An emergency light is a battery powered device that comes on automatically when a building experiences a power outage. The batteries are kept charged by the buildings mains power supply. There are two main types of emergency lighting, firstly the “maintained” unit which remains illuminated and works via the mains. Should the mains power fail, this unit will stay illuminated for at least 1 to 3 hours. The second type is the “non maintained” unit which is not ordinarily illuminated but will illuminate should the mains power fail.
We are able to supply and install both types in line with your properties requirements ensuring you comply with the guidance of your fire risk assessment. We can also provide you with the required maintenance of these products which should conform to the current British Standard BS5266 & BS5588 providing two visits per annum.
