Emergency Lighting Servicing
Emergency lighting is a critical element in the process of evacuating a building safely during the outbreak of a fire. They are required when the main power supply is affected and normal lighting has stopped working. Without emergency lighting a building could be placed in sudden darkness, leading to panic and a rushed evacuation.
In such an event emergency lighting will be called upon to operate fully automatically so that a building is completely illuminated. This will allow occupants to conduct a safe evacuation. This is because escape routes will be visible, allowing clear passage to safety.
UK fire safety legislation stipulates that emergency lighting has to be fully tested once a year, and monitored closely every month. The legislation says that:
“The latest British Standard recommends that you have a 3 hour emergency lighting test once a year, during which your main light circuit should be switched off and your emergency lights left on for a 3 hour period, to test if any fail to work for the full duration. The 3 hour time window is to allow the fire brigade time to work in the event of a fire once all of the building’s occupants have safely evacuated.”
