Emergency lighting is important in situations where there is an issue with the main power supply and the normal lighting stops working. Our team can install, as well as test and maintain your current emergency lighting installation. 

Lighting can be cut off for many reasons including a power cut, a fire or simply because there is a faulty lighting system. The problem is when the darkness causes a potential hazard, which is why you need emergency lighting services.

Emergency Lighting inspections, testing & maintenance 

After we've installed your emergency lighting system, we also provide emergency lighting testing packages that offer hands-on expertise to ensure all components are working including switches, batteries, luminaries and control equipment. Your emergency lighting systems should be checked by a ‘responsible person’ on a monthly basis to ensure that it is in perfect working order.
  • Daily emergency lighting inspections – this only applies to systems with one central backup battery systems/emergency generator. It requires a daily emergency light inspection of indicators on the primary power supply to ensure it's in a ready condition.
  • Monthly emergency lighting tests – All emergency lighting systems should be tested monthly and the duration should be sufficient to ensure that each of your emergency lights powers on when you switch your main power supply off. Our team will also ensure that your emergency system is fully charging and keep a logbook to keep a record of your results.
  • Annual emergency lighting tests – This is a test for the full rated duration of the emergency lighting solutions at least once every year. If your emergency light is supposed to give you three full hours of light when the mains power goes off, the test has to last for at least three hours. It must be recorded and any failures corrected as soon as possible.
