What is emergency lighting?

Emergency lighting is designed to come on when the power to the building is cut off. They are self contained units which are wired to the mains but have a separate battery pack, enabling them to power the lights in the event of a power cut.
Emergency lighting uses high-intensity brightness directed towards a fire exit. The lightes are genereally low voltage which prolongs the life of the battery and the bulbs.

Categories of Emergency Lighting
Emergency escape lighting – that part of an emergency lighting system that provides illumination for the safety of people leaving a location or premises. It is part of the fire safety provision of a building and a requirement of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
Standby lighting– an emergency lighting system that enables normal activities to continue substantially unchanged.
Escape route lighting – ensure that the means of escape can be clearly identified and safely used by occupants of the building.
Open area lighting (anti-panic lighting) – provided to minimise panic and ensure there is sufficient illumination to allow the occupants of a building to reach a place where an escape route can be identified.
High risk task area lighting – provides illumination for the safety of people involved in a potentially dangerous process or situation and to enable proper shut-down procedures for the safety of the operator and other occupants of the premises.
