Emergency Lighting Design

Emergency lighting consultancy, design, supply and compliance

What are the three vital components of a successful emergency lighting design?

Every building has different emergency lighting requirements and many local councils have differing demands. Emergency lighting is one area where the risks of non-compliance can be truly catastrophic.

To be sure you have a safe and compliant emergency lighting design, make sure you've addressed these three factors:

  1. Your lighting design complies with the NZ Building Code as well as the AS2293 series of standards. These standards help protect people from injury in escape routes if the main lighting source has failed.
  2. The emergency luminaires and escape signs you've selected are best-in-class, produce efficient and effective light for at least 2 hours, and comply with all applicable New Zealand standards.
  3. You've chosen the most effective control and testing system. A good testing system minimises maintenance costs and makes your six-monthly testing as cost-effective as possible.

To tick all these boxes you need the services of an emergency lighting designer who has specialist skills and a thorough knowledge of the relevant standards. You also need access to proven product that's been tested to New Zealand standards and is known to be reliable.

Rexel Lighting can provide this for you. We have a team of seasoned lighting designers, including a full time in-house emergency designer. Our nationwide branch network means the products you need can be delivered to site quickly and correctly.
