We supply a comprehensive range of conventional bulkhead fittings, illuminated fire exit signage, frogeye or twin-spot fittings and the latest in LED alternative fittings. Replacement re-chargeable batteries to suit.

Emergency Lighting – Maintenance

In the event of an agreement to provide your on-going corrective and preventive maintenance of any emergency lighting system we recommend that Preventative Maintenance checks to be will normally be carried out every six months as a minimum in accordance with the above testing requirements. In some instances the number of inspections will increase to counter the lack in regular testing carried out by any responsible person on site if he/she does not exist.

You will be informed when these tests are to take place. Under a current maintenance contract, we will be obliged to include a call-out facility with a minimum response time (the standard is eight hours) to ensure any emergency breakdowns are attended to in an efficient manner.
