Emergency Lighting

Emergency ExitsWhat is Emergency Lighting?
Emergency lights are self contained units that are wired into the mains, but have the benefit of battery backup which enables them to remain illuminated should the mains power fail. The batteries can either be carried within the body of the individual light or accessed by lights via an independent wired circuit. The batteries are kept charged via the mains.

What Standards should be observed in Emergency Lighting?
These systems should conform to BS 5266, and BS5588

What is a maintained Emergency Lighting?
This type remains illuminated and works normally via the mains, should the mains fail, batteries will keep the unit illuminated for at least 1 - 3 hours.

SmokeWhat is a non-maintained Emergency Light?
This type is not ordinarily illuminated, but will automatically illuminate should mains power fail.

Why do I need such lights?
Because in the event of a power fail you must ensure your building is evacuated safely and quickly and the escape routes and emergency exits need to be illuminated to achieve this.

Do I need to have theses emergency lights maintained?
Yes, a Maintenance Contract is available from Minder and our Engineer will make a visit annually to check your systems out.

Exit SignsI have seen green signs in buildings pointing towards the emergency exits, do I need these?
Signage is all part and parcel of such a system whether they are a type of luminaireor a simple stand alone plastic sign in an area lit by an emergency light.

I have people on the premises with special needs, do I have to cater for them Under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 as amended in 2004?
Yes you must, it is an issue which should be brought to the attention of our surveyor so that he can advise on alterations necessary, your Fire Strategy must protect their interests also.
