Emergency Lighting forms an essential part of a company’s Fire Risk Management strategy, it is designed to help occupants see their way to safety in the event of a mains power failure.
When a fire occurs you never know who will be in your building, and the placement of this lighting is carefully thought out. This is to ensure that – even if you have no knowledge of the building layout – you will be able to find your way to an exit safely.
We can create bespoke solutions for warehouses, offices, residential property developments and for specialist areas and buildings. We can also provide regular maintenance and testing of systems to ensure functionality is maintained.
Why is emergency lighting important?
It is of particular importance for commercial and industrial buildings that have a number of people coming in and out of the building and of a more complex layout.
When a fire breaks out and all the lights go off it is natural to feel panicked and with thick smoke filling the room, finding your way out of the building without effective lighting guiding you can be difficult. Without emergency lighting, it is near impossible.
Traditional emergency lighting vs LED emergency lighting
In recent years we have seen a subtle shift towards LED emergency lighting over the traditional fluorescent lighting used in the past. One of the main reasons for this is to reduce energy consumption, but there are many more benefits.
LED lighting provides a higher quality of light with no flickering that was so often find in traditional emergency lighting. LED provides a clearer illumination which makes for a smoother exit. Further to that, the need for the frequent replacement of your fluorescent tubes will also be eliminated.
Other benefits of LED emergency lighting include:
- Longer lasting
- Energy efficiency
- Better for the environment
- Directional lighting
