Escape Route Lighting – Ensures all means of escape can be identified and safely used by occupants of the building.
Open Area Lighting – Allows sufficient illumination to guide occupants to reach part of the building where an escape route can be found.
High-Risk Task Area Lighting – Provides illumination for the safety of people involved in potentially dangerous situations. This lighting will ensure the proper shut-down process of procedures can be completed without risking the safety of the operator and surrounding occupants.
In the event of a fire or a power cut, the normal source of lighting is likely to fail. This can lead to sudden darkness and cause a dangerous situation for occupants.
Emergency lighting is required to operate automatically when a fire is detected, or the power is cut off and provide enough light to enable all the occupants to leave the premises safely.
Guidelines for emergency lighting is provided by the British Standard for different levels of premises, including hotels, clubs, hospitals, offices and many more for complex installation.
