An effective escape route signage system consists of several elements. Think about LED EXIT lights. They are an indispensable element to guide guests and crew on board of a vessel to safety at all times. Imagine escape route signage without LED EXIT lights. You can’t do without them! In this article we tell you all about our LED escape & EXIT lights, and how they meet all your needs.
Cruise ships or ferries are complex architectural environments. First of all, do all guests or crew member know the exact layout of the ship? And do they know where the lifeboats are on the ship and how to get there? They probably do not. Second, the designation of LED EXIT lights is not always correct. LED Escape Sign is a more applicable designation, as an “EXIT” in the middle of the open sea is not recommended.
Lastly, in accordance with ISO, as defined in the 24409-2 required by IMO Resolution 1116(30), a safety sign should always consist of a symbol. This can include the word ‘EXIT’ or ‘Assembly station’. However, the word ‘EXIT’ is not sufficient. Furthermore, an arrow without the addition of a symbol is not an escape sign.
Our newly developed line of LED Escape Signs is designed to not only meet all of the laws and regulations but also to fit perfectly in terms of functionality and design into the passenger corridors aboard cruise ships and ferries. Our LED Escape signs/LED Exit lights for cruise and ferry are more than just pretty to look at. Through an innovation resulting from our years of experience with after-glowing safety signs, our SafeSign Led Escape Sign features photoluminescent material so that when the electricity source fails due to a disaster, the photoluminescent properties of the escape sign take over. This eliminates the need for a battery, which fits within the objectives of reducing the carbon footprint of the cruise and ferry industry.
Watch here the effect of our LED Escape Sign switching from electrical power to afterglow.
Our SafeSign LED Escape Sign is available in every possible layout, of which you can see some examples here:
