Exit & Emergency Lighting Services
Making sure your building’s occupants can navigate the path to safety in an emergency is an essential part of being a commercial building owner or property manager. Having the right emergency lighting in the required areas will ensure your occupants are able to locate the exits easily and safely evacuate the building. Failure to have adequate egress lighting can result in serious fines, enforced by the local authority having jurisdiction (LAHJ).
Exit and Emergency Lighting Inspection
According to NFPA and IBC regulations, emergency lighting should be added in all commercial occupancies. All hallways, stairs, escalators, and pathways both immediately inside and outside the exit area of the building should be well-lit with exit and emergency lighting. Additionally, certain non-egress areas should have lighting as well, such as electrical rooms, generator rooms, fire command centers, and fire pump rooms.
Egress lighting typically lasts 10 years, as long as the lights used are LED and not incandescent lamps. Despite this lengthy life span, building owners are obligated to perform routine maintenance and testing to ensure their egress lighting systems are fully functional when an emergency arises. The most current edition of the NFPA Life Safety Code 101 dictates that monthly maintenance should occur with a 30-second test and visual inspection. Additionally, an annual 90-minute test from your local fire protection company should be a part of routine maintenance.
