What is Emergency Lighting?

An emergency lighting system is designed to assist any persons in the building with locating or navigating to exits in the event of an emergency, such as an evacuation scenario. For example, exit signs is an emergency light.

Emergency lights plays a critical role in building safety, providing prompts, automatic lighting in an emergency situation where the main power supply is cut, and illumination should the normal mains lighting fail.

What are the two main types of emergency lighting?

Emergency lights, such as exit signs or lighting in car parks, are made as two main types: 

  • Maintained emergency lighting, which is always on and switches automatically to battery powered emergency output when the main power fails.
  • Non-maintained emergency lights are not normally lit, but they activate only when the main power fails.

Emergency Lighting Testing

In order to be compliant with Australian standards for emergency lighting requirements, your exit and emergency lighting needs to be tested every six months. 

The test simulates a power failure to ensure all exit and emergency lights run for 90 minutes on battery. The results are recorded in a paper or digital log book, including details of the duration test, maintenance history and if any defects were found. 

Who can test emergency lighting?

An appropriately qualified person, such as a licensed electrician, who is familiar with the AS/NZS2293 standards should test and inspect the components of your emergency lighting.
