Exit and emergency lighting equipment is designed to provide illumination during power outages. Exit signs will also illuminate the path of egress during a power outage or fire emergency. The equipment is made up of a rechargeable battery, a battery charger, one or more light bulbs/lamps, and a circuit board /relay device to turn on the lamps automatically when the building power fails. Batteris are sized to provide eought power in the event of an emergency for an illumination period of at least 1-1/2 hours.
NFPA, OSHA, as well as your local fire marshal have established these standards and expect you to keep your equipment in a functional state. We can provide testing/troubleshooting for your units, replacement batteries, chargers, and bulbs, as needed to keep your emergency lighting units functioning properly. Monthly and Annual inspection options are available to fit your specific needs. When the power goes out, Silco can help keep you out of the dark.
Always Be Prepared! Your best defense against a darkened building is to be certain that your Emergency Lights and Exit Signs are serviced regularly and working properly. Emergency Lights are used to illuminate corridors, stairwells, ramps, escalators and exit passages during critical power-out situations.
Exit Lights point the way to safe exits. If these lights fail to activate, occupants can easily become disoriented and safety becomes threatened. Occupants can be in peril if critical routine maintenance is neglected. When an emergency strikes, it’s far too late. Batteries can lose their charge, charging systems and bulbs can fail, so regular maintenance is a must.
Here’s What We Do For You
Inspection Criteria: Monthly and annual inspections apply to all Emergency Lighting fixtures
- Test integrity of lights and batteries through test button for 30 seconds Check for physical damage Align the beam and tighten if necessary Check AC and charge lamps as applicable
- Full Simulation 90 minute test Disconnect AC power supply to each unit Check battery and lens for corrosion or damage Clean unit and lens as required Adjust beam for proper placement Troubleshoot/Repair: Check charging system voltage, check battery output voltage, check line voltage.
After unit passes inspection, a sticker is placed on the unit to satisfy record keeping requirements. Your Emergency Lights and Exit signs are one of the most important links to a safe escape for building occupants, so it just makes good sense to have a regular, systematic inspection performed by a trained service professional. We have the expertise and training to assure that your emergency lighting units will work when you need them the most, when the lights go out.
