragic but less well known because there were fewer fatalities. Tragedies like this one can be prevented. Rick Ornberg, author and former firefighter, recently wrote an article on his blog about the importance of keeping emergency exits clear. “National fire codes are full of life-safety related requirements that were written following one of several major tragedies in the workplace, in schools and in places of public assembly. Many of those were written after incidents where piles of burned corpses were found stacked against a locked or blocked exit.” Ornberg wrote, in response to seeing several emergency exits blocked in local restaurants and businesses. One needs only to search blocked exits to see the truth in Ornber’s words; Wikipedia has an entire section dedicated to tragedies caused by blocked exits. If you see an exit being blocked at your workplace or where you eat and shop, will you do yourself and those around the service of mentioning it to someone in charge? If your place of work routinely has an exit blocked installing the appropriate sign is the least you can do to assist in keeping your facility and its occupants safe.

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.
