Emergency Lighting

Let Eclipse (IP) Light The Way

Emergency Lighting

Emergency lighting is one of the most important but overlooked components of a safety system. Used in critical situations when the main power and electrical supply is compromised, emergency lights provide illumination to help occupants evacuate the premises.

While typically installed during a property's construction, the systems are often designed only to meet the current building regulations and local authorities' minimal requirements, which can quickly go out of date.

It's also very common for the building to change hands, and what it's used for can also change. This means that the emergency lighting system you're currently using might not be fit for the current iteration of your building.

Particularly if you're working in a public space, you have a duty of care to your workers or residents to responsibly deliver the correct health and safety measures.

At Eclipse (IP), we aim to provide all clients with a thoroughly reliable system that not only provides the best possible support during an emergency but meets all safety regulations that are currently required of your building.

By choosing us, you're choosing a skilled and knowledgeable team that will deliver bespoke service and advice based on your personal requirements. So get in touch today for all your emergency lighting needs. 


What Is Emergency Lighting?

Standby Lighting

Standby lighting helps those inside a property continue normal operations in the event of a power cut, power failure or other disruption that doesn't require a full evacuation or potential loss to life. 

Your building will deliver an emergency light (often provided an emergency lighting supply such as a generator or battery-powered emergency lighting) akin to normal lighting until the issue is resolved. 


Emergency Escape Lighting

This type of emergency lighting system provides illumination for those attempting to leave a property safely. The features of this type of system include:

  • Escape route lighting: used to identify and light an escape route and fire exits
  • Open area lighting: (also known as anti-panic lighting) ensures sufficient illumination for people to reach an area where an escape route can be identified.
  • High-risk task area lighting: provides illumination for the safety of people involved in a potentially dangerous process or situation and enables proper shut-down procedures to protect the operator and other occupants of the premises.


Maintained Emergency Lighting vs Non Maintained Lights

Essentially, non-maintained emergency lighting switches on in the case of a power cut, whereas maintained emergency lighting is lit continuously with a battery as backup.

Whatever your system, we can help. At Eclipse (IP), we're proud to install and maintain every type of emergency lighting available on the market.
