Emergency Lighting

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 quickly 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 expertly 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.

Fire Exit Signs

The team can advise you on how fire exit signs should work. In many cases, the electrical supply of a commercial property will be cut when a fire breaks out. When the power supply does fails, you will want to make sure that emergency lighting is functioning as intended, so that your staff can quickly evacuate whilst fire services get in easily.

Emergency lighting is needed in all areas requiring artificial lighting, including outside final exit points, first aid points, fire fighting equipment, corridors and intersections, changes in floor level, changes of directions, staircases, areas of special risk, open areas greater than 60 square meters, and on escape routes.

Illuminated fire exit signs (also known as fire escape route signs) must be visible, even when power to the normal lighting fails. Subject to local regulations, the minimum backup duration of emergency lights is between 1-3 hours and the experts will offer a supply, installation and maintenance service.

The experts always aim to supply a professional and cost-effective solution towards your legal obligations regarding emergency lighting. They will supply, install and service all aspects of your emergency lighting system including key switches, luminaries and control equipment.
