Emergency lighting should be provided when there’s a power outage or lighting sources fail and for these reasons it operates separately from the main power supply.
The purpose of emergency lighting is to provide a guide to get people safely out of a building in the event of a blackout, i.e. power source or standard lighting failure.
Emergency lighting systems installed by electricians at Kibworth Electrical now use high intensity LED lighting, because this solution omits a higher percentage of light, has a great lifespan and is more economical than previous incandescent lighting solutions.
High occupancy buildings, such as College accommodations, apartment blocks and new commercial buildings in Market Harborough and Leicestershire are places you would definitely find the provision of emergency lighting. However, the British Standards guidelines 5266-1:2011 demand that residential hotels, hospitals, schools, nightclubs, licensed premises, offices and retail outlets have adequate emergency lighting installed too.
