Emergency Lighting

Illuminating your business 24 hours a day.

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.

Operating Modes of Emergency Lighting

Emergency Lights are generally categorised into two modes of operation:

Maintained – a luminaire in which the emergency lighting lamps are illuminated at all times. Maintained mode is generally used in places of assembly such as theatres, cinemas, clubs and halls; the full list is contained in BS 5266. The lights are typically dimmed when these premises are occupied and the emergency escape lighting prevents total darkness.
Non-Maintained – a luminaire whose emergency lamps only illuminate when the power supply to the normal lighting fails. Non-maintained is the typical mode in a workplace or similar environment in which artificial lighting is normally deployed while the premises are occupied.

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.

Emergency Light Types

Self Contained Type – each individual fitting has its own local wired power supply and contains a rechargeable back-up battery.
Central Battery Type – All fittings are wired back to one central battery unit.
