Emergency Systems

The purpose of emergency lighting is to provide light in the event of a mains or local power supply failure.

The emergency lighting design must take into account the following:

  • Escape route signs
  • Stairs so that each flight receives direct light
  • Changes in floor level
  • Changes of escape route direction
  • Corridor intersections
  • First aid posts
  • Fire alarm call points or pieces of fire fighting equipment
  • Outside the final exit door and to a place of safety
  • Moving stairways and walkways
  • Toilet facilities exceeding 8m² or any multiple closet facility without borrowed light
  • Toilet facilities for disabled use
  • Motor generator, control and plant rooms
  • All other areas as deemed by the Risk Assessment
  • Manual release controls for electronically locked doors
  • Escape equipment for disabled people
  • Refuges and call points, including disabled toilet call positions
