Types of Emergency Light System Installations
Emergency Escape Lighting
A lighting system that provides illumination for the safe evacuation of people. This is part of the fire safety provision of a building and a legal requirement under The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
Part of the emergency lighting system that enables normal activities to continue unchanged. Standby lighting is not a legal requirement and may or may not be required, depending upon the use of the premises
Emergency escape lighting has three sub-divisions, as follows:
✓ Escape route lighting – part of an emergency lighting system that ensures a means of escape can be identified and safely used by occupants.
✓ Open area lighting (also known as ‘anti-panic’ lighting) – part of an emergency lighting system that helps minimise panic and provides sufficient illumination to help occupants reach a part of the building where an escape route can be found.
✓ High risk task area lighting – part of an emergency lighting system that provides illumination for the safety of people involved in a dangerous process or situation. This enables proper building shut-down procedures to be followed, for the safety of both operators and occupants.
