Photoluminescent Tapes and Fabrics
Starting from January 2009, Galant, LLC begins the production of the photoluminescent fabric as per Specification ТУ У.17.5-22592900-006:2008 Amendment No. 1.
Special solution applied to the photoluminescent fabric has a capability to accumulate light when different sources of light get on this fabric.
Due to its capability to accumulate light and then return it in the dark, photoluminescent fabric is used in evacuation systems and fire safety systems to ensure proper evacuation of people out of the building during an emergency. Any serious accident, fire or other emergency situation is followed by the automatic energy shutoff. In the dark, even a person familiar with the premises will immediately lose orientation during an emergency, which will result in panic leading to unconscious behavior. Being able to orientate themselves in low visibility conditions helps people act quickly and control the situation.
Equipment of a fire fighter, being made using photoluminescent tapes of higher brightness, makes him visible in the smoke or dust.
Equipment can include different elements visible in the dark, such as helmet with the photoluminescent stripe, vest with photoluminescent stripes and the retroreflective belt, vest with photoluminescent and retroreflective stripes, arm band and belts out of photoluminescent and retroreflective materials, photoluminescent fire hoses, «Chimsvet» lightning bars, emblems, signs and other marking out of photoluminescent and retroreflective materials for the visualization of people, cars, other search-and-rescue means, equipment and tools.
Photoluminescent Fabric Field of Application
Photoluminescent fabric can be used for the manufacturing of the working clothing for subway and airport personnel, miners, railroaders, strappers, rescuers of different categories and fire fighters.
Photoluminescent fabrics can be successfully used as signal barriers to mark obstacles and dangerous areas during the evacuation from the dark places.
