Emergency exit and area lighting strategy

The emergency lighting serves the purpose of illuminating the area that will be used in case people need to exit the building in an emergency. Emergency can be power outage, natural disaster or any other situation.

It also covers the lighting of the areas where people will gather immediately during or after the emergency, provided the area is within the private building ownership that is being serviced. The area is referred as muster point, assembly area or gathering area.

Legal requirements

There are certain legal requirements that need to be covered during installation and or maintenance of emergency lighting systems and exit signs including the areas.
We will ensure that while your commercial building is being installed with the emergency signs and systems, the legal structure is properly followed.

Simply thinking

Exit signs are required by law to be put in all commercial buildings. Exit signs are lit 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year.

What type of bulb you should use?

Simply thinking, one with the longest life, best light output when required and least power consumption is the answer here.
