Emergency Lighting

The team at Care Projects provide emergency lighting systems for commercial, industrial, medical and educational facilities across the South West.

Emergency lighting is legally required to operate automatically. It could also have a sufficient level of illumination. This ensures all occupants can evacuate the building safely. Most new builds have an emergency lighting system installed during construction. This system is explicitly designed to meet current regulations and any local authority guide requirements.

Here at Care Projects, we offer a wide range of emergency solutions. Our lighting services include installation, design, testing and maintenance for both commercial and residential properties alike. We can design and install lighting to meet the current standards needed for offices, clubs, hospitals, care homes, schools and colleges. Our expert team also have experience installing lighting for licensed premises, hotels, museums, shops and multi-storey dwellings.

Monthly Testing

As per the current regulations, emergency light systems require a short functional test. This test is carried out to ensure your lighting is fully operational and functioning correctly. It also ensures each luminaire has a good amount of illumination.

Monthly testing on your system doesn’t mean that you must check all emergency lights simultaneously. The system may be tested in sections using a testing schedule. This process ensures all luminaires are tested within each calendar month.

Annual Testing

The annual lighting test of your emergency system ensures your system functions as it should and distributes acceptable levels of light over a suitable period (usually 3 hours).

Our qualified electricians can cover all aspects of your annual testing, from upgrading existing systems to designing and installing brand new systems to current standards. All of our work is carried out by qualified and experienced electricians with verified NICEIC certifications.

What is Emergency Lighting?

Emergency lighting is designed to illuminate an area in the event of a power cut or if a lighting fault should occur that trips out the lighting circuit. Emergency lighting ensures that, in the event of a sudden blackout for example, occupants can safely exit the building.

Why are emergency lights provided?

Emergency lights and lighting systems ensure your building will be adequately illuminated during an emergency such as a blackout. This ensures the occupants of your building can exit the property safely.

How often should emergency lighting be tested?

All your emergency lighting systems should be tested monthly. This test is a short, functional test in accordance with official regulations. The duration of your test should be sufficient enough to ensure your lighting system illuminates correctly and minimises any damage to your system components.
