With such a large open plan office and over 200 employees to keep safe, ensuring that the emergency lighting systems were upgraded throughout Sandwell Council House was paramount.
The emergency lighting system was upgraded throughout the offices. In addition to emergency exit signs, recessed emergency downlights were installed around the working spaces and meeting rooms. The right emergency lighting ensures that people remain calm and quickly exit the building in the event of a severe emergency, such as a fire.
Emergency lighting can also be used to allow people to continue working inside the building in the event of a power cut or non-threatening loss of mains power.
As the large office space is substantially above 60m2, it requires an illumination level of 0.5 lux on the ground in order for people to quickly identify and make their way to escape routes. High output emergency luminaires highlight escape routes for occupants, ensuring that the building is a safe place to work.
