When a fire occurs in a building there is a chance it may affect the local lighting circuits, making it difficult to escape. A well designed emergency lighting system allows occupants to reach a place of safety easily and will also identify the position of the buildings fire safety provisions.
Fireskills can design, supply, install, commission and maintain emergency lighting systems that comply with BS 5266. We promote the use of modern low powered Emergency Lights because of the savings that can be made in running costs, and the associated benefits to our environment.
Emergency lighting and escape route lighting should be tested and inspected regularly and our experienced engineers will support your business in the best possible way.

Fireskills were instructed to service an emergency lighting system in a local care home. With elderly residents it is important that the light levels take account of the specific needs of the residents, many of whom require increased lighting levels.
During the first programmed service the lights only provided 15 minutes of illumination, and this was at a level well below that required.
Fireskills provided the client with a design to show the system required to meet the current Approved Codes of Practice, and supplied a quotation with four options to achieve compliance.
The lighting chosen complied with the requirements of the Codes of Practice, and being modern low powered units also provided the client with a saving in running costs and CO2 emissions.
