Emergency Floodlights on External Escape Routes

Emergency Floodlight with PIR SensorSafelincs are delighted to announce the introduction of an innovative new product – the Emergency LED Floodlight with additional PIR Motion-Activation. This evolution of a standard emergency floodlight has numerous benefits and is proving popular with owners and operators of public and commercial buildings.

The one feature universally required when specifying an emergency floodlight to cover a final exit is that it illuminates the area when most needed, i.e. in the event of an evacuation. By combining a PIR (passive infrared) sensor with a high quality external grade emergency floodlight, this product ensures that a final exit or entrance is never left dark when people are exiting the building. The floodlight will come on the moment people are leaving the building or approaching it. It will, of course, also come on in the event of a power failure and will the illuminate the area for a full three hours, powered by its internal backup battery.

But why not have a light on all of the time you may ask? This is not always advisable, as neighbouring properties could be adversely impacted by light pollution, and of course the running costs of a maintained (always on) emergency floodlight are considerable.

This makes the motion sensor activated emergency LED floodlight not only the most dependable emergency floodlight on the market, but also one of the most cost effective to run. The nature of the product means that the light is only ever on when required, and this feature, combined with the use of energy efficient LED light fittings makes this product environmentally friendly and financially sensible.

If you are installing or replacing an emergency floodlight, then look no further. This is the product for you. For more details about this money-saving weatherproof external floodlight with PIR, visit our brand new product listing or give us a call on 0800 612 6537.

Self-Test LED emergency lighting – save time, money and the environment

Emergency lighting is an essential part of the fire safety planning in any commercial building and potentially saves life in emergencies. To a business however, it can be a costly drain on resources, requiring frequent testing (quite often outsourced), regular replacement of bulbs and lamps and the need to replace the complete lighting unit at the end of its life.

We offer two technologies that will help you save time, money and energy.

Self-test emergency lighting is fitted with a system that automatically conducts periodical tests to ensure that the unit is fully functioning and safe in an emergency.  If a fault is detected then an audio / visual warning is triggered. The installation of self-test units means that no engineer visits are required to test the emergency lights, saving time and money. You can also rest assured that your testing program complies with best practice.

On top of this we sell self-testing emergency lighting with LED luminaires which offer even more advantages over traditional lighting. LED emergency lights have a far lower energy consumption than fluorescent emergency lights, a longer life span, greater durability and increased reliability.

Combining the two features creates an opportunity for customers to buy and fit emergency lighting that is low maintenance and cost-saving. To find out more about the potential of these units see our ranges of self-test and LED emergency lighting units.

Benefits of LED Emergency Lighting

Bafe Certified ringtail, Safelincs’ supplier of Emergency Lighting products have developed a full range of LED emergency lights to meet the future requirements for low energy, high efficiency and environmental friendly emergency lights.

There are many advantages associated with LEDs, the main ones being reliability and longevity. A typical high-power LED will realise 10 years maintenance free service when used for 12 hours every day, thus saving the maintenance costs of replacing 20 new filament lamps over the 10 year life span and the environmental cost of their disposal.

In addition, a 9W LED is now brighter than a 35W dichroic and is using 75% less electricity, thus producing a cost saving in electricity consumption of up to £155.00 during its lifetime.

The small dimensions, low power consumption, higher luminous efficacy and low beam temperature of the LED allow many opportunities in design flexibility.

LEDs are the future for emergency lighting requirements. Start saving today and install LED emergency lights
