According to the regulations, vessels that carry more than 12 passengers must have a Low Location Light system
installed. The photoluminescent LLL system will be charged by the lighting on the vessel and will use the energy
it collects to light up in the dark.
The big advantage of this system is that there are no electric installations that need to be installed. This will save
you money in installation costs, as well as the costs of running the system.
Rules and regulations details system requirements, of which below we highlight:
● The installed material must be Class/Wheelmark approved.
● All escape routes, including stairs, must be marked by LLL.
● Where stairs or corridors are more than 2m wide, LLL ships should be provided on both sides.
● ‘Exit’ signs should be provided at each exit, located on the same side as the door handle.
● Fire and watertight doors should be marked to show how the door opens.
● LLL lightning must be placed not more than 30cm above the deck at all points of the escape route.
● Systems must have their luminescence tested at least once every 5 years.
