For commercial buildings, emergency lighting is an important part of the accessibility of the building. Often, emergency lights aid navigation during the nighttime hours both inside and out. There is an array of types of emergency lighting out there and they are available in a wide range of styles that will function efficiently when installed correctly.
Test your emergency lighting regularly, they must be tested monthly for commercial buildings and at least annually for inspection if you have them inside a public building or your home.
LED lighting for emergency lights is a great option as they give off an excellent bright light with a small amount of energy.
Make sure you meet the code requirement set up by various authorities like the National Fire Protection Association and the Occupational Safety and health Administration. Make sure you have a professional install and plan your emergency lighting system accurately. For your home, if you choose to install emergency lighting (although not required) it is just as easy to set it up on your own as the homeowner.
