The Importance of Emergency Lighting: Inspection, Installation & Maintenance

Whatever your business, If you have artificial lighting in operation within your workplace then some form of emergency lighting installation is mandatory, and therefore needs to be serviced appropriately by an experienced lighting professional that is fully informed of emergency lighting regulations.

If the main lighting was out in your building you need to ensure that staff, customers and clients are able to safely exit the building. Although often underestimated, emergency lighting such as led emergency lights or illuminated exit signs are actually just as essential to your building’s fire safety precautions as fire extinguishers! It is a legal requirement that a record of maintenance/testing is kept on-site in a dedicated logbook. This is why it is vital that you work with an electrical contractor like ourselves to meet your emergency lighting installation and maintenance requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

If the main power fails in a commercial property, it is a legal requirement that emergency lighting is installed so that the property can be deemed safe at all times.

Emergency lighting is intended to be the backup lighting if the main power supply fails. It works by being connected to the mains power supply which charges its internal battery constantly, so if the power fails emergency lighting reverts to using its own internal power supply to provide artificial light.

You are able to test your emergency lighting via a test switch key that will activate the emergency lighting test mode. This simulates a scenario as though the main power has been disconnected so that you can see if your emergency lighting works, and you should make effort to check that every single emergency light does.

Depending on the nature of the premise, how long emergency lighting should stay illuminated for is dependent on how fast occupants are able to leave a property/if it is essential that they reenter. For example, in a hotel, the emergency lights must stay lit for 3 hours, whereas minimum illumination for a shop that can be evacuated quickly and isn’t essential to be reentered is an hour.
