The field of emergency lighting has been traditionally dominated by electrically powered signs for quite some time and has ventured into the realm of fire safety despite its prime function of operating in the case of power failure and not specifically of fire. However, it is fairly unknown that there exists a proven, cost effective alternative, that operates under all lighting conditions and especially in cases where normal and emergency lighting are not functioning. This alternative exists in the form of JALITE photoluminescent technology. This technology works by means of photoluminescent properties retaining any energy from any sources of ambient light. Upon cessation of the ambient light, the photoluminescent product emits the stored energy as highly visible light in the most sensitive region of detection of the human eye. Photoluminescent technology is a more sensible option simply because of its effectivness combined with the energy and maintenance cost savings which potentially exist for a variety of facilities. For example, JALITE UL924 designed exit signs can meet the international ISO and U.S. NFPA codes as well as the N.Y.C. building codes. Now if it's possible to economically provide emergency lighting Exit and directional signing to an entire high rise building at a significantly lower cost compared to the expenses electrical, emergency lighting would cost, why wouldn't you?

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.
Photoluminescent Exit Signs, Occupational Health Safety Signs, Fire Safety Signs and Escape path lighting Way Guidance Products. In 2006 in New York City, all tall commercial buildings have been required to be fitted with stairwell egress systems according to RS 6-1 under Local Law 26. The basics of this Code have now been included in ICC/IBC Code 2009 as Luminous escape path marking. JALITE has the products and experience to handle any project in this application as a pioneer, leader and key player in formulating the requirements for good practice solutions.
To maintain a safe work place, and comply with OSHA requirements, employers must provide the proper signs to indicate the exit route, and the safety equipment installed in their facility. For example Section 1910.37(b) which states: "Each exit must be clearly visible and marked by a sign reading 'Exit.' " or Section 1926.34(b): " 'Exit marking.' Exits shall be marked by a readily visible sign. Access to exits shall be marked by readily visible signs in all cases where the exit or way to reach it is not immediately visible to the occupants". Ask your local Jalite Distributor for our OSHA compliant EXIT sign to ensure your workplace is compliant, even if there is a loss of power! Best practice in response to risk assessment would demand a comprehensive array of directional signs meeting OSHA requirments to ensure that the means of escape is secured at all times. JALITE Photoluminescent products add that extra and essential feature of mitigating the risk of failure of emergency lighting or protecting occupied areas not requiring such provisions. Furthermore, they provide the means to provide directional information duplicated at low location providing escape path information economically and without the need for heavy costs of wiring and maintenance. OSHA regulations also require safety signs and notices to be used to reduce risk by reinforcing training and education, to provide warnings of risks in the workplace and protective measures, including the prohibition of behaviour likely to create a risk of any kind.
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.
