JALITE signs and markings made some 30 years ago are still functioning well in the mountains and civil defense bunkers of Switzerland. Now we celebrate 20 years of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the world is still as insecure as ever. The Swiss heritage for JALITE stands well for security and safety and never ending technological progress. Today's JALITE photoluminescent signs and marking are some 80 to 100 times brighter than the products still functioning well in the bunkers deep in the mountains of Switzerland and are now used to protect people in tall buildings and the means of escape everywhere. JALITE photoluminescent signs are principally produced in the JALITE AAA and SB flagship qualities showing unique quick charging and optical brightness under normal lighting conditions in the built environment.
Safety Signs and Symbols Since the early 1970's, National and International Standards bodies have been working to provide best practice in the design of graphical symbol safety signs. The ultimate goal is to communicate effectively with safety signs and symbols that are independent of language. With base work being done in the 1990's on the process of standardization and coordination of efforts from all over the world, the keystone International Standard ISO 7010 was born. ISO 7010 -2011 has now completed a further revision to cover the vast majority of safety signs and symbols common to the workplace. Many more are in the process of standardisation covering more specialised fields and to provide essential accreditation to the best practice available for all the presently standardised safety signs from many other ISO sources and the world. JALITE has participated in this process now for more than 20 years and offers the ultimate service of design and conformance to best practice standards. It is expected that ISO 7010 will be adopted as the National Standard by many countries and has now become the European Standard as ISO EN 7010.

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 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.
JALITE is associated with a number of companies that offer professional and thorough risk assessment advice and guidance and in particular are capable of carrying out a fire safety sign survey according to Standards and good practice.

A number of new ISO Signs and Symbol Standards have been published in the last year or are under revision and elaboration. The full series of ISO 3864 (parts 1 3 and 4) design principles are in the final stages of revision. ISO 24409 -1 for the design of shipboard safety signs has been published and ISO 24409-2 is progressing for the catalogue of shipboard safety signs many of which will be included in ISO 7010. All these standards are now impacting the safety sign and photoluminescent business. They cover design of safety signs, colour and photometric properties of safety signs, marine and offshore safety signs, water safety signs and escape and evacuation plans. JALITE has participated in the elaboration of all these Standards and if you want to find out what is going on just mail us.
