Fire Safety Management

Fire Safety Management

Fire Safety Management has 5 key focus areas with a sixth added "Contingency". 1. Prevention 2. Escape 3. Communication 4. Confinement 5. Suppression 6. Contingency JALITE Photoluminescent Fire Safety signs and safety way-guidance systems support and reinforce each of these strategy focus areas and is a key element of the specific communication strategy. The contingency around the total failure of any obligatory, regulation electrical emergency lighting has always created demand for photoluminescent way guidance systems as well as the need for low location assistance to egress. A formal safety sign and escape route survey is an essential part of any fire safety policy as well as featuring as an integral part of fire risk assessment.

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 !

Mass Transport Systems

Mass Transport Systems

JALITE pionneered the application of photoluminescent safety way guidance systems in mass transport railways with research carried out with London Underground in the early 90's. A full scale egress exercise with wayguidance lines on the wall and platform was made giving egress speeds typical of ordered evacuation even under complete power loss situation.

High visibility clothing

High visibility clothing

Most fire safety strategies called for responsible and appointed persons to act as stewards and shepheards during an emergency. These people are made conspicuous by wearing hi visibility clothing for ease of identification and indeed in case these people are unfortunate to be in need of assistance. Photoluminescent material adds to the other high visibility elements of flourescent colours and retroreflective to maximize the effectiveness under all conditions of search and rescue.

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.

Exit Signs

Exit Signs

EXIT comes from 16th Century Latin verb Exire (third person singular of the verb Exire Ex = out Ire = go) used first in the theatrical sense he/she/it goes out. The word EXIT itself has, through common use over the ages, become a "symbol" for the door leading out of an enclosed area. EXIT has however a much broader use and often defined more generally as the way out of a troublesome situation. The one thing for sure is that in an emergency it is the goal to find the way to one as soon as possible and to move confidently towards the final EXIT door. It has been incredible over the last 25 years the number of opinions that have been voiced about how this can be done efficiently and effectively in the built environment and indeed building consensus at International level was very hard to come to but eventually was produced in ISO 16069. ISO 16069 has become the basis for all work and efforts for the specification and design of safety way guidance systems and especially for the detailed explanation and standardisation of the use of Exit signs and escape route direction signs. JALITE Exit Signs have the highest credentials and are the only company to produce the fully accredited ISO 7010 Emergency Exit signs meeting the requirements of ULC924 and are fully Listed.
