The standard test conducted is a three hour battery test, aimed at ascertaining whether all of your emergency lighting remains suitably luminescent for a period not less than three hours. The following procedure will be followed:
- Prior to the test commencing a check will be carried out against your site drawings to ensure all emergency luminaries have been installed. A record of this inspection will be issued at the completion of the test.
- To test the system the emergency fittings will be checked prior to isolation of power for LED indication of battery charging.
- Isolation of power will be carried out by either local emergency test key switches, or will be isolated at the distribution board.
- Once isolation is complete all emergency lights in the area under test will be checked to ensure the fittings have switched from mains supply to battery.
- Three hours after isolation of power all emergency light fittings in the area under test will be checked to ensure the fittings remain on battery supply and lighting levels will be taken and recorded on the drawings.
- An emergency lighting completion certificate, as required, will be included within our record documentation.
During the testing, should any faults be found, these will be rectified in situ and free of charge should it be a simple solution, otherwise a quotation will be submitted with the report outlining any further required works.
We are also able to offer lighting audits to demonstrate the significant savings that can be made by installing LED systems in place of more traditional lighting solutions.
