Emergency Lighting

Emergency lighting provides illumination in the event off failure of the supply to normal lighting.

We specify, supply and install all kinds of emergency lighting, categorised as follows:

Emergency Escape Lighting


Emergency escape lighting is provided to enable safe exit in the event of mains power supply failure. It forms part of a building’s fire protection system.

Standby Lighting

Standby lighting enables normal activities to continue in the event of mains power supply failure. It does not provide fire protection unless it meets the same equipment, design and installation requirements as emergency escape lighting systems

Escape Route Lighting


Escape route lighting enables safe exit for a building’s occupants by providing appropriate visual conditions and direction finding on escape routes and in special areas/locations such as corridors and stairs. It also ensures that fire fighting and safety equipment can be readily located and used.

Open Area (or Anti Panic) Lighting

Open area or panic lighting reduces the likelihood of panic and enables safe movement of occupants towards escape routes by providing appropriate visual conditions and direction finding. It is normally used in large rooms such as school halls.

High Risk Task Area Lighting

High risk task area lighting ensures the safety of people involved in potentially dangerous processes or situations. It also enables proper shutdown procedures to be carried out for the safety of the premises’ other occupants.
