Will Your Emergency Lights and Lighting Work WhenYou Need Them?
Emergency lights and emergerncy lighting provides lighting in corridors, stairwells, ramps, escalators, aisles, and exit passageways during power outages. If your emergency lights fail to operate properly, the building occupants can become disoriented.
Routine maintenance of emergency lights and emergency lighting is frequently overlooked until and emergency occurs--and then its too late. Regular maintenance is required by NFPA Standard No. 101, chapter 31, section 1.3.7.
Factory trained Reliable Fire Equipment Technicians Perform Testing and Maintenance on emergency lights, and provide you with the written records required by law. A full discharge of each unit must be performed annually.
|NFPA Standard No. 101-31-1.3.7|
|"A functional test shall be conducted on every required emergency lighting system at 30-day intervals for a minimum of 30 seconds. An annual test shall be conducted for the 1 1/2 hour duration. Equipment shall be fully operational for the duration of the test. Written records of visual inspections and tests shall be kept by the owner for inspection by the authority having jursidiction."|
