Emergency lighting plays a crucial part in any business, as the safety of your staff and customers is paramount. Our range of emergency fittings, exit signs and conversion kits allow you to fulfill your obligations, look after your staff and customers, and all without it having to cost the earth. At the same time there is no need to sacrifice the interior design of your premises, as we stock functional and decorative emergency fittings that easily complement your existing lighting.
The purpose of emergency fittings is to ensure that your employees and visitors can safely find their way to exit routes in the event of an emergency, even if a power failure occurs.
Definition of Emergency Light Fittings
Maintained: Illuminated all the time
Maintained emergency fittings are designed to provide constant illumination and have integral batteries to power the fitting for 3 hours if there is a power failure.
Government fire safety codes require certain premises to install maintained emergency lighting. These include theatres, restaurants, pubs, concert / exhibition halls and stadiums - anywhere the primary lighting may be dimmed and where people may consume alcohol. The light will remain on even when the power fails.
Non-Maintained: Illuminates only when power fails
Certain premises (e.g. those with fewer than 250 people present at one time) can use a non-maintained emergency system if preferred, which is switched on only when the power fails. As with maintained they run for 3 hours using built in batteries.
Dual Purpose: Maintained / Non-Maintained
Can be installed as either maintained or non-maintained to suit requirements.
Wide Choice of Emergency Fittings & Signs Available
Lyco's wide range of emergency fittings and signs is sure to offer what you require for your premises. Choose from:
- Emergency exit signs with flexible legends.
- Recessed fluorescent lights for unobtrusive emergency fittings.
- Powerful halogen emergency spotlights for larger premises.
- Sleek and stylish emergency ceiling lights and downlights that blend easily with other indoor fittings.
Our lights are made from high quality materials such as steel and shatterproof polycarbonate, to give you emergency fittings that are reliable and long-lasting.
Matching Non-Emergency Lighting
Some of our emergency lights have a matching standard model which does not illuminate when mains power is off. This allows you to have a smart looking office or other building in which all the wall/ceiling lights look the same.
Energy Efficient Long Life Lighting
Our fittings make use of various light sources according to their design. LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes), fluorescent tubes and low energy lamps are perfect for maintained fittings, as they are long lasting and highly energy efficient. As non-maintained emergency fittings are designed to be lit for only a short period of time, bright and powerful lamps such as Halogen are ideal, especially for large premises that require very bright emergency lighting.
