Emergency lighting

So, what is emergency lighting?

Put simply, emergency lighting is a form of lighting that normally comes on automatically when the power supply to the normal lighting fails.

Emergency lighting is a general term and is divided into emergency escape lighting and standby lighting.

Emergency escape lightingthat part of an emergency lighting system that provides illumination for the safety of people leaving a location or attempting to terminate a potentially dangerous process beforehand. It is part of the fire safety provision of a building and a requirement of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Standby lightingthat part of an emergency lighting system provided to enable normal activities to continue substantially unchanged. Standby lighting is not subject to legislation and is generally used within hospital etc when normal light levels are required to operate the building.

Emergency escape lighting is itself divided into escape route lighting, open area lighting and high risk task area lighting.

Escape route lighting– that part of an emergency escape lighting system provided to ensure that the means of escape can be effectively identified and safely used by occupants of the building. This is the most generally used and the type that most people and familiar with.

Open area lighting(in some countries known as anti-panic lighting) – that part of an emergency escape  lighting system provided to minimise panic and ensure there is sufficient illumination to allow the occupants of a building to reach a place where an escape route can be identified.

High risk task area lighting– that part of an emergency escape lighting system that provides        illumination for the safety of people involved in a potentially dangerous process or situation and to enable proper shut-down procedures for the safety of the operator and other occupants of the premises.
