Emergency Lighting Testing
Litenow support compliance with BS5266 regulations through the provision of emergency lighting testing and the supply of appropriate safety lighting fittings.
Evacuating from a dark, unfamiliar building during an emergency can be upsetting and dangerous.
Locating Fire fighting equipment and Fire Exits in unknown surroundings can lead to panic and injury.
Emergency Lighting systems are designed to provide safe levels of illumination in the event of power outages caused by power cuts or fires.
These systems will only operate effectively if they are maintained regularly.
To ensure that your system operates effectively when you need it most, and that your legal obligations are met Litenow can regularly inspect, repair and maintain your emergency lighting system.
Litenow recommends that Emergency lighting systems should be function tested on a monthly basis and that a full 3 hour discharge be carried out annually
