Emergency Lighting

Emergency Lighting

All commercial and industrial buildings must be fitted with an Emergency Lighting System to ensure safe evacuation in the case of an emergency. It is vital that these systems are properly maintained; not only because it is a statutory requirement and most insurance companies require it, but because the safety of you and staff may depend on it.

We can arrange regular inspection, testing and certification of emergency lighting systems every 6 or 12 months to ensure your premises fully comply with BS5266-1. For the majority of clients, we provide annual inspection, testing and certification of emergency lighting.

Our inspection and testing procedures include the following:

  • Luminaire duration testing

  • Cleaning of diffusers

  • Battery charging functional check

  • Labelling of luminaires

  • Supply of test results and/or log books

  • Supply and fitting of emergency exit directional signs

  • Advice on any improvements required

  • Certification

The purpose of emergency lighting testing is to ensure that emergency lights remain fully functional (for the specified duration) during mains electrical failure and that all lighting and exit signs are up to date with current legislation and are adequate for the purpose intended.

Implementation of a periodic system of inspection and testing ensures that emergency lighting systems remain reliable at all times and that in the event of an emergency or power failure, the emergency lighting operates, ensuring that people can safely evacuate the building.
