An emergency light is a battery-operated luminaire that automatically turns on when a building loses electricity. Exit lighting, lighted emergency exit signs, high-risk task-area illumination, and standby lighting are all examples of emergency lighting. Emergency lighting is required in commercial, industrial, and some residential buildings, as defined by the Australian building code classes.
A functional emergency evacuation and lighting system must be installed on every story with a floor space of 300m2 or larger to fulfill Australian Standards for emergency lighting and to comply with the National Construction Code of Australia. Every six months, emergency lighting testing is needed by law to guarantee that the system is fault-free.
Emergency lighting lights that are on at all times, as well as main failure outages, are called maintained luminaires. The term “non-maintained luminaire” refers to lighting that is provided solely by battery backup during a power loss. Furthermore, switch-maintained luminaires are emergency lighting lights that provide illumination by an external switch and during a power loss.
A light source with an emergency power supply and related charging and control equipment is referred to as a centrally supplied luminaire. The emergency power source is usually in a distant room or enclosure, and it may be in a room with battery systems related to building monitoring, fire protection, or evacuation systems.
An emergency exit lighting system must last at least one hour. The one-hour duration should only be utilized if the premises are promptly vacated in the event of a power outage and not reoccupied until the batteries have been restored to full capacity.
Emergency lighting should be connected to its power source at all times, although it does not have to be lighted at all times. Self-contained emergency light fittings (light fittings with their batteries) can be placed as either maintained or non-maintained.
