Emergency Lighting

Emergency lighting is battery-backed lighting that switches on automatically when the building’s main power supply is cut, enabling all occupants to evacuate the premises safely.

The battery needs to power the light fitting for a minimum of 3 hours. To conserve power, the light output from the fitting is reduced, often to 10% of the normal light output.

There are different types of emergency light fittings:

Maintained:
These operate as a normal light fitting and are controlled with all the other lights in the area, however when the power fails the maintained emergency fitting will
continue to operate.

Non-Maintained:
These are normally switched off, with their batteries being continuously charged and a green LED showing fully charged. When the power fails then the fitting switches on using its battery supply. Non-maintained fittings are not part of the
general lighting but are fittings such as emergency exit signs.
