Power Outages Across the North East will Wreak Havoc on Emergency Lighting Systems

Power Outages Across the North East will Wreak Havoc on Emergency Lighting Systems

   Many emergency lights and Exit signs use a backup battery to perform under emergency conditions, however they have don’t have the ability to differentiate between a power outage due to a hurricane and a power outage due to an emergency such as a fire in the facility – they will revert to battery power until normal power conditions are restored. Unfortunately the wide spread loss of power due to the recent storm will reduce the service life of the batteries in the traditional electrical emergency lighting systems and increase the maintenance costs, using more of the limited resources of facilities across the North East. Fortunately some facilities have taken steps to proactively reduce maintenance costs, and will not have to replace batteries in their EXIT signs as they have installed non-electric photoluminescent EXIT signs from Jalite. These UL Listed EXIT Signs are compliant with NFPA Life Safety Code 101 and the IBC code, and require NO additional power where conditions permit. (See below)* Contact Jalite to find a distributor near you, and reduce maintenance costs in your facility. Or visit our new website exclusively devoted to our full range of UL Listed EXIT signs. *A minimum of 5 foot candles of fluorescent ambient light must be on the face of the sign when occupied.

Emergency Lighting Exit Signs

Emergency Lighting Exit Signs

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 Fire Safety Sign Survey

JALITE Fire Safety Sign Survey

The JALITE fire safety sign audit requires a close examination of the occupied area in order to assess that risks have been identified and mitigated with safety signs designed to good practice. Furthermore, that the fire safety signs are positioned appropriately and are clearly visible and understandable under the expected conditions of observation. A fire safety sign survey is an integral part of the required formal and legally enforceable fire risk assessment and can assist this process tremendously. For more information about the JALITE Fire Safety sign survey and how it forms a key part of Fire Safety Policy do not hesitate to ask for our free guides or contact our sponsored magazine and publications at www.means-of-escape.com It is also a requirement to ensure that all employees are given training and education to understand the safety signs displayed and to behave accordingly. JALITE produce a full range of training products to assist in this process.

The Costa Concordia: Lessons Learned

The Costa Concordia: Lessons Learned

It’s been over a year since the now infamous Costa Concordia ran aground and partially sunk; 32 people were killed and 64 injured. Since the Concordia, the cruise industry seems to have hit a rough patch. Most recently a fire onboard the Carnival Triumph stranded over 4,000 passengers and crew for 8 days with no power or running water. With all eyes now on the cruise ship industry, what can be taken away from recent disaster to make cruising easy and safe for everyone? The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has released strict guidelines to follow when evacuating a large passenger ship.  Once an alarm has been sounded, passengers are asked to go to the cabin and retrieve their lifejacket before making their way to the assembly station. From the assembly station, passengers are assigned lifeboat locations that they are to report to. The maximum time recommended for an evacuation in 80 minutes; this means on ships like the Triumph and the Concordia, it is recommended that the crew evacuate over 4,000 people in a little over an hour. When the goal is to get everyone evacuated as quickly as possible, conditions can become deadly when patrons attempting to escape the wreckage are lost and disoriented in the dark corridors of the ship. JALITE nbsp; is here to light the way for with our exceptional brightness and long lasting illumination no matter the circumstances.  Our new Life Safety Product Catalog features the latest in marine photoluminescent signs and products.
