Emergency Lighting Installation

Be Prepared for Emergencies Before They Happen

Are you aware that in all municipalities, your commercial property must have emergency lighting to be compliant with fire codes? Emergency lights are those that illuminate the exit routes for a commercial building. They are typically well-lit exit signs that will stay lit even in the midst of a blackout. The purpose is to mitigate chaos during an emergency by clearly outlining the exits during a fire, flood, or other emergency situation by directing employees and patrons to the best possible avenue in order to escape a potentially dangerous situation.

Due to the nature of emergency lighting, they must have a separate power supply in order to work when all other supplies are down to help you deal with the emergency situation at hand. In a perfect scenario, not only are the emergency exit lights mounted near the ceiling but emergency floor lights are installed to make the exit path more visible, which aids in avoiding unnecessary accidents and injuries.

To truly follow all guidelines, know the OSHA and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) guidelines which require the following means of egress, which is defined as “a continuous and unobstructed way of exit travel from any point in a building or structure to a public way and consists of three separate and distinct parts”:

  • Exit access-the portion of the property that leads to the exit
  • Exit-the portion of the property which is separated from all other spaces of a building or structure by construction or equipment to provide a protected way of travel to the exit discharge
  • Exit discharge-the portion between the termination of an existing and the public way.

It is essential to make sure your emergency lighting is installed properly and up to code. This project is not one that should be left as a DIY project. Unnecessary injury, death, and, although not as dire, fines for failing fire codes may be at risk. Therefore, it is in your best interest to hire a professional electrician to aid in the installation of your emergency lighting.
