In a power cut, your normal lighting will go out and emergency lighting will automatically come on – it's an essential part of workplace safety

Properly installed and maintained emergency lighting ensures your staff are safe at all times.

If your emergency lighting system fails, you run the risk of:

  • Staff being unable to find the exit in the event of a fire
  • Someone tripping up while trying to escape
  • In a worst case scenario, no lighting at all for staff in a power cut caused by a fire

Emergency lighting comprises three different types:

  • Escape route lighting
  • Open area lighting
  • High risk task area lighting

To comply with emergency lighting regulations, it’s important to have the right type of lighting in the right areas, including fire exit signs.

It’s also sensible to have emergency lighting testing carried out on a regular basis, to ensure your existing system is functioning according to the regulations.

Our experienced team of electricians will check all the tubes or LED chips are working properly, and that the back-up batteries are still able to maintain lighting for the required amount of time.

We cover Hampshire’s main towns and cities including Southampton, Portsmouth, Basingstoke, Andover, Fareham, Eastleigh, Gosport, Farnborough, Aldershot, Winchester, Totton and Havant. We also install lighting in Wiltshire, Dorset, Berkshire, Surrey and West Sussex.

Escape route lighting

This type of lighting, including illuminated fire exit signs, is designed to get you out of the building safely.

In a power cut, you should be able to look around you and quickly locate a fire exit sign.

After the first fire exit, you may then see further fire exit signs, depending on how big the building is and where you are located. Eventually, the last fire exit will lead you outside to safety.

Fire Exit Signs

Open area lighting

Open area emergency lighting is designed to light up areas and routes which you can follow to reach fire exits.

This type of lighting allows you to see where you are going and avoid trip hazards.

Fire escape routes should be free of low level trip hazards in any case, but open area lighting gives you reassurance you can leave the building in an orderly manner.

LED emergency lights are now the norm, replacing older fluorescent tubes.

Emergency Lighting Testing

Emergency lighting certificate

After having your lighting tested, you will be issued with an emergency lighting certificate. You should keep this in a safe place. An inspector or insurance company may ask to see it.

Your existing emergency lighting certificate should also be shown to the electrical company that comes out to test your lighting in the future. Comply with the regulations – arrange your survey now.
