Emergency Lighting

The Purpose of emergency lighting is to ensure that in the event of a power failure people can evacuate the building safely.  

Emergency lighting systems must: 

  • provide adequate illumination of escape route signs 
  • provide enough light along the escape routes to allow them to be used safely in the event of a power failure
  • ensure that fire alarms call points and fire equipment provided along the escape routes can be easily seen 
  • permit operations concerned with safety measures

Types of Emergency Lights


Emergency lighting is designed to turn on in the event of a power failure. It is linked into the building’s lighting circuitry and reacts to a power failure ensuring emergency exit routes remain illuminated. 


Emergency lighting is designed to be lit continuously and will continue to work even in the event of a power failure. 
This allows the unit to double as a standard light fitting but still supply the necessary backup in the event of a power outage. 

Emergency exit signs can also be lit to act as an emergency light. Again they can be maintained or non-maintained. 

Emergency Lighting maintenance

The law requires that all fire safety equipment must be maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair. This includes emergency lights.

Emergency lights should be tested monthly and should also be subject to an annual maintenance inspection and drain test.
