What is Emergency Lighting?
Emergency lighting has to provide defined levels of light to enable the safe exit from a building when the mains power has failed.

Emergency lighting is backed up by a battery that is designed to come on automatically when there is a power failure or outage. Emergency lights are standard in all new commercial and high occupancy residential buildings and most building codes now require that they are installed in older buildings.
