Emergency Lighting plays a major role in ensuring the safety of workers, residents and all building occupants when emergencies happen.
The type and number of emergency lights installed in a building depends upon the buildings interior space layout, the floor plan area, type of installation & other specific requirements.
Power failures occur at any time. Being well prepared is the key to safety. Emergency Lighting is a critical part of any building installation. Emergency lighting ensures lighting will be available and helps to prevent accidents and injuries when power fails and the main lights go out.
Emergency Lighting Systems help occupants in locating the exits and escape routes. Power Failure and loss of lighting may occur any time. In the case of fires, the risk of injury arising as occupants evacuate to safety can be very high. Emergency lighting systems used in conjunction with other fire safety alarm systems helps to reduce injuries and possible loss of life.
Classifications of Emergency Lighting Systems are divided into four main groups:
|Non-Maintained Emergency Lighting Systems:
Non-Maintained Lighting Systems are also known as Standby Emergency Lights. The standby emergency lights are not illuminated during normal main power supply, but are automatically powered by an internal stored separate battery in the event of main power failure.
|Maintained Emergency Lighting Systems:
These types of emergency lights are always powered / illuminated during normal main power supply. In the event of a power failure, the Maintained Emergency Lighting Systems lights remain illuminated by automatically getting switched to an internal stored separate battery when power is cut off.
|Sustained Emergency Lighting Systems:
Sustained Emergency Lighting Systems function through having at least two or more emergency lights / lamps powered during normal main power operation. In the event of a power failure, one of the lamps remains illuminated by automatically getting switched to an internal stored separate battery.
|Centralized Emergency Lighting Systems:
Centralized Emergency Lighting System function as a Collective Emergency Lighting system. Centralized Emergency Lighting Systems use a central unit comprised of a collective bank of batteries connected to single power converter that converts battery voltage to 120V.
Centralized Emergency Lighting Systems are viewed by Industrial Safety experts as the most reliable and practical systems.
