The provision of emergency lighting systems is now a legal requirement, yet it’s still one of the most overlooked and misunderstood areas of lighting design. At ErosPhos we’re able to deliver robust and cohesive emergency lighting solutions for a multitude of environments.
We ensure correct guidelines and legal requirements are met.
According to The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRFSO) 2005, the person responsible for managing commercial and shared residential premises is accountable for the safety of everyone in the building. This includes emergency lighting.
Article 14 (2) (h) of the RRFSO states: “Emergency routes and exits requiring illumination must be provided with emergency lighting of adequate intensity in the case of failure of their normal lighting”. Emergency lighting is a vital part of the overall safety provision of a building. The UK’s leading authority on emergency lighting, the Industry Committee for Emergency Lighting (ICEL), states: “The legal requirement is that non‐domestic buildings must be safe at all times, even if mains power failure occurs. Therefore, nearly all such buildings must have emergency lighting fitted”.
