Sydney Emergency Light Testing

Safe Evacuation in an Emergency

Emergency lights are designed to help occupants exit the building safely in a major emergency, which is why having them tested on a regular basis is important.

Stay Compliant with Building Regulations

AS/NZS 2293 provides recommendations for emergency light design, installation, maintenance and testing, helping building managers and employers stay compliant.

Keep Your Workforce Protected

We help ensure your exit lights are working in the event of a fire. This helps to protect your workforce by reducing their risk of injury and saving lives.

Types of Emergency Lights

Emergency exit lights come in three main types: sustained, non-maintained and maintained exit lights. They are designed to help occupants get out of the building safely in an emergency and are typically tested every six months.



Sustained exit lights have two bulbs, with one working at any one time. One lamp is connected to the 240V mains. The other only activates during a power failure.



Non-maintained exit lights are constantly on charge and usually illuminate when the power goes off.



Maintained exit lights are powered by both regular power and a battery backup. The battery backup turns on when the main power fails.

Why Emergency Lighting is Important?

In case of a fire, emergency or major power failure, safe evacuation is vital. For this reason, it is ideal for employers and building managers to ensure emergency lights are visible and functional.


Requirement for Emergency Lights on Every Building Floor

The Building Code of Australia recommends emergency lights on each storey of a building with over 300m2 in floor space for safer evacuation.


Ensures Proper View of Exits in An Emergency

According to AS/NZS 2293, exit and emergency signs and lights are expected to be illuminated for at least 90 minutes, so exits are easily identifiable.


Makes Evacuation Easier and Safer

When there's no daylight or exit lighting, it can be difficult to find your way out in an emergency. Emergency lights make evacuation easier and safer.
