Maintaining your emergency lights units is important to ensure that lighting tubes are actually working and that the back-up battery is capable to last the full duration required by the standards. The ?responsible person? of a business or organisation ensures that the periodic checks are carried out and documented in a fire safety logbook. Below we have provided an overview of the testing procedure and testing frequencies.
Please note that when you purchase emergency lights from Elextric you will be offered to register for a free emergency lights test reminder at the end of the checkout process. We will then email or text you to remind you when the tests are due.
To make the testing of your emergency lighting units quicker you can install?self-test emergency lighting. These units automatically replicate a power cut, checking their own circuitry and functionality and should a fault be found the units create both a visual and audible warning.
Standards BS 5266-8:2004 and BS EN 50172:2004 describe the testing of emergency lighting units.
