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.
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.
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.
