Forget Your Emergency Signage, it Will Keep Working Anyway

Photoluminescent fire exit signs are an excellent response to a problem that is often overlooked. In the modern big business and industrial world of large, fully-enclosed buildings, structures which often feature interior rooms and winding lengths of corridor without any access to natural lighting, the safety hazards brought on by a reliance on artificial lighting twenty-four hours per day must be addressed. In the case of an emergency situation, when your employees and other visitors might need to get to an emergency exit for a rapid evacuation of your building, it becomes necessary to account for a possible failure in lighting — resulting in a potential mass of people, in a building which may be on fire or structurally unsound, groping about in conditions of complete darkness which we, as human beings, are not designed to cope with.

Flashlights are useful tools — but one can’t put too many options into the hands of people in this kind of a situation, particularly within a potentially dangerous industrial environment. There, too, flashlights are not self illuminating; they require batteries, which must be checked periodically to ensure that they are still viable. Even a completely unused battery connected to a flashlight’s circuit and ready to go at the flip of a switch will experience a slow power drain over time.

What is Photoluminescence?

Photoluminescence is a reference to the natural chemical processes, inherent to certain materials, by which photoluminescent fire exit signs are able to provide enough light to make themselves visible — and to be seen from as far away as seventy-five feet. They do this by means of a phosphorous coating on metallic letters against a dark, contrasting background — usually red, green, or black. If properly installed in a location which, under normal conditions, receives at least five foot-candles of illumination while your building’s standard lighting is operational, the photoluminescent fire exit sign will absorb photons from the light that strikes it. Once that light source goes out — in the event of a generator failure, an electrical system blackout, or the collapse of the computerized system which controls your building’s lighting — the photoluminescent fire exit sign will release its stored photons slowly over time.

This slow release allows for a dim but steady glow — not enough light to read by, but more than enough to be visible under otherwise dark conditions — which may last for up to several hours.

Photoluminescent fire exit signs are self illuminating. They require exposure to normal lighting under normal conditions, but they don’t require their own source of power, and do not need to be connected to a source of electricity. This makes them extremely easy to install, using only basic tools; you don’t require the services of an electrician or other professional. A photoluminescent fire exit sign will last for decades, theoretically even centuries of use, will never “fail,” and requires only the occasional dry wipe to ensure that no dust or other obscuring particles get in the way of the sign’s phosphorescent glow.

Accommodation Cleaning; Tips and Ideas

Accommodation cleaning.

One of the most expensive and tedious tasks for any owner of any business that deals with accommodation.

So whats the best way to get the most value for money when it comes to cleaning your accommodation services?

Well I spoke to cleaning expert James who runs a duct cleaning Vancouver business (called armanexpert).

He recommended the following;

One of the best things you can do is research. Research, research, research. After all if you are going to spending money and time on getting the best cleaning services for your business, you want to make sure they are the best services possible. Make sure the cleaning companies have insurance, make sure they have good testimonials (etc). Then begin negations with the company. Try and strike a deal with them. Talk about how much work they will be getting from you and see if you can get a discount from them. 

The most important part about using a cleaning service, is longitivy. Stick with the same company over and over. That way you will build a lasting relationship that will last as long as your business flourishes. 

Thanks James!
