Emergency Lighting

The team offer a range of emergency lighting services, such as emergency lighting testing. The services can be provided for a number of commercial properties which includes offices, factories, warehouses, schools, nurseries, retail chains, food outlets, care homes and housing associations. They are provided under the following categories.

High risk task areas require more light than evacuation routes or open area areas. The requirement is typically 10% of normal lighting or 15 lux minimum, so that employees involved in hazardous processes will properly shut down equipment before fire services arrive. Some examples might include acid baths at plants or industrial robots at factories.

Anti panic or open areas are intended to make it easier for people to find an evacuation route via direction finding and visual conditions. Anti panic emergency lighting is typically deployed in large rooms such as school halls.

Escape route lighting aids the fire evacuation process by providing direction finding instructions and visual signs, for promptly finding fire fighting and safety equipment. Standby lighting allows everyday activities to continue when power failures do occur. It does not provide fire protection unless it meets the same equipment design and installation specifications of emergency escape lighting.

Emergency lighting provides a safe exit from a commercial building in the event of a fire. Emergency lighting should be maintained at regular intervals in accordance with British Standards - BS5266. The highly trained technicians will undertake a service which is suitable for your structure requirements.

Emergency lighting should be serviced every 6 months, and regular internal tests should be done on weekly/monthly intervals.

During testing these systems should operate for at least 1 hour upon becoming active, although increasingly the average has reached 3 hours as systems continue to develop. Emergency lighting testing services for customers will be done throughout the year.
