Emergency Lighting


The Flameguard system, created by Click Scolmore with low energy lighting manufacturer, Energetic, ensures that a visible exit can still be lit in the event of a fire.


daily, all emergency luminaires tested typically for less than 10 minutes every month and for their rated duration every year” adds Daniels.


The stringent testing of all emergency lights can be a costly and time-consuming process. Automatic testing provides a reliable method of regularly checking that the battery is connected and receiving charge, that the lamp will strike correctly when required and that the battery capacity is sufficient to run the lamp for the rated duration period. Having a fully addressable emergency lighting installation that also carries out regular luminaire testing can offer considerable cost benefits, as it will ensure that the testing is automatically carried out when required, thereby ensuring that legal obligations are met and facilities staff can concentrate on other more labour- intensive maintenance work. Because self-testing products offer such an advantage to users, P4 has developed high efficiency battery charging techniques into its range of FASTEL Fully Automatic Self Testing Emergency Lighting. Using high frequency electronic charging with controls to match the exact requirements of the batteries used, P4

have been able to reduce the input power required for its mainstream products to only 3.5W per luminaire when normally running, and only 3.9W when recharging. As emergency lighting may be required for use during testing circumstances, it is important that the light fittings are robust enough to suit all manner of situations. Click Scolmore, a UK based company, have been working in collaboration with world-leading low energy lighting manufacturer, Energetic, to create a range of FlameGuard fittings, designed to fit a wide variety of GU10 and E27 lamps. The energy efficient lamps are fully compliant with Part L1 Building Regulations and they incorporate the high protection FlameGuard system, which provides a fire and acoustic barrier. This means that in the event of a fire, the lights will still be able to provide a visible exit path for anyone needing to exit the building. When considering such an important aspect of lighting design it is important to ensure that you are getting the best possible products for the task at hand. Products that help to ensure that a buildings emergency lighting is easy to install, test and maintain are essential when creating any commercial project.
