Specialists in all aspects of Emergency Lighting for your premises.
An Emergency Light is a battery-backed light source that switches on automatically when a building experiences a power outage.
Emergency Lights are standard in new commercial and high occupancy residential buildings, and also now found in older buildings.
Incandescent or filament lamps were originally used in emergency lights before fluorescent and later LED superseded them.
Emergency Lighting is often referred to as egress lighting. Emergency Lights are used in commercial buildings as a safety precaution to a mains failure or power outage so that people will be able to find their way out of a building.
Exit signs are often used in conjunction with Emergency Lighting.
As there are strict requirements to provide an average of one lux along the path of egress emergency lighting should be selected carefully to ensure codes are met.
An Emergency Lighting installation may be either a central battery system such a bank of lead acid batteries and control gear supplying slave luminaires throughout the building or may be constructed using self-contained Emergency Lighting luminaires which incorporate the lamp battery and charge inverter or module.
Self-contained Emergency Lighting luminaires may operate in Maintained mode (Illuminated all the time or controlled via a switch) or Non Maintained mode (Illuminated only when the normal supply has been lost.
