Exit light & Emergency Lighting- ensuring proper working
The only way you can ensure that the emergency and exit lights are functioning properly in buildings such as offices, malls, schools and hospitals or any other private structures, is that they be regularly evaluated and tested. While these light installations are rarely ever used, it is crucial that they be maintained well. It’s only when they function well and are easily visible & accessible, that they will serve their purpose in case of any emergency situation.
Exit light & Emergency lighting is comprised of lights, illuminated exit signs and combination exit sign and lighting units. These have their own power supply which allows them to mark the way out of a building in an emergency.
Like fire extinguishers, emergency lighting is required to be mains power tested in accordance with Australian Standard 2293 for 90 minutes on battery back up every six months. If exit lights are not regularly tested on battery backup the battery packs and circuitry constantly receive a charge and never get the chance to be used and therefore overheat and failed in much the same way your car battery or cordless drill would if treated in the same manner.
