Frequency Asked Questions

What is emergency lighting, and why is it important?

For British and European Standard BS EN 1838, emergency lighting is a general term for devices that provide normal lighting during a power failure. Emergency lighting allows people to move around safely and efficiently, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries during an emergency.

What types of emergency lighting systems are available in the UK?

Emergency lighting is classified into two types: emergency escape and standby.

Emergency escape lighting is the part of emergency lighting provided to allow a safe exit in the event of a power outage.

Standby lighting is the portion of emergency lighting that allows normal activities to continue during a power outage.

Are there specific regulations or standards that emergency lighting systems must comply with in the UK?

The Fire Safety Order 2005, which requires emergency lighting to be installed and maintained in all non-domestic buildings, is the UK’s main regulation for emergency lighting systems.

The British Standard BS 5266, in addition to the Fire Safety Order, guides the design, installation, and maintenance of emergency lighting systems in buildings.

The European Standard EN 1838 also guides on building emergency lighting.

How often should emergency lighting systems be tested and maintained?

Regular testing of emergency lighting is essential to ensure proper functionality during critical situations, with monthly functional tests and an annual full duration test being recommended practices to comply with safety standards and maintain system reliability.

What is the difference between maintained and non-maintained emergency lighting?

Maintained emergency Lighting is designed to operate continuously under normal conditions and in the event of a power outage or emergency. Non-maintained emergency lighting, on the other hand, is only intended to function in the event of an emergency or power outage.

Can emergency lighting be integrated with fire safety systems, such as fire alarms and sprinklers?

Emergency lighting can be integrated with fire safety systems such as fire alarms and sprinklers to provide a comprehensive safety solution.

How to test emergency lighting?

Turn off the main lighting to simulate a power outage. Analyse the emergency lighting to ensure that it adequately illuminates the area. Check that the lights are bright and functional. Ensure that the emergency lighting lasts long enough for occupants to evacuate the building safely.

Can emergency lighting be retrofitted to existing buildings, or is it only suitable for new builds?

Existing buildings can be retrofitted with emergency lighting, which is often a cost-effective way to improve the safety of older structures.

What is the expected lifespan of emergency lighting systems, and when should they be replaced?

Several factors, including component quality, system design, and frequency and quality of maintenance, determine the expected lifespan of an emergency lighting system. An emergency lighting system’s lifespan can range from five to ten years.

Is it possible to have emergency lighting that is both energy-efficient and compliant with safety regulations?

LED lighting technology is one way to achieve energy-efficient emergency lighting. Another option for energy-efficient emergency lighting is to use a system that includes advanced control technology such as sensors or timers.
