Low Location Lighting (LLL)
based on Dura Plate
One of the most important elements of safety systems on board ships and offshore drilling platforms is Low Location Lighting. These glow-in-the-dark strips with arrows direct passengers and crew to the nearest Assembly Station and also indicate the location of particular fire safety and first aid equipment (eg. fire-extiguishers, emergency telephones and the overall direction of evacuation).
The use of clearly marked and visible directions limits confusion and the risk of people panicking during emergency situations.
The low location of the photoluminescent strips ie. just above ground level, is due to the fact that during a fire smoke rises gathering near the ceiling. This forces people to move along the ground usually in a crawling or crouched position.
Photoluminescent LLL strips do not need any external energy source. As a result of specific physiochemical properties of strontium aluminate they emit the previously accumulated light becoming visible even in complete darkness.
The A-SPE LLL systems are available in several versions diversified by luminescence strength, length and width of the strips, the material used, application method (ie. how they are fixed in place) and price.
Dura Plate stripes can be mounted directly on the wall with a screwdriver
