Emergency Lighting Design

One Way Electricals’ commercial electricians are qualified and experienced emergency lighting designers in Staffordshire, Derbyshire, and Cheshire. All businesses require emergency lighting on some level and whether your company needs someone to design a system for a large office or modest salon, there’s no job too great or small for our experienced team. Our emergency lighting designs help companies to protect employees from injury, meet fire safety regulations, ease operations, and maintenance activities.

Whether your businesses are in Derbyshire, Staffordshire, or Cheshire, we can survey an existing system for compliance with current regulations and provide a quotation for upgrades, or remedial works to bring the system up to date. Our emergency lighting can be designed to:

  • Indicate clearly and unambiguously the escape routes.
  • Provide illumination along such routes to allow safe movement towards and through the exits provided.
  • Ensure that fire alarm call points and firefighting equipment provided along escape routes can be readily located.
  • Permit operations concerned with safety measures.

Design Objective

BS 5266-1 recommends that discussions should be held prior to commencing the design, to establish the areas to be covered, the method of operation, the testing regime, and the most suitable type of system. These discussions should include the owner or occupier of the premises, the system designer, the installer, the supplier of the equipment and the fire authority.

In addition to fire safety legislation, some workplaces require a licence from the Local Authority. These include theatres, cinemas, sport stadiums, music venues, dance halls, and bars, amongst others. Both licensed and registered premises must pass a fire inspection to confirm that they have systems complying with BS 5266-1 for the emergency lighting and BS 5839 for fire equipment. Records of a system are now essential to maintain the validity of approvals and licences.
