UK Building Regulations, along with the associated Approved Documents, require that emergency lighting be installed in all escape routes and numerous other areas. This ensures adequate illumination in the event of normal lighting failure, enhancing safety and compliance with legal standards.

Emergency Lighting

Emergency lighting provides wayfinding and illumination for escape routes, enabling safe evacuation. This can be achieved through self-contained integral emergency equipment or central battery systems, ensuring reliable operation during a power failure.

Designplan has been providing emergency versions of our luminaires for many years, adhering to the same rigorous design, development, and testing procedures as our standard products. Each luminaire is factory certified by us. We also offer comprehensive auto and self-test systems to perform mandatory testing and real-time monitoring, ensuring your emergency lighting system remains at peak operational readiness and in compliance with legal obligations.

Technical Support
