The Importance of Emergency Lighting and Signage Being Present

Emergency lighting and signage are designed to provide visibility and guidance during emergencies such as fires, hurricanes, power outages, or other situations when standard lighting fails. These systems our experts can install in place will help occupants navigate safely towards an exit and avoid hazards. These are essential to mitigating panic, further reducing any risk of injury, and ensuring a timely evacuation.

Regulatory Requirements

Compliance with emergency lighting and signage regulations is mandated by various building codes, such as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 101 Life Safety Code. These regulations discuss the type of lighting and signage, their placement, and maintenance protocols. Give us a call for us to handle the process for you (832)653-2598.

Key requirements typically include the following:

Illuminated Exit Signs: These signs will be placed above exit doors and along escape routes. They will be clear and remain illuminated during any emergency when standard lighting fails.

Emergency Lighting: This lighting will provide adequate illumination for all exit routes in your business or property. It will automatically activate in the event of a power failure and remain functional for a specified duration, typically 90 minutes.

Directional Signs: These signs will guide any occupants on the property to the nearest exit. Our licensed technicians will place these at strategic points throughout the facility, especially ones with complex layouts. Give us a call to have our technicians visit your property at (832)653-2598.

Routine Testing and Maintenance: Regular testing and maintenance of emergency lighting and signage are critical to ensure proper functionality during any emergency. This can include monthly visual inspections and annual full-duration tests that Maverick Fire & Safety can provide for you.
