Photometric testing of low-level lighting systems

Escape Safe can also provide the statutory five-yearly on-board photometric testing of low-level lighting systems in accordance with the requirements of ISO 15370 and IMO Resolution A 752 (18).

AAA photoluminescent material

Escape Safe is now using a new type of photo-luminescent material for our safety signs, low-level escape systems and marker tapes. This material has three to four times the luminance performance of ordinary ‘Class A’ photo-luminescent materials, therefore improving ease of recognition, legibility and durability. The material is Marine Equipment Directive (MED) and Lloyds type approved for marine applications and exceeds the requirements of ISO 15370 and IMO Resolution A752(18). A certificate of conformance can be provided for the photo-luminescent material.

AAA photo-luminescent safety products have been optimised using the latest unique technology to provide the following key features:

  • Exceptionally high brightness within the first few minutes
  • Conspicuous signs and notices that can be clearly read in total darkness (ideal for life-saving applications)
  • Improved material technology, reducing ageing and weathering performance and providing a better quality, longer lasting product
  • Exceeds standards DIN 67 510 Part 4 and IMO A.752(18)

Pipeline safety shields

We supply pipeline safety shields for the prevention of hazardous spray-outs from pressurised pipework containing fuel oil, chemicals or gases, as required by SOLAS regulations. All safety shields are type approved.

The TFE spray-guard for low and high-pressure lines exactly fits any joint, is re-usable, and can be installed without tools.

The navy roll pipeline safety shield for low and high-pressure lines needs no ship surveys, and is re-usable and inexpensive. The no-spray system comes in a tape or sheet format, with simple installation and superior adhesion. It easily covers irregular shapes.

Safety sign projects

Escape Safe’s largest contract to date was on FPSO Bonga, the world’s largest FPSO vessel. We carried out a full vessel survey to determine the requirements for escape route, fire, IMO safety signage, etc, then supplied over 90 safety plans and 5,000 safety signs and supervised their installation.

Our most prestigious contract was on the super-yacht Le Grand Bleu, where we surveyed, supplied and installed a low-level lighting system and safety signs, and emergency-escape breathing device cabinets.
