Emergency Lighting

Emergency lighting is primarily intended to provide sufficient illumination to enable people to see their way safely out of a building in the case of emergency.

Safe Evacuations

It is vital that emergency lighting is activated if the normal lighting fails, the lighting needs to be sufficiently bright and illuminated for enough time and positioned in such a way that occupants of a building can be safely evacuated or make their own way out in an emergency.

Our installations conform to BS 5266, the code of practice for the emergency lighting of premises.

It is perhaps also worth baring in mind that additional external lighting may be necessary to enable safe progress away from final exit points, it is also important and indeed a requirement of BS 5266 , that equipment is tested regularly.
