What are Emergency Evacuation Lights?
Emergency evacuation lighting systems are in place to ensure that during an emergency, people can find their way to the nearest exit. The systems are fitted with battery backups that will last 90 minutes in the event of power failure, allowing for individuals to safely proceed to an exit with the guidance of an emergency evacuation lighting system.
