Putting fire safety first for over 40 years


It’s time to update your Emergency Lighting

As part of new changes to clarify emergency lighting regulations (BS 5266 -1: 2011), there is a requirement to improve illuminance (Lux Level) for specific locations, designated escape routes and open areas. It’s essential therefore that building owners and managers comply with the new code of practice.

Minimum Illuminance

50 Lux:

  1. Treatment Rooms - To assist completion of complex operations 

15 Lux:

  1. First Aid Rooms - To enable minor medical procedures to be completed

  2. Kitchens - To ensure live equipment can be made safe

  3. Plant or Switch Rooms - To permit access if required

  4. Reception Areas - To allow emergency service calls to be made

  5. Fire Alarm Control & Indicating Equipment - To enable clear inspection

5 Lux:

  1. Refuge Areas (for mobility impaired) - To assist with safe assembly & transfer

  2. Swimming Pool Surrounds & Diving Areas - To permit safe clearance

  3. Panic Bars and Pads or Security Devices - To ensure safe operation

1 Lux:

  1. Defined Escape Routes (up to 2 metres wide) - To provide safe escape
