Exit & Emergency Lighting Services
In the event of a fire or other emergency, reliable lighting is essential for protecting the health and safety of employees, customers, and others who need to make a swift exit from the structure.
There are many types of emergency lighting that you can add to your facility. These include thermoplastic lights, which you can use indoors within hallways, warehouses, and office spaces. There are also steel lights that are available in a wide range of voltage and wattage capacities. These are ideal for warehouses and industrial facilities because they can provide sufficient illumination within large spaces.
There are also waterproof lights that can be positioned within walk-in freezers, outside the structure, and in other areas where temperatures and moisture conditions can cause damage to other types of lights. Similarly, there are Class 1 Division 1 and 2 emergency lights specifically designed to operate within hazardous locations—for instance, in areas where flammable gases are present.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I Need Emergency Lighting?
All public facilities are required to maintain adequate and reliable lighting in the event of power failure. The requirements vary by jurisdiction as well as the type of business, i.e. government agencies, health care facilities, etc.
Are There Purely Battery-Powered Exit Signs?
NFPA 101 is very specific, and there are no approved battery-operated exit signs. Battery backup exit signs must be hard-wired into the structure’s electrical supply. These will recharge once the power is restored. However, batteries do fail, and any damage or deficiency discovered during testing requires battery replacement.
How Often Should Emergency Lights and Exit Signs Be Tested?
NFPA 101 requires exit and emergency signs to undergo monthly and annual testing. Monthly tests should run for 30 seconds, and annual tests should run for 90 minutes.
