Why Get Emergency Lighting Installed?
The purpose of emergency lighting is to ensure the lighting is provided promptly, automatically and for a suitable time when the normal power supply to the lighting fails. The use of emergency lighting ensures that people within the building can evacuate safely in the event of an emergency. Emergency lighting can be powered by means of local self-contained batteries mounted within the emergency luminaire. An alternative method is to use a central battery wired via a dedicated network to the emergency fittings.
To show and direct people to the safest way out of a building, emergency lighting illuminates the primary route of escape in the event of an emergency. When this situation occurs the most important thing is that people remain calm. This is difficult to achive if there is a lack of a clear escape route. This can lead to people being trapped inside the building. For this reason and many others, it is absolutely imperative that the fastest escape route is well illuminated.
As far as legalities go, owners of commercial or public buildings are legally obliged to install and maintain emergency lighting systems inside their premises. In addition to this, strict regulatory requirements laid down in IS3217:2013 (Irish emergency lighting standards) need to be adhered to. This means that property owners are responsible for ensuring that both quarterly inspections and annual tests are carried out. They are also responsible that these are recorded in the appropriate log book.
