THE FARBLEITSYSTEM (FLS) AT SCHOOLS
Since 2009, Dejan Pavlovic’s FLS-system (the color-guided-system) has been developed with the Main-Taunus-Kreis in Germany, which offers students, teachers, administrative staff and external visitors a faster orientation in the schools. In addition, security forces, such as rescue services, fire brigades and police forces, are also projected to have a simple orientation within the school buildings in order to be able to provide assistance as quickly as possible, especially in emergencies or crises.
We are constantly developing the FLS and are in direct contact with the schools and the police to implement new ideas and advice. Meanwhile, the FLS has convinced several counties and schools that this system will be in time.
In addition to the public and visible part of the FLS (door markers, entrance markers, signs, etc.), two types of FLS-standardized orientation plans are created for the police, fire brigade, and rescue services, but these are only available for internal use.
Barrier-free elements are integrated with the FLS as required. Thus we are marked barrier-free accesses to buildings on the orientation boards, and an additional form of communication can be applied to the door markers and orientation boards using Braille writing or tactile writing.
The FLS can be combined with other orientation systems.
The orientation boards in the outdoor area of the school buildings provide an initial overview.
Colored marking tapes with integrated arrows at the upper lights of the respective entrance doors simplify the routing into the individual colored building complexes.
In order to support the orientation there are additional wall markings, which point the way in the respective building parts.
The main components of the FLS are these door markers which are installed both on the inside and outside of the doors. These can be supplemented with further elements. Tactile elements or digital transmitters (NFC or iBeacons) are possible.
Even the installation of the simple FLS facilitates the orientation in the buildings for people with sensory limitations. We also have the possibilities to work with tactile elements or electronic devices.
FLS DESIGN FOR PUBLIC BUILDINGS
Specially developed for public buildings. Interchangeable name tags, accessibility and carrier materials are freely selectable.
FACTS ABOUT THE FARBLEITSYSTEM (FLS)
With the Farbleitsystem in schools the searched room is found up to 5 times faster. This was confirmed during several assignments in the Main-Taunus-Kreis.
With well over 70% in schools the orientation in crisis situations is deficient. The Farbleitsystem increases the safety standard and facilitates the use of the police and rescue forces.
Over 170 schools now have the Farbleitsystem in Germany. A further 40 schools will be added in 2017.
