Types of Emergency Lighting
Emergency lighting consists of battery-powered lighting that automatically switches on in the case of a power failure. There are a number of different types of emergency lighting present in buildings.
Exits lights are designed to illuminate exit routes from a building during an emergency. Exit lights are a critical safety component of a buildings fire safety. In comparison, standby lights automatically switch on during an outage to allow for regular activities to continue.
Emergency Lighting Testing
In Australia, emergency lighting is required in almost all buildings to be compliant with Australian standards. This lighting must be placed on any commercial or government building that is occupied by customers, members of the general public and employees.
It’s also necessary for multi-residential buildings. This includes hospitals, schools, offices, shopping centres, car parks, bars, restaurants, hotels, sporting venues, warehouses, hallways, foyers, industrial buildings, and apartments and condominiums.
In accordance with Australian standards AS/NZ 2293.2 it’s a requirement for emergency lighting to be tested every 6 months. This is to ensure that there are no malfunctioning lights or burned out lightbulbs.
Most lights will run on batteries if necessary, but they need to be checked every 6 months as well. A maintenance history should be kept to record regular and ad hoc maintenance.
