IS YOUR BUSINESS EMERGENCY LIGHTING UP TO PAR?
You do your best to keep your business up and running safely, but occasionally the weather or equipment failure can cause a power outage. Will your precious customers be safe? Will they exit your establishment with a favorable opinion? As with most safety features, you don’t fully appreciate emergency lighting and exit signs until you need them.
Proper lighting can help illuminate areas that may cause customers to slip, trip and fall. Steps or other hazards can be hidden by darkness or shadows.
WHERE TO INSTALL EMERGENCY LIGHTING
It’s easy to grasp the importance of emergency lights and exit signs, but do you know where to install them? Emergency lighting is generally regulated by building code. Common required areas include:
- Internal rooms
- Large storage areas without windows
Also, always keep in mind:
- Lights must be aimed to illuminate the walkway. Bulbs that point toward the ceiling or wall don’t meet code requirements, even if they’re installed in the proper locations.
- Emergency light fixtures must be spaced to prevent excessively bright and dark spots.
- If a building is occupied at night, there must usually be provision for emergency lighting in all areas, including those that are naturally lit during the day.
SOMETIMES EXIT LIGHTS JUST AREN’T ENOUGH
Commercial, industrial, institutional, educational, religious, medical, and many other building types generally require emergency lighting. Their exit routes—including hallways, stairwells, and corridors—must be illuminated with emergency backup lights so anyone with normal vision can see the path to the exit. Backup lights are intended to ensure people understand from which doors to safely evacuate the building.
But what if your business isn’t big enough to warrant full backup lighting in addition to your exit signs? Thanks to the invention of the power outage light bulb, everyone can now have a hands-free emergency light.
Safelumin power outage light bulbs automatically switch to battery when your power goes out. Safelumin works as a normal light bulb until a power failure. Since the bulbs operate like everyday LEDs, they are easy to install in your lamps and fixtures. They even have a test button to assure you that the battery is charged and ready to go.
The advantages of Safelumin light bulbs are many:
- They are less expensive than an independent backup system.
- Ease of installation is unequaled. Just screw them in anywhere a standard light bulb can be used.
- Safelumin bulbs are flexible and their location doesn’t need to be fixed. Put them wherever they are needed.
- There won’t be a loss of light when your central system goes down.
- No storage or battery room is required.
- Testing is easy to assure your backup lighting will be there when you need it.
