In the UK, commercial property owners must adhere to the relevant British Standards, particularly BS5266, which provides guidelines for the installation and maintenance of emergency lighting systems should normal lighting fail during an onsite incident. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 places legal responsibilities on property owners to ensure that these systems are correctly installed and regularly tested for compliance with safety standards.


Elec Test South East’s electricians supply and install the following in accordance with all relevant regulations:

  • Exit Signs

  • Emergency Exit Lighting

  • Fire Alarm Installations

  • Smoke Detectors

  • Heat Detection Systems

Exit Signs

These are among the most essential components of emergency lighting systems in commercial properties. In the event of a power outage or fire, exit signs provide clear, easily identifiable directions for occupants to safely leave the building. They eliminate confusion and panic, guiding people to the nearest exit point. In the UK, exit signs must comply with British and European standards, ensuring their visibility and reliability.

Battery Backup Lighting

Support lighting is another indispensable feature, as it provides illumination when the main power source fails. In properties with large or complex layouts, it is crucial to maintain visibility to avoid accidents and facilitate an orderly evacuation. Battery backup lighting can include evacuation lighting units installed throughout the premises, including hallways, stairwells, and high-occupancy areas.

Emergency Exit Lighting

This lighting focuses on the escape routes, ensuring they remain adequately illuminated during emergencies. It is instrumental in guiding individuals to safe exits, especially in situations where smoke or darkness may hinder visibility. Such lighting is crucial to prevent accidents, aid evacuation procedures, and reduce possible injuries.
