Emergency lighting is designed to provide effective illumination when the power is out.
Emergency lighting plays an essential role in helping your staff and visitors safely exit your Huddersfield property in an emergency. Under the Regulatory Reform Act commercial premises are required to have emergency lighting that conforms to BS 5266. A qualified emergency lighting electrician can design and install effective, compliant emergency lighting. If you need a qualified emergency lighting electrician in Huddersfield, JP Electrical are here to help.
Qualified Emergency Lighting Electrician
There are strict rules and regulations that the emergency lighting in your Huddersfield property must comply with. An experienced and qualified emergency lighting electrician will have a thorough knowledge of what is legally required and will design a fully compliant installation. Leaving the installation of your emergency lighting to an unqualified electrician puts you in danger of failing future Health and Safety Inspections. This leaves you at risk of both a fine and possible prosecution. You will also have to bear the cost to install new emergency lighting. It makes sense to choose a qualified emergency lighting electrician from the beginning to save you both time and money. JP Electrical are experienced, fully qualified emergency lighting electricians and will ensure a safety conscious, compliant installation at your Huddersfield area premises.
Types of Emergency Lighting
When your emergency lighting electrician is designing your system, they will use a combination of maintained and non-maintained emergency lighting. Maintained emergency lighting is mains powered lighting that is illuminated under normal conditions. In the event of an emergency, it carries a back-up battery which enables it to remain alight for up to 3 hours. Non-maintained emergency lighting only switches on during a mains power failure. Using a combination of these emergency lighting types ensures your lighting can function effectively in any emergency.
Your emergency lighting electrician will also use various styles of emergency lighting. This may include bulkhead lighting, recessed lighting, decorative luminaries, or spotlights for high ceilinged or large spaces. They will use different styles based on the space they need to illuminate and their intended function.
LED Emergency Lighting
LED emergency lighting is far superior in terms of performance and visibility to fluorescent and halogen emergency lights. When planning the installation for your Huddersfield property an experienced lighting electrician will recommend you use LED emergency lighting as a matter of course.
The benefits of LED emergency lighting include:
- A 50,000-hour lifespan compared to up to 6000 hours for traditional emergency lights.
- Reduced maintenance and therefore lower costs.
- Energy efficient. LED emergency lighting can reduce your energy usage by an average of 60%.
- Available in a variety of styles and colours to suit all premises.
