Will your emergency lights work when you need them?

Emergency lights provide lighting in corridors, stairwells, ramps, escalators, aisles, and exit passageways in the event of a power outage. If your emergency lights fail to operate properly during an emergency situation, building occupants may become disoriented.

Routine maintenance of emergency and exit lighting is frequently overlooked until an emergency occurs. Regular maintenance is required be NFPA Standard 101, chapter 31, section 1.3.7.

NFPA STANDARD 101-31-1.3.7
"A functional test shall be conducted on every
required emergency lighting system at 30-day
intervals for a minimum of 30 seconds. An
annual test shall be conducted for the 1½ hour
duration. Equipment shall be fully operational
of the test. Written records of visual inspections
and tests shall be kept by the authority
having jurisdiction.

Our trained technicians will perform the required testing and maintenance on emergency lights and provide you with the written records as required by law. A full discharge of each unit must be performed annually.
