Emergency lighting

We specify, supply and maintain emergency lighting systems. The clear illumination escape routes, emergency equipment and safety systems is paramount to allow the safe evacuation of a building, access to safety equipment, safety services and high risk control systems.

We offer a full design, installation, commissioning and maintenance service for emergency lighting systems carried out in accordance with BS5266 pt 1 2016.

Our ICEL (Industry Committee for Emergency Lighting) trained and qualified engineers can help you through the legislation and provide you with the right level of service. Whether your responsibilities are for a nursing home, retail space, storage facilities or hotels we have the experience and competency to keep you on the right side of the law.
