Be Prepared for Emergency Situations
No-one likes being stuck in the dark, it's inconvenient and can be potentially harmful. Emergency lights can seamlessly turn these situations around, allowing you to get back to what matters to you most, making them a necessity rather than a luxury. Equip yourself today and you won't be sorry tomorrow.
Emergency lighting will provide illumination during situations of power outage. Units consist of a rechargeable battery, a charging circuit, lamps that provide the light, and a relay device which energises the lamps when power failure occurs. This equipment can provide illumination for a minimum of 3 hours.
Providing Superior Services
We specialise in the supply and installation of a wide range of emergency lighting devices and solutions for interior and exterior applications. This includes stair and floor illumination, emergency exit lighting, inverters and over-head lighting, among many others. We also supply LED emergency battery packs that can convert any LED light, with an external driver, into an emergency light.
We have always tried to work closely with our customers to offer products suited to their demands and needs. From enclosures, to new battery technologies and power supplies, we ensure each and every aspect of your emergency lighting system matches your required specifications.
Our licensed and trained technicians will ensure that your lighting systems comply with UK building codes and current safety standards. Additionally, periodic maintenance and inspection for all our customers assures that the installed systems are functioning well. Inspection procedures include:
• Performing manual discharge operations and assessing battery charger functionality during power failure conditions
• Examining lights for excessive end blackening and replacing the lamps if required
• Checking diffusers for blockages or obstructions and cleaning all light emitting and reflective surfaces
• Making a thorough record of all defects (with replacement or repair if within guarantee period)
• Maintaining a logbook to keep a record of the installation, technical details about the installation etc
Setting Higher Standards
Apart from our products and installation service, we go one step further and provide you with specialist advice on how to ensure your lighting is up to standard. We also subject ourselves regular to audits for professionalism and quality, allowing us to offer a high quality and cost effective service. No job is too big or small for us here at Derby Firelec.
Regarding current emergency lighting standards, any facility that houses people (this includes schools, office buildings, hotels, hospitals, apartment complexes etc) needs to possess, at the very least, a basic emergency lighting system, which operates automatically, providing sufficient illumination for safe evacuation of the premises - not fulfilling this mandatory requirement, could make you liable to be fined.
Our guidelines are as follows:
• All emergency lighting systems shall be compliant with BS 5266-1:1999 and BS EN 1838:1999
• Batteries used shall be heavy duty and rechargeable; primary cell batteries of any type will not be acceptable
• In any installation, the minimum number of fittings required shall not be less than two
