Emergency Lighting Inspection And Maintenance
Emergency lighting is a type of backup lighting that automatically switches on when the main power supply fails or is cut. When there’s no electricity from the main power supply due to a fire or any other reason, it may result in total darkness and a potentially dangerous situation to occupants of the building. Emergency lighting is put in place not only to protect the occupants from any sort of physical harm but also to provide security and prevent panic.
Why Inspection And Maintenance Is Important
After installing emergency lighting, building owners should ensure that it operates fully and effectively. This form of lighting is designed to sufficiently illuminate an area so that the people are able to safely evacuate the premise. The lighting can be installed when a building is being constructed and it should be according to the local authority requirements.
Maintenance is generally done to ensure that the emergency lighting is at full operational status. If servicing is required, it should be specified and done immediately. Items like replacement lamps and spares that are part of the emergency lighting system may need to be replaced from time to time.
Servicing And Testing
Emergency lighting systems must be serviced and tested according to local guidelines. Testing can be done by simulating a mains power failure on the usual lighting circuit. When the mains power supply is cut, the emergency lighting system will automatically be switched on. It normally operates via the battery supply. Testing can be done either manually or automatically.
Manual Vs. Automatic Testing Of Emergency Lighting
Manual testing is cheaper but it can cause a lot of disruption in the building. For instance, the tester has to walk throughout the whole building in order to ensure the emergency luminaries are operating correctly. Furthermore, the tester can use switches that are likely to mess with the building’s décor.
Automatic testing on the other hand is less time consuming but may require the expertise of an engineer. Automatic testing also causes minimal disruption in a building that’s why it’s normally recommended in premises that are very busy. There are different ways of performing automatic testing depending on the site requirements.
Once the testing is carried out, whether automatic or manual, the system’s performance needs to be documented in the fire safety logbook. If failures are detected during testing, there must be remedies administered as soon as possible.
