Emergency Lighting Requirements to BS 5266

Back in 2005 under the fire safety regulations it became law to have a working Emergency Lighting on all Commercial premises.

We can carry out a free survey to help you as a business owner be on the right side of the law and fulfil your legal requirements.

All systems must maintain a minimum of 3 hours lighting to aid an escape of a building safely in the event of a power cut.

There are different requirements in different parts of buildings and we can advise on this and carry out any works required.

Types of emergency Lighting

Emergency lighting comes in many forms from stand alone "brick lights" for over doors with direction signs to floodlight style for larger commercial buildings and light fittings that appear to be a normal looking light fitting but have battery packs built in so act as an emergency light.

Testing of Emergency Lights

It is required by law that the emergency lighting system installed is tested to ensure it is functional.

A log book is required to be kept and testing being done as a minimum of once a month quick test of a suggested 5 minutes period and an annual full discharge of the system to ensure it keeps illuminated for a minimum of 3 hours.

We can carry this out for you to ensure you comply with the law and your responsibilities.
