based on AS-42 Photoluminescent PVC plates
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.

Anchor screws should be purchased separately.
Self-adhesive mounting foam
The easiest method of fixing LLL strips in place is to stick them to the required surface such as a wall using double-sided self-adhesive foam tape (AS-80*). This method is especially useful when dealing with uneven surfaces or when drilling holes in the given surface is impossible.
* The double sided self-adhesive foam tape can be purchased separately.
Complimentary Stickers for LLL
After fixing the LLL strips in place we mark them with appropriate stickers so that they indicate the actual location of the Assembly Stations, fire-extinguishers and other fire safety and first aid equipment. The list below includes all the most popular pictograms and symbols used as part of the LLL system. We deliver other symbols on demand.
