In an emergency, be it a significant event like a fire or a minor one like a power outage, your commercial building has emergency backup lighting. Your emergency backup lighting illuminates the safest way out of the building in every commercial building, from the offices to the warehouses to the retail shops. The lights that guide people to safety are an essential part of a building’s emergency plan, and opting for LED lighting ensures that your backup lighting is the best safety lighting you can install. TriStar Electric is here to be your trusted electrical partner for the LED upgrade of your emergency backup lighting in Elkridge.
What is Emergency Backup Lighting?
The most prominent part of a commercial building’s emergency lighting design is the exit signs that differentiate the exterior exit doors from those that don’t lead to the outside. But those aren’t the only emergency lights. Commercial buildings are required to have complete emergency lighting as well, and that lighting is designed to turn on as soon as the building loses power. The emergency lighting system should have path lighting in hallways, stairwells, and lighting above doors, all with EBUs (external backups), so the lighting always has power. Emergency lights should be in any areas where occupants might get trapped or lost without illumination, including:
- Along efficient exit paths
- Exit signs
When emergency backup lights are installed in these locations and fixtures, they turn on as soon as the main power goes out. This helps occupants exit the building and go to safety as quickly as possible. Not only are EBUs required by law to be installed in commercial buildings, but they are essential for complete safety.
Emergency Backup LED Lighting Upgrade
Do you have an existing or older building that you would like to make more energy efficient? TriStar Electric offers an emergency backup LED lighting upgrade, replacing older fluorescent lights with low-energy, long-lasting LEDs.
Why LED Lighting?
LED lighting is a splendid solution for maintaining the most effective emergency backup lights possible. LEDs put less stress on the emergency backup batteries, using less of the battery’s power when active. In a fire or another volatile environment, these LED lights will not shatter, further enhancing their effectiveness. Lastly, they last significantly longer than older-style emergency lights. Today, you cannot find a better alternative to LED emergency backup lights.
