Emergency Lighting Systems Provider
Why Use Light Affects
"The mind-set of doing things as cheaply as possible and passing on responsibility for problems and shortcomings to others must stop. Everyone’s focus must be on doing the right things because it is their responsibility as part of a system which provides buildings that are safe and sustainable for those who will live in and use them for many decades".
- Dame Judith Hackitt
Emergency lighting is generally seen to be purely a fire safety provision.
While this is a vital safety feature, its purpose is to provide light in the event of a power failure.
When evaluating an emergency lighting scheme, an assessment of the hazards present during a failure of the normal lighting should be undertaken. These would include evacuation of the building in the event of an emergency, but also operating vital equipment, safe movement through the space and preventing panic, amongst others.
Every building will have differing criteria, so it is important that each safety system is designed to reflect this.
At Light Affects we understand this and do not adopt a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
Our specialists are qualified lighting designers and trained to meet the demands of current safety legislation and standards.
Emergency lighting is our prime business, not an add on or loss leader to procure other works.
On completion our work is certified and carries the BAFE assurance guarantee.
If you wish to discuss your building’s safety lighting system we offer an initial hour long consultancy session free of charge.
Light Affects holds accreditations and membership of industry bodies and regulators, to ensure piece of mind to our clients and guarantee our legal competence
