Emergency light servicing ensures that when the lights stop working during a fire or evacuation, everyone can still find their way out of danger swiftly and safely. The lighting is a requirement in most non-domestic premises and an annual maintenance test is needed to ensure it’s still in tip-top working condition.

It’s essential that emergency lighting automatically illuminates emergency routes and exits adequately when the main power supply is lost. British Standards 5266-8:2004 and EN 50172:2004 require a monthly test which you should do yourself, and the annual drain test which should be carried out by a service engineer.

How Is Emergency Lighting Tested?

With the monthly self-test, you switch off the mains power supply to the lighting units and ensure all emergency lights are working and illuminated. This is made easier by having a separate switch with a ‘fish key’ installed in the system which means you haven’t got to switch off all power. Record your results and contact us if you require the repair of any defects.

Full emergency light servicing is required annually (although recommended every 6 months in some premises) and requires a trained engineer. They will check your system is fully compliant and switch off the mains power supply to the lighting units, usually for the full three hours. Your emergency lighting should remain on for the whole period, and should any fail, the battery back-up or lighting unit may need replacing.

Currently, we’re able to offer emergency light servicing in London and surrounding areas.

Due to the time required to carry out the tests, consider having your emergency light servicing carried out in the same visit as your fire alarm and fire extinguisher maintenance. This helps to minimise disruption and fills the waiting time of the ‘drain’ test with useful activity. Contact us for a special price if you want all three services carried out together.

How Much Will It Cost?

Unlike many who claim to maintain emergency lights, we’re completely upfront and transparent about our prices. You’ll be hard-pushed to find better value.

Our prices are based on the number of emergency lights installed in your premises, including downlights, bulkheads, and fire exit light signs. Some emergency lights are difficult to tell apart from standard ones. They tend to have a little LED green light somewhere on the body.
