Emergency Lighting

18 Jul 2013 10:33:14

Emergency lighting provides a building with a light in the event of a power failure. The purpose of the emergency lights are:

  • To indicate clearly and unambiguously the escape routes.
  • To provide illumination along such routes to allow safe movement towards and through the exits provided.
  • To ensure that fire alarm call points and fire fighting equipment provided along escape routes can be readily located.
  • To permit operations concerned with safety measures

Emergency lights are available in a Maintained and Non-Maintained version. Maintained emergency lights can be set to be constantly 'On' and the Non-Maintained only turns 'On' in the event of a power failure.
