Photoluminescent Signs: How SafeSign contributes to your Safety at Sea

Photoluminescent signs

Safety is essential in the harsh conditions of life at sea, especially in the maritime and offshore industry. In this high-stakes environment, the quality of safety signs can be a matter of life and death. At T-ISS and SafeSign, we understand the gravity of this responsibility and have revolutionized the way photoluminescent signs are produced, ensuring that your safety is never compromised.


What are photoluminescent signs?

Photoluminescent signs are a type of safety signage designed to be highly visible in low-light or dark conditions, without the need for external power sources like electricity. These signs are made using photoluminescent materials that absorb and store ambient light during the day and then release that stored energy as visible light in the form of a glow in the dark.

The goal of photoluminescent signs is to provide clear and visible safety information in dark areas, for instance when the power goes down during an emergency or fire. The signs are used to enhance safety, guide individuals, and convey critical information.


Why is safety signage so important?

Since it is very easy to order cheap Safety Signs on the internet, it is crucial to understand the importance of high quality signage. The consequences of poor-quality safety signs can be tremendous. These signs are often manufactured using cheap methods, resulting in signs that quickly deteriorate when exposed to UV (daylight) and harsh weather conditions. They discolor, warp, and fail to serve their primary purpose of keeping your crew safe.

In a world where safety should never be compromised, this is a risk we cannot afford to take.

SafeSign’s Innovative Solution

At SafeSign, we decided to innovate Safety Signs in order to offer you the highest quality signs. Our revolutionary production method places the photoluminescent layer and color print on the backside of the sign, shielding them from environmental influences. The sign is then sealed with a PE closed-cell foam tape with a self-adhesive backing for easy installation. The result? A high-quality, glossy sign that stands the test of time, maintaining its integrity and function.

Our photoluminescent signs are not just ordinary signs. They store energy from light sources and release it in the darkness, ensuring visibility even in the most challenging conditions. Our signs not only meet industry standards but exceed them, with DNV certification.


Eco-Friendly Photoluminescent Signs

SafeSign continues to lead the way by replacing PVC with a modified PET, called PETX. This material is not only recyclable, reducing the environmental footprint, but it also offers superior resistance against UV, ensuring your signs remain pristine even in harsh outdoor conditions.

SafeSign uses 100% environmentally friendly materials, free from toxins or radioactive additives, ensuring the safety of both the environment and those who depend on our signs


Are high quality signs expensive?

You might be wondering, “Why SafeSign?” The answer is simple. While the cost of signs is a small fraction of your total signage expenses, the benefits of SafeSign photoluminescent signs are immeasurable. Our signs last a minimum of 5 years, saving you from the hassle of frequent replacements. In addition, their self-adhesive backing makes installation very easy, reducing installation costs and increasing efficiency.
