Everlux Maritime e-News 5

July 2017

Wow! It has been quite a while since our previous e-News! Everlux team have been busy and therefore there are many news to announce! And what could be a better way of doing it than with this 5th edition of the Everlux Maritime e-News?

We are keeping our course within the marine & offshore markets and it is likely that you have seen us at some of the industry events. For example, in the first semester of 2017 our products have been showcased at Sea Asia in Singapore, Nor-shipping in Oslo and more recently at SeaWork International in Southhampton!


It is wonderful to mingle and connect with the global maritime community and therefore we are already preparing our debut at Seatrade Europe – Cruise & River Cruise Convention. This event will be held in Hamburg from the 6th to the 8th of September and targets the cruise and river cruise segments of the market in which Everlux has a significant experience in.  

November will bring the return of Everlux to Europort – the exhibition for maritime technology. This will be our second consecutive participation and we are thrilled to go back to Rotterdam! So mark the 7th to the 10th of November in your calendar and get underway to the Netherlands!

On the services we provide to the market there have also been some developments. To name only a few, we have been working on the improvement of the Everlux Maritime website and it is now more attractive and easy to use as a tool that you can rely on not only to find the signs you need but also all the essential technical information and normative support. We actually take this opportunity to encourage you to browse through the website and provide us with your feedback!

We have also recently launched a new version of the Everlux Maritime APP which is available for free at the App stores. We recall that this is a fantastic tool to have on your mobile as it will help you to quickly develop onboard surveys and BOQ’s of signs that may be missing on the vessels that you are servicing. The Everlux Maritime APP is now quicker and smoother to use.

In addition to these fantastic tools, we are delighted to announce that the new Everlux Maritime catalogue is just out of the printing press! The catalogues are now being distributed and if you still do not have your own copy please do not hesitate to contact us and request us to send you one. Meanwhile, you can download the pdf version here.

This version of the catalogue contains some new signs and new products such as the multiple colour rolls for pipe marking according to ISO 14726 and NORSOK L-004; and safety signage according to the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures. It also features an increased number of safety signs for super yachts and water safety as well as updated safety awareness and training procedure panels. All of this to help you to keep your vessels up to the latest standards and regulations. For example, with the entry in to force of the Polar Code in January 1st 2017, it was necessary to update the MARPOL "Do not Discharge Garbage Overboard” panel which now must contain specific regulation information for vessels navigating Polar waters.  

Still on the Polar Code subject, the Everlux Maritime catalogue now contains a new mandatory action sign that will remind you of the need to prevent ice and snow accretion on escape routes:

To conclude, we open the veil on the first article of this newsletter as the main drive behind the new Everlux Maritime catalogue was the required transition on to ISO 24409 – 2: 2014 pictograms as per IMO 2016 a MSC.1/Circ.1553. We invite you to read the article "IMO’s adoption of the ISO 24409 graphical symbols” to learn on the changes and on the expected transitions and we hope you will find it as well as this newsletter to be of interest.

Have a great summer!
