Importance of Emergency Lighting

Emergency and exit signs should be an essential component when upgrading your lighting system.

Exit signs and emergency lights are generally not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about energy efficiency. But that doesn’t mean property and building managers shouldn’t consider efficient lighting fixtures.

In fact, emergency lighting  and exit signage are essential for accidents or catastrophic events that require a safe and smooth evacuation from a building. It provides illumination allowing people to see clearly, avoid obstacles and move confidently to the nearest exit in a crisis.

Emergency ballasts allow an existing light fixture to operate in emergency battery mode during a power outage. In the event of a power failure, the emergency battery ballast operates the fixture, powering the lamp for a minimum of 90 minutes from the built-in backup battery.

So when you consider updating your lighting fixtures, don’t forget about emergency lighting as an essential component.
