Emergency Lighting

It is a well-known fact that Discount Fire Extinguishers stock a huge range of fire safety products which include all you need in emergency lighting, whether its batteries, bulkheads, switches, or portables we have them all. It is amazing how little light is needed to keep people calm and guide them to safety in the event of an emergency. As technology advances the power needed to produce a safely lit escape route has reduced immensely.

Emergency lighting is normally used in commercial, industrial and high occupancy residential buildings as a safety precaution in the event of loss of power, so that people will be able to find their way out of a building safely. Exit signs, which are mandatory in these buildings, are often used in conjunction with the emergency lighting system that is in place.

Emergency Lighting Additional Information

As we know emergency light is designed to come on when the normal power supply goes out for some reason. Every model, therefore, must be fitted with some sort of a battery or generator system that could provide electricity to the lights during a power outage. The earliest types of emergency lighting had incandescent light bulbs which could dimly light an area during a blackout and only just provided enough light to guide you safely while you evacuated the building. It was quickly realized, however, that a more focused, brighter, and longer-lasting light source was needed. Today the modern emergency floodlight provides a high-luminous, wide-coverage light that can brighten an area quite well. Some lights are halogen type, and provide a light source and intensity similar to that of a motor car headlight.

Your emergency lighting system should form part of the overall fire and safety system of your building. Other equipment such as Fire Extinguishers and Fire Alarms can also be purchased from Discount Fire Extinguishers.
