Emergency LED Lighting
Emergency LED lighting systems and LED Exit Signs utilise the latest LED technology as an alternative to traditional incandescent and fluorescent light sources.
Over the past few years, advances in the development of LED technology have brought about several distinct advantages for emergency LED lighting compared with conventional light sources.
One of the main benefits of using emergency LED lighting is that it is cheaper to run; using only a fraction of the energy required by conventional emergency lighting. Moreover, less energy is emitted as heat, making LED lighting more efficient and friendlier to the environment.
Emergency LED lighting can also be more aesthetically pleasing as the design can be more flexible and is not constrained in the same way as its bulky conventional counterparts.
Just like conventional emergency lighting, emergency LED lighting can be made up of maintained luminaires or non-maintained luminaires.
- Maintained emergency luminaires are typically used within public places like clubs and halls where the lighting is dim and the emergency lighting prevents total darkness. Some maintained luminaires can also be used in place of normal lighting, serving a dual-purpose. They will continue to provide light for a number of hours in the event of a power cut.
- Non-maintained emergency luminaires only provide illumination when there is an interruption to the power supply.
