Safety lighting on cruise vessels
There are more and more cruises made every year and the principles concerning precautions to be established regarding the risks that may be incurred mean that cruise companies are seeking simple and easily implemented lighting solutions to ensure passenger and crew safety.
-the LightStation (wall-mounted boxes distributing 4, 10 or 20 light sticks) can be used for the emergency lighting needed when passengers and crew members go to a mustering point when there is a possibility of having to leave the vessel. This product is also advisable in the engine rooms and the other areas shared by the crew,
-the S.E.E. System (boxes containing 2 lightsticks) are recommended in the quarters intended for the crew,
– PML (Personal Marker Lights) are used as an additional source of light on lifejackets,
-the large Non-Impact 40cm lightsticks are used by each mustering team PIC (Person in Command) to guide people and show them the way from the mustering points to the evacuation points/lifeboats. They can also be attached to worksite cones (Lubeck cones) with a cone adapter. This increases the range of the light and makes the mustering point easy to see.
-the SnapLight 15cm lightsticks are used as local lights for the passengers (emergency lighting in the cabins); it is practical to have one at hand in the event of a power cut,
-the VisiPad rectangular self-adhesive pads can be useful for medical triage,
-Cyflect retro-reflective and photoluminescent honeycomb bands can be used for marking out mustering points, evacuation routes, doors, steps and stairs…
These various lighting solutions add to the safety of the crews and passengers, preparing them for failures, or bad outside weather conditions, requiring local lighting or emergency lighting.
