Emergency Light Service and Testing

Scheduled Servicing of Emergency Lighting Systems

Emergency lighting is a self-descriptive term and is lighting for an emergency situation when the main power supply fails. The loss of mains electricity could be the result of a fire or a power cut and the normal lighting supplies fail. This may lead to sudden darkness and a possible danger to the occupants, either through physical danger or panic.

Emergency lighting is normally required to operate fully automatically and give illumination of a sufficiently high level to enable persons of all ages to evacuate the premises safely. Most new buildings now have emergency lighting installed during construction, the design and type of equipment is normally specified by the relevant local authority, architect or consultant.

Non-maintained

The emergency light is only illuminated upon interruption of the mains supply.

Maintained

The emergency light uses the same source for both mains, which is usually switched and in emergency mode.

Sustained

The emergency light has a separate light source for both mains and emergency mode, for Emergency Lighting.

The primary reason for installing an emergency lighting system is to enable occupiers to exit a property safely in the event of a mains power cut leaving the occupiers in near or total darkness. The emergency systems also needs to meet fire safety legislation in a way that is visually acceptable and meets the user’s needs for ease of operation and maintenance. Consequently it is important to establish all the relevant legal requirements for emergency lighting and fire alarm systems before commencing the design, these should ideally be agreed between the system designer, user, fire authority, building control officer and system installer.

Servicing of the emergency lighting systems should be carried out at six monthly intervals for self contained luminaries in addition to a monthly flash test as stipulated in the British Standards BS EN 5266.
