Lighting for Emergency

Explore the crucial considerations of emergency lighting to ensure that your facility is safe and compliant.

Emergency Lighting is essential for the safety of occupants in all buildings where people meet. Under the Regulatory Reform Order (Fire Safety) 2005 it is a legal requirement and should be installed and tested in line with BS 5266:1 2016. In the event of a mains failure the emergency lighting system, including signage, should provide adequate lighting levels and directional indication to allow the occupant to move safely around the building, and exit if necessary, without accident or injury. Emergency Lighting is an essential part of a building safety system and is the responsibility of the building owner, occupier or manager to ensure compliance.

e-Connect

Automatic, self-testing of emergency lighting installations for large buildings and estates such as schools, universities, factories and public buildings is considered essential. The Tamlite e-CONNECT system is a flexible and professional, autonomous emergency testing system that allows scheduled maintenance programmes to be carried out.

Emergency Lighting Compliance

Did you know that you are obliged to check that emergency lighting complies with legal requirements? In any environment in which people meet or sleep, the emergency lighting must be compliant with the relevant standards and legislation. This applies to retail buildings, places of work, hotels and rented properties. As a necessary requirement, building owners must be aware of what they need to do in order to achieve a compliant, safe building.

Requirements include:

  • Fire risk assessment
  • Emergency luminaires comply with BS EN 60598-2-22
  • Signage complies with ISO 7010
  • Illumination level complies with BS 5266
  • Testing complies with BS 5266

Failure to comply with the above will result in a significant fine or potential jail sentence, so it pays to be diligent with emergency lighting. Download our free emergency lighting checklist, to make sure your building, business or property is fully compliant.
