Emergency Lighting Fire Safety For Your Business.
When it comes to protecting your business, emergency lighting is for emergency situations where the main power supply has been cut.
The loss of electricity can be often the result of a fire or power cut, when the normal power supply fails. In the event of this happening your building can be left in darkness, causing a danger to the occupants inside and panic to arise.
Emergency lighting is a back up and gives illumination and sufficient lighting in these situations. In-turn allowing the occupants of the building to evacuate the premises.
It is a form of lighting, which comes on automatically in the event of the buildings power supply failing. Emergency lighting systems light up the area to an escape route for people to evacuate the building.
Often new buildings now come with emergency lighting already installed. However, it is still important to have the lighting regularly checked and maintained, to ensure it is working correctly and up to the current fire safety standards.
Escape Route Emergency Lighting
When an emergency occurs, the emergency lighting for the escape routes light up and provide illumination so that effective means of escape can be identified from occupants to evacuate the building safely.
Standby Lighting Systems
These are part of the emergency lighting system, they provide lighting to enable activities to continue in the event of a power cut. Standby lighting is not a legal requirement and may not be required by all buildings. It depends on the type of business, for some companies it is essential for preventing down time and loss of business.
Each company is different and has its own individual requirements. The levels of illumination do vary on each buildings layout and how it is used. For example if a building is occupied at night, there has to be provisions made for emergency lighting in all areas of the building.
