Emergency & Exit Lighting
What is emergency lighting? Emergency lighting operates automatically when a lighting circuit loses the mains power supply.Emergency lighting falls into two categories:
This illuminates exit routes and open areas. In summary:
• Exit routes must be clearly lit and signed
to ensure people can evacuate the
• Open area lighting is designed to reduce
confusion and panic, whilst ensuring
visibility of the nearest exit route. Escape
lighting also enables employees to shut
down sensitive or potentially dangerous
processes before evacuating.
Standby lighting allows normal activities to continue if the main lighting fails for any reason. An application such as an operating theatre or an air traffic control centre would require standby lighting.
These illustrations show exactly where you must locate emergency lighting and signage.
Step 1 – Exit Signage Signage must be placed to provide a clear and unambiguously marked route to the final exit.
Step 2 – Mandatory Points Emergency fittings must be installed at certain mandatory points to provide essential light. As shown in the diagram above, these points include changes of level, intersections of corridors, fire-fighting equipment and first aid posts.
Step 3 – Infill Lighting In addition to the lighting of mandatory points, infill luminaires may be required to achieve the correct emergency lighting levels.
