Emergency Lighting

Emergency Lighting is designed to come on when the power goes down in a building. These lights are essential to the safety of people during a power outage, when normal lighting fails. Emergency lighting must comply with the Code of Practise for the emergency lighting of premises: this outlines where lights should be positioned, minimum height and glare levels.

Emergency Lighting


UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply, a device which maintains a continuous supply of electricity to connected equipment by supplying power from a separate source when there is a power outage.
There are two different types of UPS device: off-line UPS and on-line UPS.

  • An off-line UPS remains idle until a power failure occurs, and then switches from utility power to its own power source
  • An on-line UPS continuously powers the protected load from its batteries, while simultaneously replenishing the reserves from the AC power.


With the Disability Discrimination Act in force it is essential that all relevant businesses ensure they are complying with the regulations. The required 'reasonable adjustments' to service providers’ premises (affecting companies offering goods, facilities or services) include the provision of auxiliary aids to help a person with hearing difficulties, and other means to supply the needs of people with disabilities.
