    What is Emergency Lighting?

    Emergency lighting is lighting that’s provided in the event of an emergency. Whether it’s a fire, earthquake, or anything else, emergency lighting provides occupants with the necessary light to escape the building safely.

    Since power outages are common during an emergency, emergency lighting has to be able to automatically turn on, and will need its own separate power source.
    Emergency lighting can generally be split into two main categories:

    • Emergency escape lighting – probably the one that most people are familiar with, it’s goal is to give sufficient lighting to allow people to escape an area or building while highlighting escape routes.
    • Standby lighting – this is used to allow activities to resume as normal in the event of a power outage.

    How do I install Emergency Lighting?

    These days, most buildings will have emergency lighting installed as part of the construction process. But there are still many older buildings that don’t have the necessary emergency lighting.

    To get emergency lighting installed, you’ll have to follow several steps. The first of these will be to do a fire risk assessment, which will identify any potential safety risks in the building and describe what procedures need to be implemented to tackle these.

    You can then begin to design your emergency lighting system around this. These designs should include what system is being used and the positioning of all the emergency lights.

    Finally, you need to plan the installation of the system, as well as the procedures of testing the system.

    But it’s worth noting that you should always hire a professional with the necessary qualifications to install the emergency light system for you. While electricians are able to do this as well, those with the relevant qualifications are likely to have additional training and experience which means they can install the system in the most effective and efficient way possible.

    Why should I get Emergency Lighting?

    It’s a legal requirement that any non-residential property, as well as the common areas of multiple occupancy dwellings, has sufficient emergency lighting for its occupants. Failure to meet emergency lighting requirements could result in a variety of punishments.

    But besides the fact that it’s a legal necessity, there are still several reasons why you should want emergency lighting for your building anyway, such as:

    • Protecting the occupants of your building in the event of an emergency.
    • Helps people locate safety equipment, which could help both them and the property.
    • Peace of mind, knowing that you’ve taken all possible steps to keep people safe and comply with the law.
    • Standby lighting can save your business money, by allowing you to work as usual during a power outage.

    What happens if I don’t have the necessary emergency lighting?

    If your building or business is legally required to have emergency lighting, you could face a variety of punishments for not complying. Firstly, you’re likely to receive a notice which details how you’re failing to comply. If you’re still not compliant, it’s possible that you could receive a fine, and in worse case scenarios, such as if injury was caused by your negligence, you could even face jail time.

    How much does emergency lighting cost?

    There are a range of costs involved in emergency lighting, such as installation and testing fees, energy costs, and the cost to buy the system in the first place. Due to all of this, putting a final figure on how much emergency lighting will cost you is hard to accurately do.

    Saving money, removing stress, and protecting lives

    As we’ve already mentioned, Emergency Lighting provides a host of benefits. You can save money by using standby lighting to continue business as usual, remove the stress of knowing you’ve taken all the necessary steps, and you can help protect lives.
