Emergency lighting: crucial for quick and effective evacuation
In an emergency, everyone must be able to leave your building quickly and safely. That sounds simple, but when disaster strikes many are still unable to reach emergency exits in time. What seems an easy route in daylight becomes a deadly trap when there is a power failure or smoke. Especially for those unfamiliar with your building.
Emergency lighting primarily serves to ensure the safety of persons in a public building or at the workplace. The emergency lighting, more specifically the emergency evacuation lighting, enables those present to leave the building or the workplace in a safe manner.
The installation also has an important function in preventing panic. Emergency lighting is installed for use when the power supply of the normal lighting fails.Annual maintenance ensures optimum operation of the emergency lighting.
