At 8pm the evening of August 10, 1903 in Paris’ popular Couronnes underground subway passengers anxiously awaited to make their way home. Then an empty train that had caught fire made its way into the station. While at first thought to be under control, the fire soon grew and overwhelmed the stations. With the power cut and smoke quickly spreading, it claimed the lives of 84 people. While this is one of the earliest tunnel tragedies, it certainly wasn’t the last: - On November 18, 1987 31 people were killed when a similar fire broke out in the King’s Cross tube tunnels when they became disoriented and trapped by darkness and smoke. - On March 24, 1999 truck fire in the Mont Blanc Tunnel in the Alps killed 38 people who were trapped in the tunnel and unsure of what to do. - On December 2, 2012 the collapse of the Sasago Tunnel in Japan killed 9 people and trapped many more when concrete paneling from the ceiling of the tunnel collapsed and ignited vehicles below. Preventing such tragedies may not be possible, but there are ways to prepare for them that enhances the safety of our citizens using tunnels. According to the US Fire Association the number one cause of death in a fire is smoke inhalation, not the actual flames. As was the case in the tunnel disasters stated above: inhaling toxic smoke was the leading cause of death. Knowing how to exit is key to surviving any fire and it’s no different in a tunnel. AAA.com has a safety checklist for what to do if in a tunnel emergency. In the event of a fire the checklist states that you should not try to extinguish a car fire unless it has just started, and if it is not possible to extinguish the fire to leave immediately through the nearest emergency exit. Photoluminescent markings provide a reliable and highly visible way to identify exits throughout a tunnel. Charged by the ambient light they’re always ready for service. That’s why you’ll find JALITE egress markers and safety signs light the way in many tunnels today. Such tunnels include: - The Hindhead Tunnel in London, England. - The Cross Harbor Tunnel in Hong Kong, China - The SeaTac Tunnel in Seattle, Washington - The Lincoln Tunnel in New York City, New York - And more!
JALITE photoluminescent products and materials have been designed, manufactured and supplied as the core products of its extensive range of safety signs and related risk reduction products since the early 1970s. JALITE Group manufacture photoluminescent fire, health and safety, means of escape safety signs and safety wayguidance system components as well as other photoluminescent products for safety applications worldwide. Safety signs are produced to the International Language of Safety Signs ISO EN 7010 and in many languages of the world. Other photoluminescent products include paints, marker tapes, photoline matting and high visibility clothing. Specialist signs are manufactured for marine and offshore applications.
The arrival of new pigments in the 1990's has led to exciting developments for our industry. These new pigments based on alkali earth aluminates doped with rare earth elements have produced the tools for JALITE to design and produce a full range of products to meet all means of escape needs. This New and advanced technology has allowed JALITE to introduce JLUME photoluminescent materials that produce exceptionally long luminance decay characteristics compared to standard photoluminescent materials. These materials are suitable for high risk areas where egress may be slow or where light levels are lower. JLUME Plus is now well progressing and JALITE will be pushing Standards further for Class E materials in 2006 and for future F and G classes as technology and economics improve. JALITE uses its own proprietary technology for pigments and is fully licensed to use patented technology in the field. Users of high performance photoluminescent materials should assure themselves that any suppliers can produce evidence that they are not infringing current patents, as the application in safety products is also claimed in current patents.
The Publication of research findings from the first real evacuations on stairwells by the late Dr Guylene Proulx was a milestone in the development of photoluminescent safety way guidance systems. With the research carried out in the UK at the Building Reseach Establishment, under the leadership of Dr Gerry Webber the basis for standards such as BS 5266 - 6 and then ISO 16069 Safety Way guidance systems was given. JALITE has actively and continually supported research in the field and is absolutely committed to support claims of benefits of photoluminescent safety products with hard data.
ISO 7010 - 2011 is a milestone Standard for graphical symbol based safety communications. JALITE is totally commited to the best practice model of using consensus National and International Standards with the highest credentials for its products and has worked now in ISO Technical Committees and working Groups for nearly 20 years to be at the forefront of this process. JALITE safety sign products that conform to ISO 7010 - 2011 can be seen on all the group companies web sites and can be searched on the search function on this site by the unique ISO registration codes. www.jalite.com www.jaliteaaa.co.uk www.photoluminescent-signs.com www.jalitemarine.com
