Emergency Lighting is the provision of lighting along exit routes in the event of a power failure or emergency to assist occupants with the safe exit from a building. Lighting levels and building requirements for emergency lighting are governed by the Fire Safety Order (FSO), the Health & Safety at Work Act and Building Regulations specified to the location of the premises. The British Standard BS 5266-1: 2016 recommends the standard required, and EN 1838 governs the product standard that should be installed.
At Sygma Fire Services, we work with you to recommend design and installation solutions based on the emergency exit plan developed in your Fire Risk Assessment. Our solutions can vary from fully integrated systems that also provide programmable low lighting for periods of reduced occupation (such as overnight) to stand alone systems that function only in power failure scenarios.
Our systems that we install are state of the art low voltage, intelligent lighting units which communicate with the control hub, reporting on their charge and operational state at regular intervals. The system is therefore able to identify issues and failures at the earliest possible point in time, reducing downtime and extensive maintenance costs. The nature of the low voltage output also has significant cost benefits in regard to operational costs and help companies to reduce their environment emissions footprint.
Our Lighting Designer & Qualified Engineers can assist you with:
- Fully specified system design
- System installation and commission
- Regular preventative maintenance visits
- Maintenance contracts to cover out of hours and corrective maintenance on systems
