If your business is in a building, by law you need to have clear evacuation strategies for emergencies such as fires which can disrupt power supply to electrical lights. Emergency light testing and exit light testing will guarantee that people will be able to find the exit path to safety. A clearly lit exit path will reduce panic and increase the chance of staff or customers avoiding physical harm. It is essential that if there is an electrical emergency in Melbourne that your emergency and exit lights are in working order.
At LocalPro Electric, we have trained safety testing technicians who can inspect and test your emergency lighting system and maintain safety in your premises. Our team members are available any day of the week to attend to emergency light maintenance and repair jobs at a convenient time to you.
An emergency lighting system must be installed on every level of a building where a storey has floor space of more than 300 square metres according to the Building Code of Australia. Emergency lighting must be installed in all hallways that is in the evacuation path and in any room that has a floor space of more than 100 square metres that does not open to a hallway. Exit signs must be visible and installed above doors that lead to required exits or open roads and spaces. Take a look at the code or contact one of our team members to discuss your obligations with regard to compliance with building exit and emergency light testing.
AS2293.2 standard requires all emergency luminaries and exit signs to be inspected at 6 monthly intervals. A trained technician will test the lamps and replace any defective lights during inspection. All devices must undergo a discharge test of 90 minutes.
Lighting systems should receive another test every 12 months with the same procedures as the 6 monthly test in addition to the inspection and cleaning of fittings and reflective surfaces. It is essential to hire a professional to test your system instead of simply replacing the battery by yourself. Without a proper discharge test, you may not bve aware of potential power failures in your system. A technician is trained to identify any faults in your lighting through thorough inspection and compliance with safety standards.
