Luminance according to DIN 67510

Luminance according to DIN 67510

According to DIN 67510 the luminance at 10 minutes decay time and at 60 minutes decay time are used to form a brief description of the luminance decay performance. Hence we have as follows these notations for the classifications of PSPA and ISO 17398 Luminance Classifications and DIN 67510 notation Class A    23/3 Class B    50/7 Class C   140/20 Class D   260/35 JALITE additions Class E 400/55 Class F 520/70 Class G 650/80

Stay Safe in a Tall Building, Know the Plan

Stay Safe in a Tall Building, Know the Plan

In July of 2009, a fire broke out on the 9th floor of a 14-storey residency by the south of London. The fire quickly spread to the 11th floor where it took the lives of six residents. Weeks before the fire one of the victims had asked why there were no diagrams in the building to show where the emergency exits were. Those who perished in the fire had remained in their flat, but those who did escape the blaze described the scene as being “chaotic” and said that the maze-like layout of the building made evacuation extremely difficult. Why weren’t evacuation plans installed within the large, 14-storey building? An inquiry into the answer of that question began on January 14, 2013.   The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) released an article on their site that describes how to stay safe if you are in a tall building. The number one tip? Know the plan. The article says, “Make sure that you're familiar with your building's evacuation plan, which should illustrate what residents are supposed to do in the event of an emergency.” These all important diagrams were unfortunately absent from too many tragedies. Ensure that the occupants and staff in your facility stay safe and “know the plan.” Contact JALITE today to find out how you can install photoluminescent evacuation plans to identify the way out in both a light and dark emergency. With JALITE evacuation plans you can rest assured that - When the lights go out, ours go on™.

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.

Photoluminescent luminance decay properties

Photoluminescent luminance decay properties

Photoluminescent Luminance decay properties of JALITE products. JALITE products are all systematically tested for photoluminescent decay properties according to the test procedures given in BS ISO 17398 and BS ISO 16069. These methods all relate back to the original milestone German Standard DIN 67510 Part 1. JALITE as founder member of the Photoluminescent Safety Products Association was instrumental in setting the industry classification system which was formally adopted in the above ISO Standards. With recent developments in Codes and Standards for Photoluminescent Safety Products and in line with the recognized industry development it is now considered necessary to extend the PSPA material classification systems as follows:  Luminance Classes ISO 17398 and PSPA proposals Classification/Luminance mcd/m2 2 mins 10 mins 30 mins 60 mins Class A 108 25 7 3 Class B 210 50 15 7 Class C 690 140 45 20 Class D 1100 260 85 35 Class E 1800 400 120 55 Class F 2300 520 155 70 Class G 3000 650 190 80   The capability now to extend the luminance decay properties to close to 30 times the performance of the old industry base standard is remarkable and opens the door to improved escape route lighting applications and the eventual replacement of electrical escape route lighting.
