Emergency Lighting   Normally emergency lighting systems are designed to provide an illuminated pathway out of the property in the event of a power outage. 

They are arranged to provide continuity of this very essential service, are comprised of lighting fixtures connected to the 110-volt power source. A sudden shutdown can create extensive damage for many types of equipment if no warning time exists to prepare in an orderly manner. Hospitals, police and fire stations, and mission-critical facilities are among the most potentially vulnerable institutional and commercial facilities. The system provides power for a battery, which runs the lighting system if an outage occurs. The lighting units are switched to the batteries and run on their own low-voltage direct current. Generally, the lighting units are located in stairwells, corridors, lobbies and at key entrances and locations.

If the indicator light or specific-gravity check shows a discharged condition even though the charging system is connected to a 110-volt power source and is charging, the cell life might be expired. The guard should note this problem on the inspection sheet so the maintenance department can prepare a work order for replacement.

  Regulations change from one county to the next, so the codes that apply in one county may not be the same that apply in a neighboring county. Also, different types of buildings have to comply with different regulations. For example, hospitals are required to comply with regulations that are different from residential buildings. The best way to cover all possible angles is to make sure an engineer competent in the codes and regulations that apply to the job site has reviewed and approved the emergency lighting layout.

Be knowledgeable of the basic code requirements

There are two main standards for emergency lighting. The Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 924 Standard for Emergency Lighting and Power Equipment dictates how the fixtures should be constructed, and how they should perform. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 101 Life Safety Code dictates how buildings should be illuminated in case of a power outage. There is an important distinction between these two codes: UL 924 describes the fixtures themselves, while NFPA 101 describes how the UL listed fixtures should be installed to provide adequate emergency illumination. Inspectors will check both the fixtures and the installation, but as long as the fixtures are UL 924 listed, most of the inspection problems will arise from the way the fixtures were installed. Thus NFPA 101 is what you should be mindful of.


Exit Signs    Any point on, or leading to, an escape route must have an exit sign so that there is no ambiguity in the direction of escape.  Text only signs are obsolete and must be replaced. Exit signboards can be used, providing that an adjacent emergency luminaries illuminates the board adequately. A more effective way of emphasizing the way out is to use internally illuminated exit signs.

Escape Routes    It is essential that people can move safely along an escape route in an emergency. There are often minor hazards such as steps that should be illuminated. It is not unusual for an object (trolleys, boxes, suitcases) to be left on the escape route, in which case the lighting should be sufficient [a minimum of 1 lux on the escape route] for people to see the obstruction and avoid it.
