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.

JALITE Nosing for Stair Leading Edge

JALITE Nosing for Stair Leading Edge

JALITE nosing for the leading edge of the stair fulfill OSHA Requirement for stairs as well as providing the key element for stairwell egress path marking under IBC/IFC code: 1910.24(f) "Stair treads." All treads shall be reasonably slip-resistant and the nosings shall be of nonslip finish. Welded bar grating treads without nosings are acceptable providing the leading edge can be readily identified by personnel descending the stairway and provided the tread is serrated or is of definite nonslip design. Rise height and tread width shall be uniform throughout any flight of stairs including any foundation structure used as one or more treads of the stairs. To fulfill its responsibility to provide a safe workplace, OSHA requires that stair treads be reasonably slip-resistant and that in particular the stair nosing have a slip resistant finish. In addition the leading edge of each step should be readily identified by someone descending the stairwell. JALITE stair nosing and thresholds not only provide a slip resistant finish but are highly visible under normal conditions and power loss conditions, ensuring  that your facility does not just comply, but exceeds the OSHA requirements.

IBC/ICC Code 2009 Section 1024

IBC/ICC Code 2009 Section 1024

All the new tall buildings for commercial and industrial use in Seattle and major cities of Washington State USA will soon benefit from the same systems installed in New York City some 6 years ago. Washington State adopted Section 1024 of the revised IBC Building Code of 2009 to which all new buildings must comply within 2012. Of course, all existing buildings would clearly benefit from adopting the new code irrespective of any electrical systems installed and many forward thinking, "above minimum requirement" property owners will be considering improving their buildings for enhanced tenant safety.

Are Nightclubs Safe?: The 10th Anniversary of the Station Nightclub Fire

Are Nightclubs Safe?: The 10th Anniversary of the Station Nightclub Fire

Bars and nightclubs all around the world are under close scrutiny after a fire broke out in Brazil’s Kiss Nightclub, killing over 230 people. The fire, which was started by pyrotechnics set off by a band performing at the club, bared an eerie resemblance to the now infamous nightclub fire that occurred just 10 years ago. On February 20th, 2003 a rock and roll themed club in West Warwick, Rhode Island called Station Nightclub was hosting the band Great White when the band's manager set off pyrotechnics. Although the band had set off these pyrotechnics inside of other venues, the Station’s low and flammable ceiling was quickly set ablaze by a spark that quickly engulfed the nightclub and everyone inside. 100 people lost their lives in the fire, with many more seriously injured. With Kiss Nightclub fire last month and the 10th anniversary of the Station Nightclub fire this week, can we really say that nightclubs have become safer in the last ten years? While many sites offer helpful tips for patrons, such as the NFPA which urges club-goers to check for exits and be aware of their surroundings, owners and employees also need to be aware of imminent danger. Bouncer Online offers 8 tips for owners and employees to ensure that everyone has a safe evening. Their tips include making sure that the club is not over crowded and checking that all emergency exits are clearly labeled and easily accessible; two safety violations that experts say most commonly lead to a high death toll in theses nightclub tragedies. Ensure your nightclub clients are keeping the customers in your community safe, provide them with Jalite Safety signs such as our UL Listed EXIT Sign, and door hardware signs. When the lights go out, ours go on.™ Way-guidance floor signs and notices to Keep Exits Clear are also to be advised. All will shine up so nicely with Night club blue lights!!

Photoluminescent Exit Signs

Photoluminescent Exit Signs

Many people think that photoluminescent safety signs are only for marking the Exit door on escape paths, however they provide complete direction information along the escape path at high and low locations and alongside way guidance lines provide a complete safety way guidance system. Such systems have been installed in very high profile areas such as all of New York tall buildings, in the Pentagon and other sensitive areas where disaster preparedness has unfortunately become essential.Furthermore, they are used in millions of other smaller but also critical means of escape throughout the world. Time and time again, in fire and major disasters, the use of photoluminescent systems, completely independant of power sources other than the normal lighting, are proven to be effective to aid evacuation and saves lives. Under any type of formal fire risk assessment the requirement for photoluminescent Exit signs and Exit direction signs is immediately identifiable for most all the built environments and structures.
