Have you ever taken the time to look at the emergency backup lighting in a building? Hopefully, you have never been in an emergency where you needed that lighting to keep you safe. Still, if you have, you know how important it is to have the illumination provided by those lights, even during a power outage. Emergency lighting is those lights that stay illuminated or light up during periods of emergency so that people can safely and quickly find their way to the exit doors. Suppose you own or manage a commercial building like a warehouse or office in Elkridge. In that case, you are responsible for ensuring your emergency backup lighting is up to code and operational for the safety of your visitors and employees. Call TriStar Electrical, and we can help you with your emergency backup LED lighting needs.
Understanding The Importance Of Emergency Backup LED Lighting
Several different types of lighting make up the complete emergency lighting system, including emergency exit signage, path lighting, and stairwell lighting. TriStar Electric understands all of the regulations and codes that govern emergency lighting and the emergency backup battery units that support them, and we can help you with all your installation needs. We understand that the quality and placement of your emergency lighting are vital to its effectiveness so that no one gets lost, trapped, or confused during an emergency. The most common places to install emergency backup lights include:
- Along efficient exit paths
- Exit signs
Your emergency backup lights get installed in these locations and fixtures, and they turn on as soon as the main power goes out so that occupants can exit the building and get to safety as quickly as possible.
The Benefits of LED Lights
For good reasons, LED lighting is the standard for new constructions and new installations. LEDs use considerably less energy for the same lighting capacity and do it with less waste (specifically, they don’t get hot). Because of this, LEDs put less strain on the backup battery systems. LEDs also last longer than other types of lighting, making them a smart financial choice, and you also do not have to worry about them spontaneously burning out when they have only been there a few months. Finally, they will not shatter under volatile conditions like a fire.
