EMERGENCY LIGHTING IN NORTH WEST ENGLAND
Emergency Lighting Manchester
The loss of mains electricity could be the result of a fire or a power cut, and the standard lighting supplies fail. This may lead to sudden darkness and a possible danger to the occupants, either through physical danger or panic. Emergency lighting Manchester is a situation when the main power supply is cut, and any natural illumination fails.
Why Emergency Lighting Manchester ??
Emergency lighting is usually required to operate fully automatically and give illumination of a sufficiently high level to enable all occupants to evacuate the premises safely. Most new buildings now have emergency lighting installed during construction; the design and type of equipment being specified by the architect following current Building Regulations and any local authority requirements.
The British Standard provides the emergency lighting designer with clear guidelines to work to. BS 5266-1: 2011 embraces residential hotels, clubs, hospitals, nursing homes, schools and colleges, licensed premises, offices, museums, shops, multi-storey dwellings, etc. Although this standard recommends the types and durations of emergency lighting systems relating to each category of premises, it should be remembered that the standards are the minimum safe standards for these types of building and that a higher standard may be required for a particular installation.
Emergency lighting Manchester is required to be tested at regular intervals. We will attend and advise you of a service routine that suits you and your building requirements. This can be annually or more frequently if required.
Emergency lighting Manchester can be ‘maintained’; i.e. on all the time, or ‘non-maintained’; i.e. usually off and only operates when the standard lighting fails.
Emergency lights should operate for one, two or three hours. Depending on the application, but in practice, most emergency lights are three hours.
Whatever type of emergency lighting you already have in place, Fire Safety services provide maintenance plans to suit.
Emergency lights will also provide some use in the premises during a power failure other than in an emergency.
All our work complies to British Standards – BS5266.
