Emergency Lighting

CMS Electrical Contractors design and install emergency lighting to BS 5266-1:2005 (the emergency lighting code of practice for emergency lights in property). We also offer you agreements for the testing and advice to help you comply with the obligations for the emergency lights.

Emergency lights are essential for the safety of building occupants. It is essential that the lighting comes on if the regular lighting does not work properly. It needs to be adequately bright, illuminated for a satisfactory time period and the light sources can be relied upon.

Routine Testing should be performed by properly trained personnel and a competent person:

• Daily – visual check to ensure that emergency lighting systems are functioning effectively and that indicators are functioning. This tends to be carried out by the ‘responsible person’ assigned to the task by the company/ business. Any defects must be logged and corrected immediately.

• Monthly – Check all luminaires for indications of damage or disrepair. Briefly test all emergency lights to ensure they operate in the event of mains electricity supply failure. This will generally be achieved by the ‘responsible person’. Any defects need to be logged and solved immediately.

• Annually – The complete system examination and duration test of the emergency lights must be achieved by a ‘competent person‘, this being a person with the mandatory skills, training and knowledge to execute emergency lighting maintenance and servicing. Conformity with BS5266 should be thought about and produced in the emergency lighting certification report. Any faults should be fixed. CMS Electrical engineers are qualified and experienced in the routine examination and testing of emergency lighting systems.
