What is Emergency Lighting

What is Emergency Lighting

Emergency lighting provides lighting when the electrical power supply in a building fails. This allows safe evacuation, the shut-down of critical processes or even continuation of work. 'Emergency Escape Lighting' provides the lighting for the evacuation process or a safe shut-down, while 'Standby Lighting' allows normal activities to continue.

Maintained and Non-Maintained Lighting

Maintained and Non-Maintained Lighting

Maintained emergency lights remains on all the time. This mode is primarily applied in places of assembly such as cinemas, theatres, clubs and halls preventing total darkness if the room lighting gets dimmed as part of the function of the building. Non-maintained emergency lights only come on when the electrical power supply fails. Typically used in workplaces.

LED Emergency Lights and Energy Savings

LED Emergency Lights and Energy Savings

Where possible non-maintained emergency lights should be used to reduce power consumption. LED emergency lights reduce electricity consumption even further. Not only is the lighting using less power when switched on but the trickle charge for the topping-up of the back-up battery inside the unit is reduced. The maintenance cost for LED lighting is also lower, as the LED elements last significantly longer than ordinary emergency lighting fluorescent tubes.

Maintenance Frequencies for Emergency Lighting

Maintenance Frequencies for Emergency Lighting

Emergency lighting connected to the mains wiring should be tested monthly by interrupting the power supply to the emergency lights and verifying the correct function of the lights. An annual test is required to check the lights AND the batteries. To do this the power supply is interrupted and the emergency lights are left on for a specified period (often 3 hours). At the end of this period the lights still have to be on or the battery (and possibly tube) must be replaced.

These tests should preferably be carried out out of hours to prevent a potential emergency situation after all emergency lights have been drained. Alternatively, every second light can be tested or some temporary battery powered lighting be provided.
