In a moment of crisis, emergency lighting is pivotal. Based in Wymondham, Norfolk, our company provides an extensive range of emergency illumination solutions, including emergency exit lights that help people to identify escape routes when doing so is essential.
Normally, it is required that emergency lighting operates automatically. In addition, it must provide a level of illumination that is sufficient for all occupants to evacuate the premises safely. Most new buildings now have emergency lighting installed during construction. The design and type of equipment to be used is specified by the architect in accordance with current building regulations, as well as any local authority requirements.

British Standards provides emergency lighting designers with clear guidelines to comply with. BS 5266-1: 2011 encompasses offices, museums, shops, and multi-storey dwellings. Although this standard recommends the types and durations of emergency lighting systems as they relate to each category of premises, it should be remembered that the standards are the minimum safe standards for these types of building – a higher standard may be required for any particular installation.
Emergency lighting is lighting that automatically activates when the power supply to normal lighting systems fails. “Emergency lighting” is a general term, and is sub-divided into emergency escape lighting and standby lighting.
Emergency escape lighting is that part of an emergency lighting system which 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 the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
Standby lighting is that part of an emergency lighting system provided to enable normal activities to continue substantially unchanged. This guide does not include standby lighting, as it is not a legal requirement and is a facility that may or may not be needed depending on the use and occupancy of the premises.
Emergency escape lighting is itself sub-divided into escape route lighting, open-area lighting, and high-risk task area lighting. Escape route lighting is that part of an emergency escape lighting system which is provided to ensure that the means of escape can be effective identified and safely used by occupants of the building.
