Congressman tours Clarion HQ

Posted by Clarion Safety on 17th Aug 2009

Milford, PA –  Rep. Christopher P. Carney, D-10th, PA, hailed Clarion Safety Systems' photoluminescent Exit signs as a great way to save energy in buildings of all types.

The company's UL 924 signs use no energy and require no conduit or other wiring to install. They recharge daily from ambient light. Carney said the energy savings are clear, and that such signs could tie into efforts to reduce energy use in federal buildings.

Carney on Aug. 17 toured the Clarion manufacturing and headquarters buildings. He also reviewed other steps Clarion is taking to improve safety, including the advocacy of translations and symbols to cut across language barriers where safety signs are concerned. Clarion President Geoffrey Peckham briefed Carney on the UL 924 Exit signs and their manufacture, as well as the latest technologies for producing facility safety signs and product safety labels. Among other new markets, Clarion has become a supplier to makers of hybrid car batteries, and Peckham told the congressman that Clarion hopes to expand business in this area.

Clarion's products are virtually all manufactured by local workers using the highest-grade materials, primarily from 3M. Material quality is a key component of long-term adhesion, durability and long life, and with safety warnings it's imperative that the warning appear for the life of the product.Peckham also briefed Carney on the steps Clarion is taking to move building signage to the new standards for best practices, rather than the dated approach of many OSHA-style signs typically seen. Today's approach makes use of more explicit word messages, symbols, standardized colors, and translations.Carney, a Democrat from Pennsylvania's 10th District, is in his second term. Peckham is also chairman of the ANSI Z535.2 subcommittee on Environmental and Facility Safety Signs.
