When mains power is lost emergency lighting is required to ensure the occupants of a building can if required safely and quickly navigate out of the building to a point of safety. There are 3 main steps to creating an effective emergency lighting scheme: -
Step 1 - Exit Signage - Signage must be placed to provide a clear and unambiguously marked route to the final exit.
Step 2 - Mandatory Points - Emergency fittings are required at certain mandatory points to provide essential light. These include but are not limited to: -
Changes of direction
Changes in the height / level of a floor
Intersection of corridors
Fire fighting equipment and call points
Outside first aid point(s)
Outside of final exit and to a point of safety
Step 3 - Infill Lighting - In addition to the above points "infill" emergency lighting may be required to the achieve the correct emergency lighting levels, for example along a particular stretch of long internal corridor.
The Salerno range of Lux Bright 6W LED IP65 weather proof bulkheads are a cost effective solution to providing emergency lighting coverage for a wide variety of applications. The body is constructed of white fire retardant and UV resistant polycarbonate. The diffuser has the same properties as the body except it has a clear diffuser. A steel hinged gear tray allows for simple future maintenance should any be required. Each bulkhead comes complete with a self adhesive legend kit (Up, Down, Left and Right Arrows) for if the luminaire is to be used as a directional emergency light. The Salerno range can be set to work in either non maintained or maintained modes of operation. The integral battery pack has a minimum of 3 hours use. Finally a recessing kit is available for this range, to give a neater appearance once installed in internal areas.
1) High Quality Components - means a low failure rate and therefore expensive mainentance charges are avoided, not to mention the time it can take to rectify such issues.
2) Reduced Maintenance Cost - typical maintained emergency lights using fluorescent technology will typically need their fluorescent lamp replacing every 12-18 months. If a Modena emergency directional light is used it will not need replacing for an estimated 50,000 hours, this is the equivalent to almost 5.5 years of continual operation.
3) Cost Effective - sometimes budgets and necessity mean it is not possible to upgrade all the lighting in a building just to replace or add additional emergency lights. Therefore by providing a cost effective emergency lighting solution safety is been given to the users of a building until such a time a full lighting refurbishment is possible.
