Most of us take emergency lighting system for granted, but we shouldn’t. A well-designed emergency lighting system can make the difference between life and death for people trapped in a darken space, particularly under a stressful situation.
Exit and emergency lighting systems are designed by All Florida Fire Equipment to provide illumination during power outages and emergency situations. Exit signs will illuminate the best path to follow in order to safely exit a building during a power outage or fire emergency.
Your emergency lighting system is made up of a rechargeable battery, a battery charger, one or more light bulbs, and a relay device to turn on the bulbs automatically when the building power fails. Batteries are sized to provide enough power in the event of an emergency lasting at least 1-1/2 hours.
Various governmental agencies (NFPA, OSHA, AHJ) and your local fire marshal have established a comprehensive list of standards that need to be followed in order to have an emergency lighting system that complies with various codes. It is more complicated that just sticking up a few signs, but fortunately All Florida Fire Equipment knows all the regulations and has you covered.
In addition to installing an emergency lighting system, you must keep in full working order at all times. Your local fire marshal has determined a regular schedule of maintenance and testing of your system, and we’ll make sure that your system receives all its scheduled maintenance.
Our full-service inspection team will test your equipment to ensure that your batteries, chargers, and bulbs all meet the required standards and are in perfect working order. We can schedule monthly or annual inspections depending on the requirements of your business and, if you’d like, set up an ongoing program where we keep track of all your required inspections and maintenance needs. That way, you can rely on All Florida Fire Equipment to make sure that your system is fully maintained before you run into any regulatory problem.
It’s a sure bet that at one time or other the power is going to go out. When that happens, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that your emergency lighting systems will keep your customers and employees safe by providing them with a path to safety.
