[Make sure the lights don’t go out
Emergency lighting must work automatically and stay on long enough for safe evacuation.
EMERGENCY LIGHTING INSTALLATION
Why do you need an Emergency lighting installation? In order to fully meet fire safety regulations emergency lighting has to be installed. It is designed to provide lighting for building evacuation when the conventional lighting fails.
To provide sufficient illumination to enable people to see their way safely out of a building in cases of emergency.
It is therefore vital that emergency lighting comes on if the normal lighting fails. It needs to be sufficiently bright, illuminated for enough time, and the light sources so positioned that the occupants of a building can be evacuated safely in an emergency.
