Emergency Lights

Emergency lighting and illuminated signs play an integral part in fire safety evacuation. It is there to ensure that you can escape safely in a fire situation. In the event of a fire or power outage the emergency lighting system will activate on its own self-contained battery system, and this system will illuminate the escape route for a minimum of three hours as required by BS 5266 Part 1.

Failure to comply with annual testing of emergency lighting could breach insurance policies and fire safety regulations, and potentially lead to prosecutions.

Legislation

Legislation requires that the Responsible Person ensures that emergency routes and exits requiring illumination are provided with emergency lighting of adequate intensity in the case of failure of their normal lighting.

There are two types of emergency light systems that installed in premises:

NM/3 Non-Maintained. An emergency light will only illuminate on a loss of power to the circuit with a minimum duration of 3 hours.

M/3 Maintained. A dual use system illuminated at all times in public buildings. Guaranteed illumination on loss of power to the circuit with a minimum duration of 3 hours.
