Safety lighting ensures safe evacuation
During a fire, a building’s normal power supply can put out so the light goes on. It can quickly create a panic situation that compromises the evacuation and creates additional insecurity in a pre-stressed situation. With safety lighting, you avoid the light going on. In the event of a power failure, the safety lighting switches on and guides the persons in the building about the location of the escape routes. This allows you to prevent panic and ensure a quiet and effective evacuation.
At PH-EL & Sikring, we have many years of experience with safety lighting, both as standalone installations and as part of major fire insurance contracting. For decades, we have helped some of the country’s largest business companies with consulting, project planning, installation and service regarding safety lighting and fire protection in general.
What is safety lighting?
As mentioned, escape route lighting / panic lighting / safety lighting are lights that are switched on in the event of a power failure to prevent panic and to ensure that it is possible to orient yourself to rapid escape in emergencies. The lighting comes in many different forms at strategic locations, where they come in as much use as possible, for example on escape route luminaires, built-in signs, hand lamps, etc.
The safety lighting must be arranged in accordance with the requirements of the building regulations which state that:
- The lighting must be at least 1 lux on floor areas in escape routes.
- The lighting must come into operation immediately after a power failure and must be maintained for at least 30 minutes.
