They would need to be conversant with BS 5266-1- 2011 Emergency lighting-Part 1: Code of practice for emergency lighting of premises. After all escape lighting is still emergency lighting, just that provided specifically for the purposes of providing sufficient illumination of exit routes to allow safe egress.

single pole, 2-way secret key switch. Part of the MK Grid Plus System. Modules simply clip into place from the front of the mounting frame (sold separately). Now the refurbishment on the ground floor seems to be wired up in the 'new' way - does not extinguish power to mains. Emergency lighting test key switches, also known as secret key switches, are designed to allow the testing of emergency lights easily whilst ensuring non-authorised personnel cannot tamper with the test switch. Simple system would be you switch the main lights on as normal, then operate the test key switch which simulates a power cut - so you can visually see the EL works.An emergency lighting system should be installed by an electrician who specialises in emergency lighting.

Hi All, I've been reading through all these posts, trying to work out how Emergency Exit lights should be wired with Test switches and think I've worked it out from the varying posts here and on other forums. Toilet facilities for use by disabled people and/or any multiple closet facilities without borrowed light should have emergency escape illumination from at least one luminaire. Organisations may have to provide emergency escape lighting in each cubicle if there is no borrowed light. What are the rules for rented properties? Offering exceptional quality and value for money, this switch is constructed from a durable plastic, and is ideal for controlling restricted access lighting or alarms via the provided key. Escape lighting should not be on it's own circuit unless of the maintained type or part of a central battery system as it should operate on local circuit failure. For what its worth I would like to point out that at least once a year the EL's should be tested (No mains) for 3 hours, so you can make sure that all the lights will last this long. You can not really expect anyone to work with just EL's on / failing.

if the emergency lights need to be tested, only the supply to the emergency lights needs to be interrupted. First floor has a conference room, dining area, servery and kitchen with adjourning conveniences, 11 rooms (classroom or meeting/training rooms), 5 office rooms and 3 sets of conveniences. Life expectancy will vary depending on the make of the battery – with some makes it is four years, some five years. When the life expectancy date expires the batteries should be changed. It is a good idea that when a battery is changed the date of installation is written on the battery for future reference. Safelincs supply spare batteries. If sufficient open area emergency lighting is in the vicinity of a fire exit, non-illuminated fire exit signs can be sufficient in locations of minor importance. Photo-luminescent fire exit signs would be preferable in this case, although it has to be ensured that sufficient light is reaching the photo-luminescent sign to ensure it is ‘charged’ at all times. Considerations I have to wire some lighting in an office. I am putting 4 6' flo fittings in each office (there request). I was going to make on of them a combined emergency fitting and normal light. The supply will be looped in at the switch, is the correct way to wire it - power in to the fish switch (are they DP?) then via a 1 way switch to the fitting in 3 core taking permanent, switched and neutral.

It's all wrong. EL fittings are meant to be on the same circuits as the normal lights, otherwise they won't come on unless you get a complete power outage (local circuit failure is common). Now I have to write up the Fire Risk Assessment on a new bought building (built around 2000, refurbished in 2009) but my concern is on the EL system. There are guidelines to help understand the provision requiredand landlords need to be aware of their responsibilities to carry out a fire risk assessment, and make sure their property has adequate and appropriate fire safety measures in place. How do you maint ain emergency lighting? Hi it was with interest that I read your comments, as an electrician and a fire tech all emergency lighting should be on local supply i.e. the local lighting circuit Emergency escape lighting comes on automatically when the mains power fails and gives off sufficient illumination to enable occupants and visitors to evacuate the premises safely.

British Standard BS 5266-1: 2011 provides clear guidelines about the design and installation of emergency lighting. It should be remembered that the British Standards specify the best practice for standard situations, however, a higher standard may be required for a particular installation. Two, three or four storey houses converted to self-contained flats require conventional lighting and emergency escape lighting if the f ire risk assessment requires it.
