Emergency Lighting

AK Fire engineers are fully qualified and highly experienced in maintaining emergency lighting. You can, therefore, be confident that all your equipment will be maintained to the relevant British Standard.

AK Fire is able to provide a FULL service on emergency lighting in accordance with British Standards 5266-1.

In the event of a fire on your work premises, your normal lighting system could fail and plunge your building into darkness. Anyone inside the building could struggle to get out.

As an employer, you have a legal duty to carry out a fire risk assessment and part of this involves taking a look into your emergency lighting. We can install a variety of different emergency lighting systems to ensure your system will operate effectively in an emergency.

What does emergency light testing involve?

Emergency lighting testing requires all electrical circuits supplying an emergency light to be isolated. This will ensure that the internal battery in the emergency light fittings keeps the exits illuminated during power failure.

Why do I need my emergency lights tested?

Emergency lighting systems are installed to provide assistance in evacuating your premises in the event of a loss of power to the general lighting circuits in the event of a fire.

It is the responsibility of all employers to ensure that these systems are suitably maintained and checked to ensure they are safe and compliant.
