5 Benefits of Emergency Lighting Systems

Monday, 1st July

Emergency exit lights can go from being largely unnoticed to potentially lifesaving in a matter of moments. They are crucial in reducing panic and accidents during emergencies and power cuts.

1. A Reliable Safety System

An emergency lighting system is something that will spend the majority of its time doing nothing – but when you need it, you really need it. They provide businesses with a dependable and vital safety measure during power cuts or during an emergency like a fire. When these systems sense an interruption in the mains power supply, they automatically switch on and illuminate rooms and escape routes to ensure staff can evacuate safely. Emergency exit lights are simply essential, and legally required, for the safety of building occupants.

2. Cost-Effective Solution

Investing in an emergency lighting system offers a cost-effective solution for businesses. Unlike other safety measures that might require frequent replacements or high maintenance costs, emergency lighting systems are durable and reliable. They help businesses comply with safety regulations, potentially reducing liability and insurance costs. Additionally, installing a high-quality emergency lighting system mitigates risks, ensuring that emergencies are managed efficiently without incurring significant expenses from accidents or regulatory fines.

3. Highly Durable

You never know when a power cut or serious emergency will strike, so it’s essential that emergency lighting systems are built to be robust, reliable and ready to go with a split second’s notice. Their hardwearing construction, including the ability to endure extreme temperatures and other challenging environments, minimises the need for frequent replacements, providing businesses with a long-lasting and dependable safety solution. This durability not only enhances safety but also contributes to cost savings over time by reducing maintenance needs.

4. Provides A Constant Light Source

The key benefit of an emergency lighting system is clearly to help building occupants to evacuate safely and quickly during an emergency. They illuminate for a minimum of 3 hours, then depending on the quality of system that time can change.

As well as showing the way to the exit, it’s vital to keep areas illuminated to reduce the likelihood of trips and falls, such as in potential accident hotspots like stairwells. A constant light source will significantly reduce the risk of these accidents and will allow your staff and visitors to exit your building in an orderly fashion should there be an emergency.

5. Energy Efficiency

Emergency lighting systems, particularly those using LED emergency lights, are known for their energy efficiency. Emergency lights keep their batteries charged off the mains supply, ready for when they may be needed, so there is a tangible saving to be made as LEDs consume less power and generate less heat, making them a more environmentally friendly choice. This energy efficiency not only reduces operational costs but also supports sustainable business values.
