Safety Signs

Component signs

BS ISO 3864-1:2011, specifies that a combination sign be used only to further improve comprehension of the sign. This is to ensure that occupants are left with more information rather than confusion. JALITE photoluminescent component signs provide occupants, trained personnel, visitors, and emergency services with additional information. JALITE photoluminescent component signs are letter and number characters signs that can be used alongside assembly points and firefighting equipment, such as fire alarm call points.

Where there are more than one assembly point or fire point, JALITE photoluminescent component signs are installed with existing signs, to help specify the number of the equipment. For example, an assembly point could be labelled ‘Assembly point 2’. During an emergency evacuation, JALITE photoluminescent component signs can ease the evacuating process by limiting confusion and congestion of the assembly point. Evacuees already assigned to assembly point 2, can quickly and easily proceed once this area is labelled. JALITE photoluminescent component signs are available in different sizes, to be affixed with existing JALITE signs.

VIEWING DISTANCE

The expected viewing distance of a safety sign is described according to the Z factor. The Z factor is the ratio of the viewing distance divided by the sign height (graphical symbol height plus geometric shape according to BS EN ISO 7010:2020 image) - Direct line of sight.
