All high-occupancy and commercial buildings are required to have emergency lighting systems installed as standard. These lights are designed to operate when the normal lighting system fails, as in the case of a fire, to ensure occupants can leave the building quickly.

Emergency lighting systems generally run on six or 12-volt batteries with a highly efficient incandescent or LED bulb and are designed to activate automatically by circuit breaker in the event of a power outage or failure. At KDE, we have the technical experience and knowledge to help you make the right choice for your property or workplace.

Emergency lights are designed to help people make their way to an emergency exit when the main lights are down and some are actually combined into the design of the main lights, meaning they are permanently on charge with a battery life of at least 90 minutes. This length of time is considered a long enough time to make an exit and for the fault to be repaired, if possible.

Rest assured, our Cheshire based electricians at KDE will provide you with the hardware, support and advice you need to install the appropriate emergency lighting system.
