Although often called emergency lighting, there are different types of emergency lighting systems and installations which have different objectives and standards.
Emergency Exit Signs
The objective of emergency escape lighting is to enable a safe exit from a location/ building in the event of a power failure. This provides appropriate visual (directional) markers on escape routes and special zones, ensuring that fire fighting and safety equipment can be readily located and used.
Open Area (Anti-panic) Lighting
Open area lighting reduces the likelihood of panic and enables the safe movement of occupants towards emergency escape routes. Our signage displays recognizable icons that adhere to international standards, thus guaranteeing appropriate visual conditions and direction finding.
High Risk Task Area Lighting
High risk task lighting contributes to the safety of people involved in a a potentially dangerous process/situation. This enables that proper shut-down protocols are followed for the safety of the other occupants within the location/building.
