The purpose of emergency lighting is to ensure that lighting is provided promptly, automatically and for a suitable time when the normal power supply to the lighting fails to ensure that people within the building can evacuate safely in the event of an emergency.
Health and Safety legislation requires all commercial and public premises to have an emergency lighting installation that complies with BS5266:2004 which recommends that emergency lighting systems be regularly serviced by competent persons.
Implementation of a periodic system of inspection and testing ensures that emergency lighting systems remain reliable at all times and legislation is complied with.
Whether you already have a testing and maintenance programme in place or are starting from scratch we are able to help you fulfil your safety obligations by providing a reliable and cost effective inspection and testing service.
For the majority of our clients we provide annual inspection, testing and certification of emergency lighting, We can also supply standard or bespoke log books so that following the full annual test a designated member of your staff can quickly and easily perform monthly checks using an easy to follow tick box style log book or we can incorporate it into one of our cost effective scheduled maintenance plans.

- Luminaire duration testing
