UK Emergency Lighting Regulations & Fire Alarm Testing Regulations

The introduction of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 has brought together all the elements of fire safety. Emergency lighting is primarily intended to provide sufficient illumination to enable people to see their way safely out of a building in cases of emergency and falls into five categories:

Emergency Escape Lighting

Standby Lighting 

Escape Route Lighting

High Risk Task Area Lighting

Open Area (Anti-Panic) Lighting

Complex Central Battery Systems

It is vital that emergency lighting comes on if the normal lighting fails. It needs to be sufficiently bright, illuminated for enough time, and the light sources so positioned that the occupants of a building can be evacuated safely in an emergency. BS5266 Emergency Lighting, the Code of Practice for the emergency lighting of premises, offers guidance on the positioning of emergency luminaires, minimum height levels, acceptable glare levels, together with minimum routine testing schedules.
