Exit and Emergency Light Inspection and Maintenance

They are standard in almost any building – from hospitals, movie theatres to corporate dwellings – and are use to aid visibility to people so they can evacuate the premises and avoid panic situations.

The law requires establishments to have the three most common exit and emergency light installed on them. They are:

    • Emergency escape lighting
    • Illuminated exit signs
    • Standby or backup lighting

Where to install Exit and Emergency Lighting?

Signs and lighting units must be visibly placed to clearly show passage routes to the exits of the premises such as mezzanines, garages, stairs, etc.

You should pay particular attention to individual steps or spaces that have a sudden or unexpected level change, corridor intersections, or direction changes. You should also consider access points to fire alarms and any other areas that you as a business owner or manager think lighting in necessary.

Exit and Emergency Light Inspection and Maintenance

Correctly selecting and properly installing all necessary exit signs and emergency lighting is not the end. Beyond installation, did you know that in accordance to Australian Standards 2293.2, emergency lighting systems must be certified every six months?

Electrical Contractors
Equipment may have become physically damaged, wires may have been exposed or loosened, batteries may lose charge, and bulbs grow dimmer or finally stop working.

These 90-minute battery power down tests (or discharge tests) ensure that all exit and emergency lighting units are fully functional and batteries can sustain their charge for 90 minutes during an emergency or evacuation situation (like a power blackout or building fire).
