Emergency lighting is used in case there is an unexpected power fail. These lights are designed to automatically switch on when they detect that there has been a power failure. These light fittings include a battery pack with a 3-hour minimum battery life. To help conserve the battery life, the light that is distributed by emergency lighting tends to be 10% of the normal light that is put out. These emergency lights are beneficial as they not only provide a reliable source of light in the case of an emergency, but they are very cheap and quick to install. However, you must charge the light for a full 24 hours to ensure that the battery is full, before testing the light to make sure that it remains on for the minimum time required.
There are 2 main types of emergency light fittings: Maintained Fitting and Non-Maintained Fitting. However, many lights have the ability to perform both functions.
Maintained fitting is when the lights are used as a regular light, being used at the same time as the other lights within the building, however, when the other lights switch off due to a power failure, these lights will continue to run at a lower light level.
Non-Maintained lights are usually kept switched off, with their batteries being constantly charged, with a green coloured LED light showing when the battery is fully charged. These lights are switched on automatically when there is a power cut within the building, using their battery supply, these lights are typically in the form of emergency exit signs, as opposed to the regular lights within the building.
Every building is legally required to own sufficient emergency lighting. This is in case of an emergency. Each building must be able to provide a safe escape from the building that is clearly visible due to their emergency lights, which have to be at a minimum of around 60 watts. The owner must check these emergency lighting regularly to ensure maximum protection for those within the building, and the building itself, these maintenance checks only consist of light cleaning and a periodic test.
