Emergency Lighting

Sitewatch can provide your business with a complete range of self contained emergency light fittings.

This will allow your business to have a battery operated device which will automatically turn over from the mains power to battery if your building ever has a power failure. This will provide your business with a sufficient amount of illumination which will ensure that people working in the building are able to evacuate safely and efficiently.

Sitewatch can offer you a range of emergency light fittings whether it is bulkheads or exit boxed signs.

Testing the emergency lights ensures that the lamp (lighting tube) and the back-up battery are in good working order and can last the full emergency duration.

Emergency lighting is lighting for an emergency situation when the main power supply is cut and any normal illumination fails. The loss of mains electricity could be the result of a fire or a power cut and the normal lighting supplies fail. This may lead to sudden darkness and a possible danger to the occupants, either through physical danger or panic.

Emergency lighting is normally 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 in accordance with 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.
