Having adequate exit and emergency lighting is paramount especially in Darwin due to the frequency of power outages. Emergency lighting provides illumination that enables people to see clearly, avoid obstacles and get out of buildings safely.
When was the last time you had the emergency and exit lighting in your building tested? If regular maintenance of your emergency and exit lighting is not happening, contact PH Electrical today and we will put in place a maintenance program that will make sure people in your buildings will be able to see their way safely in times of emergency.
It is a legal requirement for building owners to adequately maintain emergency and exit lighting. According to Australian Standard 2293.2:1995, all commercial, industrial and institutional buildings must have emergency and exit lighting regularly tested and the results of these tests recorded. The Standard states that exit and emergency lighting testing must be done every six months to ensure correct functioning.
Outsourcing the maintenance of emergency lighting to experts can drastically reduce your labour, maintenance, installation and utility costs. By spending a little bit on regular maintenance businesses can reduce the running costs and increase the safety of facilities.
Maintaining your emergency and exit lighting system will ensure everything works when it is needed. Regular maintenance programs cover checking of batteries, battery chargers, distribution and control equipment, lights and the system in general. To meet Australian Standard 2293.2:1995 all testing should be recorded in a hard bound log book which is then kept on site for future reference.
