Luminous Egress Path Marking

Luminous Egress Path Marking

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.

Self-Luminous Exit Signs: The Difference between Tritium and Photoluminescent Technologies

Self-Luminous Exit Signs: The Difference between Tritium and Photoluminescent Technologies

Self-luminous signs provide an alternative to the traditional electrical exit sign, but what are the options with self-luminous signs? One option is to use a Tritium exit sign, which is illuminated by a radioactive isotope of helium gas known as Tritium. The Tritium emits light for anywhere between 10 to 20 years as it decays. In order to have Tritium signs, it is required that the consumer have a “general license” that allows the radioactive material to be traced to them in the event that it is mishandled. They must also report all their signs to the NRC to ensure they are being properly disposed of; a process which can cost companies $100 or more per sign. In 2009, Wal Mart reported 15,000 of their 70,000 Tritium signs as missing, raising concerns that the signs may have been improperly disposed of and risked contaminating the environment and drinking water of surrounding neighborhoods. Wal Mart has since stopped all purchase of Tritium signs and has moved on to using photoluminescent exit sign where applicable. While Tritium exit signs are a viable non-electrical alternative to mark your exits, the risk associated with their radioactivity in your facility, their regulatory compliance requirements, and the cost of disposal makes them a difficult option to choose.  For more information about another non-electrical option to identify your exits contact us, or visit our website exclusively devoted to photoluminescent UL Listed Exit signs.

Luminance according to DIN 67510

Luminance according to DIN 67510

According to DIN 67510 the luminance at 10 minutes decay time and at 60 minutes decay time are used to form a brief description of the luminance decay performance. Hence we have as follows these notations for the classifications of PSPA and ISO 17398 Luminance Classifications and DIN 67510 notation Class A    23/3 Class B    50/7 Class C   140/20 Class D   260/35 JALITE additions Class E 400/55 Class F 520/70 Class G 650/80

Photoluminescent Self Adhesive Tape

Photoluminescent Self Adhesive Tape

Jalite AAA photoluminescent tapes are like no other, engineered with the highest initial luminance in its class, it gives occupants the most light when they need it - during the first minutes of a power outage. Jalite AAA tapes luminance also last an extraordinarily long time, even with a minimal charge or exposure to the background lighting! Jalite photoluminescent tapes have been provided with an exceptionally versatile and strong adhesive for good service on walls and handrails and various surfaces. JALITE Phtoluminescent Tapes were the first tapes full accredited for LLL according to ISO 15370 and approved by the Japanese Ministry of Transport. They were also the first tapes approved by the New York Building Divisions Material and Equipment Acceptance for stairwell egress systems. Unlike many materials used in New York City, JALITE tapes were shown to perform extremely well in all installed locations as required around obstacles and on handrails.

Stairway and Floor numbering signage

Stairway and Floor numbering signage

To compliment egress path marking on walls, floors and steps, floor numbering, stair case identification and orientation signs are essential for smooth ordered and planned evacuation. It is just common sense to make it perfectly clear where people are and where they need to go in an emergency. If you are looking for a complete plan of orientation and stairway management and require a personalised service including instruction for cross over floors and escap path instruction do not hesitate to contact us at sales@jalite.com your problem will be solved !
