How often does emergency lighting need to be tested?
Emergency lighting systems should be tested monthly, to ensure that they are still working and producing an acceptable amount of light.
Do I have to have emergency lighting?
Emergency lighting is part of the fire safety in a building. As noted by the Industry Committee for Emergency Lighting: “The legal requirement is that non-domestic buildings must be safe at all times, even if mains power failure occurs. Therefore, nearly all such buildings must have emergency lighting fitted.”
How many emergency lights are required?
The amount of lights required depends on the size and layout of your building. Ensure corridors, stairways, doorways and exits all have the amount of emergency lighting needed to provide safe and orderly evacuation.
What’s the difference between maintained and non-maintained emergency lights?
Maintained emergency lights are constantly on and stay lit for the minimum emergency duration. A non-maintained emergency light will only light up when a mains power failure occurs but will also stay lit for the minimum emergency duration, which is usually 3 hours.
What is the minimum lux level on emergency lighting?
Emergency lighting should provide 10% of the normal lighting level at the hazard, with a minimum of 15 Lux.
What does a red light on an emergency light mean?
A red flashing LED indicates faulty batteries. A permanent red light indicates a lamp fault.
