There are three main types of emergency lighting.

Escape route lighting - ensures that the main escape routes of a building during an emergency are clearly identifiable and sufficiently illuminated reducing panic or confusion.

Open area lighting - often referred to as anti-panic lighting, this ensures there is sufficient lighting to enable building occupants to reach a place where an escape route can be identified. Open area lighting applies to floor areas larger than 60m².

High risk task lighting - this provides higher levels of illumination to allow potentially dangerous processes to be shut down or stopped prior to evacuation, for example turning off machinery or equipment, can also be used in locations such as kitchens.

Whether you have a new requirement or an existing system already in place, rest assured you’re in experienced hands.  Our emergency lighting systems are designed & maintained in line with guidance from BS5266.
