The importance of the escape route signage system
In the event of an emergency situation e.g. fire, smoke will rise to the top of the ceiling very quickly. This situation will obscure regular exit signs that are commonly placed above exit doors or other important locations. Irrespective of the emergency situation, a quick, logical and easy evacuation must be possible. According to occupational health and safety legislations and other laws and regulations, an Escape route signage system is mandatory within larger buildings, factories and onboard ferries and cruise ships.
The Photoluminescence in our ISO 7010 Safety signs
What photoluminescent escape route signage does is that it absorbs the regular light from lighting fixtures. This has the consequence that when power falls out in a case of an emergency, the Escape route sign system will remain clearly visible in the dark. You can imagine that this property can make an enormous difference during, for example, an event of fire. When using photoluminescent emergency escape route signs you are not dependent on man-made lighting systems that require power from an emergency generator or a battery, and are known to fail in emergency situations. Photoluminescent escape route signage will never fail when regular lighting unexpectedly stops working.
One of the occasions where a photoluminescent effect is used are in safety signs. Safety signs are signs that give a general safety message, through a combination of colour and geometric shape and which, by addition of a graphical symbol, give a particular message. They are used at high, low and intermediate locations, according to the Safety Way Guidance System, in order to guide the evacuee to a place of safety. Combining these signs with photoluminescent properties ensures a clear guiding system for all nearby people.
Escape route signs, Fire fighting signs, and Rescue equipment signs
Our range of Escape route signs, Fire fighting signs, and Rescue equipment signs include all the signage products you may need to ensure a safe environment in your building, on your vessel or any other fitting occasion. Clearly marked fire extinguishers, fire alarms and rescue equipment are important when emergencies occur. Clear identification is also important from the point of view of prevention. For the reason that people are able to observe the warnings during normal working and visiting situations, they make mental notes of the locations and the equipment. When an emergency arises they are capable of acting immediately, even in a stressful situation, because they are able to find the extinguishers, alarms and rescue equipment rapidly.
There are several ways of marking fire prevention, fire fighting and rescue equipment as easily identifiable as possible. Their presence and location must be visible from all directions. This applies to both the normal and the stressful situations. Our clients see signage as more than just an obligation resulting merely from legislation and regulations.
Aluminium signage offers you the ‘premium‘, luxury look you may be looking for. Besides the great looks, aluminium signage is a very durable product. Our aluminium signs have the same outstanding photoluminescent quality. This makes them great to be used in areas where regulations prescribe the use of non-combustible signage besides the PETX signage. Due to the flexibility of the aluminium material, we can also offer bend aluminium signs. We produce single- or double-sided wall-mount signs when your specific occasion requires it.
Panorama aluminium signs
Panoramic aluminium signage makes it possible to display a safety sign widely. The pre-drilled holes make it easy to install, and the aluminium signage comes with the same outstanding properties as the flat aluminium signage. Panoramic aluminium signage realizes a 180° angle reach, which means people will see the sign from a far distance from a 180° range. As well as our regular flat aluminium signage, panoramic aluminium signage features the same outstanding photoluminescent quality.
