Emergency Lighting Installation & Testing in Peterborough

Share This Post

Emergency lighting is an essential safety feature in any building. It provides illumination in the event of a power outage, allowing people to safely exit the building and navigate to the nearest exit. Emergency lighting is required by law in most commercial and public buildings, and it must be properly maintained to ensure that it is functioning properly.

Emergency Lighting Installation

Emergency lighting installation involves the placement of lighting fixtures in key locations throughout a building. These fixtures are designed to activate automatically in the event of a power outage, providing illumination for a specified duration of time. Emergency lighting fixtures are typically placed near exits, stairways, and other areas that are essential for safe evacuation.

Emergency lighting systems are wired into the building’s electrical system and also have an onboard battery backup. The onboard battery is kept topped up by the mains power and will kick in whenever power is lost.

Emergency Light Testing

Regular testing of emergency lighting is essential to ensure that it is functioning properly. Testing involves simulating a power outage to activate the emergency lighting system and ensuring that all lighting fixtures are working correctly. Testing should be done at least once a month with a more in-depth test carried out annually, the results should be recorded in a logbook.

During a test, it is important to check the following:

  1. All emergency lighting fixtures are operational.
  2. All fixtures are properly positioned and oriented.
  3. Batteries are charged and functioning properly.
  4. The emergency lighting system is activated automatically in the event of a power outage.
  5. The emergency lighting system provides adequate illumination for safe evacuation.

If any issues are found during an emergency lighting test they should be addressed as soon as possible.
