Emergency Lighting FAQs


What is Emergency Lighting?

Emergency Lighting is a general term to describe two sub-categories of lighting system that will switch on automatically when a building experiences a power outage. It provides illumination and directions in order for any occupants to exit safely.

What types of Emergency Lighting are there?

There are two types of Emergency Lighting systems: Maintained – This is where the luminaires remain on all the time and Non-maintained – This is where the luminaires will only kick in if the normal lighting fails.

When does my Emergency Lighting need to be tested?

Monthly:
Emergency lighting systems are to be tested on a monthly basis. The test is a short test in accordance with BS 5266-1: 2011:

“The period of simulated failure should be sufficient for the purpose of this test whilst minimising damage to the system components e.g. lamps. During this period, all luminaires and signs shall be checked to ensure that they are present, clean and functioning correctly. A record of the test must be recorded in the emergency lighting log book.”

Annually:
Testing for the rated duration of the emergency lights must be carried out on an annual basis. The emergency light luminaires must still be illuminated at the end of this test.

What happens next?

Results of the test are to be recorded (If you do not have a Log Book we can create one for you) and if failures are detected they must be remedied as soon as is reasonably possible. Once we have completed the tests and Log Book a quotation for any required work will be issued to you.
