Emergency Lighting

Emergency lighting is designed to come on when power to the building is cut off. They are self-contained units which are wired to the mains but have a separate battery pack attached, which would then power the lights in the event of a power outage.

Emergency lighting uses high-intensity brightness which is often focused towards a fire exit. The lights are generally low voltage, for longevity of the batteries and the bulbs themselves.

Emergency Lighting Systems Supplied to Fit Your Company Decor

Fire Guard Services have a range of fire safety lighting available as in recent years the style has leaned in a more decorative direction, to fit in with modern buildings and designs to provide aesthetics as well as functionality. It is standard procedure in virtually all public (apart from domestic) and business buildings to have a commercial emergency lighting system fitted in the event of fire or loss of power.

Fire safety lighting should be incorporated into any safety plan. If you are unsure of the products you need, be it fire alarms or fire extinguishers, we can provide you with fire risk assessment services and fire safety staff training.

Servicing Recommendations

Under the code of practice for emergency lighting (BS 5266), lighting must be regularly serviced and maintained to ensure it is in fully working order.

A service must be carried out annually, however we recommend this is done every 6 months and is carried out alongside your fire alarm service. This involves a 3 hour duration test which tests the functionality of the emergency lighting.
