Emergency Lighting Installation
The lights can’t go out. Emergency lighting must work automatically and stay on long enough for safe evacuation.
To meet fire safety regulations, emergency lighting has to be installed. An emergency lighting installation is designed to provide illumination when conventional lighting fails, so people can safely see their way out of a building in an emergency.
Emergency lighting needs to be sufficiently bright, stay illuminated long enough, and be positioned so occupants can be evacuated safely.
Planning and locating
Installing emergency lights in your premises is not just about showing users the fire exits. Lights must be located to provide sufficient illumination according to the different areas of a premises and must conform to the latest legislation.
