Emergency Lighting

Emergency Lighting

Emergency lighting is a system that provides lighting in an emergency situation when the main power supply fails. The loss of mains electricity could be the result of a fire or a power cut but usually results with the regular lighting supplies failing. This can lead to sudden darkness and a possible danger to people within a building either through physical danger or panic.

Emergency lighting is normally required to operate fully automatically and give sufficiently lighting to enable all occupants to evacuate a premise safely. Most new buildings now have emergency lighting installed during construction and is divided into emergency escape lighting and standby lighting.
