Tunnel escape route systems

08 June 2010

Escape routes in tunnels are unfamiliar territory for the majority of occupants and with growing concerns on effective evacuation procedures a leading construction company has set the benchmark for evacuation systems.

Designed and developed by Jalite, the 316 Low Location Lighting (LLL) System requires no electrical connection illuminating immediately with the removal of external light sources, providing excellent delineation of the escape route guiding occupants to a place of safety.

With the stringent requirements on constructional materials for use within tunnels, many of the common materials used within the photoluminescent industry were deemed unsuitable due to non compliance of the low smoke zero halogen requirements (LSZH).

The Jalite 316 LLL System is constructed from a 1.0mm 316L stainless steel angled profile engineered to acutely absorb ambient light completed with an encapsulated Jalite AAA photoluminescent layer. The profile comes with fixing holes to enable secure mechanical fixing to the tunnel wall. Sections are simply butted together producing a seamless route of guidance to the nearest exit.

The system is set to be installed in two large UK tunnels, providing a failsafe emergency evacuation system.
