Low Location Lighting System
Lighting systems indicate the escape route for all individuals or groups so that they can follow the fastest and safest possible path to a protected area in the event of an emergency. Low location lighting systems are used when there is a risk and other systems are unable to properly function due to heavy smoke, power failure or similar. In this case, low location lighting systems ensure an illuminated escape route with the help of safety symbols, directional information and lighting strips.
Photoluminescent labelling is particularly relevant in maritime environ-ments, as these are often windowless and therefore do not provide any daylight, fresh air supply or smoke extraction possibilities. Clear and reliable orientation must also be ensured in the event of a power failure or emergency so that confusion and panic can be avoided when exiting the respective space. Depending on what’s happening in the surrounding area, different luminance values may be necessary. Since 1993, IMO Resolution A. 752 (18) has required that low location lighting systems be installed in passenger ships and ferries so that, in case of emergency, crew members and passengers can safely and quickly evacuate.
The low location lighting system from the Standard and Plus product classes is composed of profiles, Wheelmark-certified Luxolight® insertion strips, connecting pieces / end caps and transparent, self-adhesive symbols that comply with ISO specifications.
