Emergency and exit lighting serve a very important purpose. Many people think of emergency exits as exits for people to escape in case of an emergency. This is not the case. They serve an important purpose for safety. The sole objective of emergency exit lights is to help people safely get out of a building in case of an emergency. The building’s exit lights are on, so people can see their way out, and they are bright enough to help you find the door quickly.
Electricians should test exit and emergency lights twice a year. If there is a fault in the system, for example, if an electrical fault is found, it must be fixed right away. When you replace lamps or fixtures, you must check that the exit signs are working properly when you’re done. Batteries, battery chargers, inverters, distribution and control equipment, and also luminaries need to be checked. They should be checked carefully with a system operation and automatic discharge facility check. This ensures that if and when the emergency exit sign needs to be used, they will provide a clear path to the exit for all occupants.Get a Quote Call Us
There are rules about who can install exit lights and how they need to be installed. The Australian Building Code requires that an exit lighting system be installed. People close to the exit must see it, and be located in the corridor, passage, stairwell, lobby area and other similar exit areas, and the floor has a building area of more than 300 square meters. The lights must automatically connect to the power in the event of a power failure to operate for up to 90 minutes, with highly visible letters and symbols and located on, above or adjacent to every door providing an escape.
