Emergency Light Tests – In the event of a fire, emergency light systems can save lives!
Every second counts when evacuating a building, so it is vital to ensure your Emergency Lights and Exit systems are fully operational.
Fully Wired Electrical Services can provide your business with six monthly onsite testing to ensure all your emergency lighting systems are maintained and fully functional to Australian Standard AS2293.
Legislation – If there is emergency lighting in your Body Corporate common areas, then this legislation applies to you.
Emergency lights must be tested every 6 months as per the ASNZS 2293.2.1995
This standard outlines that periodic inspection procedures are required for all emergency evacuation lighting so that they are ready and working at all times. The standard states that common areas, such as unit buildings or anywhere that has central and single emergency lighting, must be completed no greater than every six months.
