Emergency lighting really is essential. Every bit as essential in an emergency situation as any other safety system. Without emergency lighting, it might not be possible to safely evacuate your building by following the emergency exit lights.

Emergency lighting must always be fully functional and permanently ready for use.

What are some of the different types of emergency lighting available?

There are of course many different kinds of emergency lighting for the many different kinds of situation. Let's have a look at some of the most popular:

 

Temporary lighting (see also standby lighting). There are many different types of location that require that, even in a state of emergency when often, typically, there is no power, normal activity may be continued. Locations such as hospitals, fire stations or prisons. Temporary lighting allows for essential activities to continue and not be shut down by emergency-imposed darkness. Temporary lighting comes in all kinds of different sizes and constructions, and can, of course, be suited to either indoor or outdoor use.

 

Exit signage. Imagine an office or corridor or some other room that you regularly use filling with smoke or plunged into darkness for some reason and you have to leave the building to survive. It's not a pleasant thing to consider - although considering it and planning for it may mean that the worst will never be allowed to happen. What you need to ensure is that in the event of something like this taking place, you have working emergency exit signs and/or illuminated pathways that will help guide you and your workmates or your family to safety.

 

Thermoplastic Emergency Lighting. Thermoplastic exit signs are typically situated above a building's nearest exits. Easily recognisable because of their red or green lettering, there are various different kinds of thermoplastic signs to choose from. They include:

 

* Thermoplastic

* Photoluminescent

* Self-Luminous

* Edge Lit

 

Egress Pathways refers to lighting mounted into the floor to provide an escape route during a blackout. Often they consist of LED bulbs and are typically found in the aisles of airplanes, cinemas and theaters.
