Most people are probably most familiar with emergency exit lighting after they’ve flown somewhere and listened to the airline safety briefing. Or, maybe they’ve noticed the green emergency exit signs at their workplace, but haven’t really given them much thought.
The simple fact is that emergency exit lighting saves lives in the event of a fire.
The illuminated emergency exit signs not only give people escaping a fire a clear path of egress from a burning building, but also save valuable time in helping everyone escape. Because most fires cause electrical wiring to fail, emergency exit lighting must be able to operate automatically and independently of any power failure.
In addition, they must provide sufficient illumination for the type and size of building they are installed in, as well as take into account the distance from high traffic areas to the nearest exit points.
Given this, it’s easy to see why it’s vital that all emergency exit lighting must be clearly visible, legible and placed in locations around your business premises where exits might not be immediately obvious to people working or visiting the site.

Then, the power to the emergency exit signs will be switched off so that all signs can be checked for illumination while operating on battery power alone.
