Emergency Lighting Products
"The purpose of emergency lighting is to keep occupants safe and provide light in the event of a mains or local power supply failure."

Emergency lighting should illuminate paths to all exits of the building and the design must consider the following:

  • Escape route signs

  • Stairs to ensure each flight receives direct light

  • Changes in floor level – are there steps to consider?

  • Changes of escape route direction

  • Corridor intersections

  • First aid posts

  • Fire alarm call points/equipment

  • Outside the final exit door and to a place of safety

  • Moving stairways and walkways

  • Toilet facilities exceeding 8 m² or any multiple closet facility without borrowed light

  • Toilet facilities for disabled use

  • Motor generator, control and plant rooms

  • All other areas as deemed by the Risk Assessment

  • Manual release controls for electronically locked doors
