This involves carrying out the monthly testing on your behalf, taking away the headache and responsibility of ensuring your system is in full working order.
Duration of Emergency Lighting
When installing a new emergency lighting system, first you need to assess the time require to evacuate the premises. Which depends entirely upon the size and complexity of the building. The minimum duration of escape system emergency lighting is 1 hour, if the premises is likely to be evacuated immediately after a power failure.
For residential properties, or areas where evacuation is not instant (such as accommodation), the emergency lighting system should last for at least 3 hours.
If you are unsure as to the level of emergency lighting that you require, please contact the team at Abatis today. The BS 5266 guide also contains detailed information on this.
