Emergency and exit lighting requirements
It is important that exit and emergency lighting comes on in the event the normal lighting in the normal lighting in the building fails during a fire. The light needs to illuminate brightly and for a sufficient amount of time to guide the occupants out of the building safely during an emergency. Emergency and exit lights must offer simple guidance on positioning, must be placed at a minimum height level, including having acceptable glaring levels and testing routinely to ensure they are in working order. Based on the regulations, emergency and exit lighting mention where the luminaries should be positioned:
Alongside escape routes
At every directional change
Adjacent to every trip hazard or step
Over every flight of stairs
Close to any first-aid zones
Close to firefighting equipment
Outside every final exit
It is highly recommended that a lot of planning and thought should be given when installing emergency and exit lights in a building to guide the evacuees to safety in the event of a fire. Also, regular testing of exit and emergency lighting equipment is crucial.

Various types of emergency and exit lights:
A wall-mounted emergency and exit sign is widely used in commercial properties. This signage is suitable for hallways or mounting directly above a door. These lighting fixtures have an estimated lamp life of 40,000 hours. It comes in two types maintained and non-maintained. Maintained lighting allows for it to be switched on at all times. If there is a power outage, the emergency exit sign will automatically come on; two live feeds are required, one switched and one unswitched. Non-maintained lighting cannot be switched on and will automatically turn on if there is a power outage. This only requires a single unswitched live feed.
An aesthetically-pleasing designed LED emergency exit sign. It is suitable for commercial and large residential buildings. Like a wall-mounted exit and emergency lighting, this also has two types maintained and non-maintained.
This type of emergency and exit lighting is suspended by chains that can be adjusted in length to point the evacuees to the nearest exit. They can be constantly lit or only be lit in the event of a power failure. They are quick and easy to install, requiring very little manpower. Additionally, they also reduce your electric bills significantly because of the LED technology used. LED bulbs can last for several years without needing to be changed.
