Emergency Lighting, which is required in both commercial properties and multi-storey dwellings, has recently been introduced and launched by Aurora Lighting. Jeff Richardson, Aurora Lighting’s Sales Director of UK Trade, reveals that providing all the lighting necessary to accommodate every project is Aurora’s objective.
Aurora Lighting has launched an all new comprehensive range of Emergency lighting as part of its ever growing commercial lighting range. For the first time, when looking for products that are required for different project applications, everything can be purchased from Aurora, including Emergency Lighting.
Emergency lighting is usually required to operate fully automatically and give illumination of a sufficiently high level to enable all occupants to evacuate the premises safely. Most new buildings have emergency lighting installed during construction; the design and type of equipment being specified by the architect in accordance with current Building Regulations and any local authority requirements.
Regulations state that emergency lighting is required in all commercial buildings, for example, hotels, clubs, hospitals, schools, offices and shops, but also in the common areas of shared dwellings such as an apartment block.
Aurora’s new range includes an Emergency Bulkhead, Twin Spot, Wall Mounted Slim Exit Box, Blade, Exit Sign and Surface Mounted Downlight. The range includes a choice of both maintained and non-maintained solutions plus manual test and self test options, designed for use in a wide range of applications.
The Surface Mounted/Recessed Downlight is perfect for use on concrete ceilings, but it also has a recess option. All of Aurora’s emergency products are mains powered, resulting in a faster and cheaper installation, and one where standard wiring material may be used. It also means low maintenance costs due to only periodic test and general cleaning required and low hardware equipment costs (no requirement for extended wiring, special ventilation etc).
Aurora’s new Emergency range has been added to its increasing commercial range, which includes panels, commercial downlights, linears, high bays, spotlights and floodlights.
