Emergency lighting provides illumination for the safety of people leaving a location, or attempting to terminate a potentially dangerous process before leaving, in the event of a failure of the power supply to the normal lighting provision. Emergency Lighting is part of the fire safety provision of a building and a requirement of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do emergency lights work?
Emergency Lights are generally categorised into two modes of operation:
What type of fittings do you install?
In new installations, we install low power LED fittings that can be set to either maintained or non-maintained depending on the needs of the premises.
Do I need emergency lighting?
UK legislation imposes a duty on persons, including employers and other persons with control of premises, to carry out risk assessments and to take such precautions as to ensure as far as reasonably practicable the safety of the occupants.
These measures include the provision of safe means of escape, including emergency escape routes and exits, together with compliant signage. Sufficient emergency lighting needs to be provided where people are particularly exposed to danger (e.g. in an operating theatre, or using hazardous machinery etc).
Every building should have a responsible person – a delegated individual who is responsible for the provision and operation of appropriate emergency lighting.
