Emergency Lighting

Emergency Lighting in Buildings

In most commercial buildings emergency lighting is a legal stipulation. But, that is not exclusive to business premises. There are other buildings where escape lighting must be installed. For those who have it. The main aim will be to provide illumination for the occupants to leave the building. Some emergency lighting is switched on full time. If preferred, it will switch on whenever there is an electrical power failure. Emergency bulkhead lights are there to assist in the event of a fire. They will also help during power cuts and similar emergencies. (continued below)

Types of Emergency Lights

There are various emergency lights and each one has been carefully designed. They have features that fulfill the requirements of the installer. Every installation has its own special needs. Our profile should provide for every eventuality. There are bulkheads, exit sign boxes, hanging blades and twin halogen spots. They can be fixed to walls and ceilings. Or, where they can direct staff and members of the public to safety.

Testing and Servicing Emergency Lighting

Emergency lights have integral battery packs. They will usually sustain light output for three hours after mains electrical failure. Batteries must be tested at regular intervals. So, it is necessary to simulate mains failure to assess their performance. Battery discharge tests are usually carried out at the weekend. Or, at other times when the premises close. The emergency lighting circuit must have all the facilities for a test. When it's carried out, the results should be registered in a log. Regular testing and servicing is an essential process. That will ensure the emergency lighting remains in full working order.
