Emergency Lighting

In the eventuality that mains power fails, legislation requires all occupied buildings to have escape lighting. Abatis are experts within this field.


If you’re a landlord of an HMO or if you have a business premises and employ staff then you have a duty of care and responsibility. In the eventuality that the mains power supply fails, you need to provide occupants with an escape route, with sufficient illumination. Abatis are on hand to help with emergency lighting in Lincolnshire.

Our emergency lighting design & installation service helps ensure that in the event of an emergency or power failure, escape from the building is not hindered by a lack of emergency lighting.

With a dedicated and experienced team, we can design, install and maintain emergency lighting systems to ensure that you are fully compliant with relevant standards.

So whatever the required application and specification, we can tailor an emergency lighting system for you.

We’re members of the ECA and registered with Elecsa and on the Certsure register and we will provide a high standard of installation and compliance with relevant standard BS5266 and BS7671


Maintaining your emergency lighting units is extremely important. You need to ensure that the entire units are actually working. As well as checking that the back-up battery is capable to last the full duration required by the standards.

The “responsible person” of a business or organisation is required to ensure periodic checks are carried out. This servicing also needs to be documented in a fire safety log book.

Abatis provides a comprehensive emergency lighting service package tailored to your requirements. We provide not just the annual tests, but we can also act as your responsible person. This involves carrying out the monthly testing on your behalf, taking away the headache and responsibility of ensuring your system is in full working order.

Duration of Emergency Lighting

When installing a new emergency lighting system, first you need to assess the time require to evacuate the premises. Which depends entirely upon the size and complexity of the building. The minimum duration of escape system emergency lighting is 1 hour, if the premises is likely to be evacuated immediately after a power failure.

For residential properties, or areas where evacuation is not instant (such as accommodation), the emergency lighting system should last for at least 3 hours.

If you are unsure as to the level of emergency lighting that you require, please contact the team at Abatis today. The BS 5266 guide also contains detailed information on this.
