Emergency Lighting Installation Sydney

Emergency lighting is an important safety measure in any commercial or industrial setting. During a power outage, emergency lighting ensures that exits are well lit and that employees can evacuate the premises safely.

Building codes in NSW also require emergency lighting. Businesses can protect their employees and customers in a crisis by ensuring the proper installation and maintenance of this service.

Which Industries/Businesses Require Emergency Lighting Installation?

When it comes to safety, no industry can be too careful. The National Construction Code (NCC) in Australia stipulates that any government or commercial building occupied by employees, customers, or the general public will require emergency lighting. Some examples are:

  • Office Buildings
  • Shopping Centres
  • Car Parks
  • Sporting Venues
  • Schools
  • Hospitals
  • Hotels
  • Bars & Restaurants
  • Industrial Facilities
  • Warehouses
  • Foyers & Hallways
  • Multi-Residential

With so many different industries requiring emergency lighting, it’s no wonder that this type of installation has become a booming business.

Where Are Emergency Lights Installed In a Building?

Emergency lights must be installed at the top and bottom of all stairwells, near all fire exits, and in all corridors and hallways. Additionally, they must be placed at regular intervals along the length of the exit route. Emergency lights must be tested monthly to ensure that they are in working order.


What Type of Emergency Lights Are There?

Here’s a quick rundown of the different types of emergency lights available and when you might need them.

  • The most common type is the battery-powered flashlight. These are great for power outages since they don’t require electricity to work. However, they don’t last long as the batteries die after a few months.
  • For longer-term outages, or if you need a more powerful light, you may want to consider a generator-powered light. These use gasoline or diesel fuel to run, so they’ll keep working as long as you have fuel.
  • If you’re looking for something that’s easy to set up and provides ample light, consider a LED light tower. These can be plugged into any standard outlet and provide bright LED lighting for a large area.


Why You Need a Professional To Install Emergency Lights

Emergency lights must be installed according to the NSW code. A professional knows the code requirements and ensures the lights are installed correctly.

All exits and emergency lights must be tested every six months. The AS/NZS2293 standard includes requirements for testing, which only someone with suitable qualifications can perform.
