Emergency Lighting provides automatic illumination to allow the safe evacuation from the building, should there be a loss of mains electricity or the failure of the normal lighting systems.
Emergency lighting schemes fall into two categories, namely Maintained and Non-Maintained.
Maintained: the emergency light units are illuminated at all times, using the same lamps for both normal and emergency operation. This lighting would normally be on a dedicated circuit with a central isolation and test facility.
Non-maintained: the emergency light units only illuminate in the event of a mains failure. This lighting would be from independent lighting circuits with a means of isolation and test points
Consilium will only ever install lighting products that have been designed and manufactured to meet current legislation.
