Specialist emergency lighting design service

If your premises lacks adequate safety-critical lighting systems for emergency events, we’ll work with you to ensure fixtures are installed where they need to be and that the necessary light levels can be achieved when needed. 

When working with you, we’ll decide on what your emergency lighting system procedure should entail, including:

  • Whether the building should be designed for immediate evacuation in the event of an emergency, or if a “stay put” strategy will be more suitable.
  • How the different areas of your building will be intended to use, such as offices, toilets, disabled toilets, corridors, etc.
  • How many occupants will be in the building at any given time.
  • The number and location of escape routes.

As part of our Emergency Lighting Design service, we’ll carry out a risk assessment to determine what risks exist in various areas of the building, and what measures can be put in place to mitigate them. Only once the consultation and risk assessment have taken place can the process of designing your emergency lighting system begin.

This next step will involve deciding on what types of emergency lighting are needed, and where they are to be located. And that’s where our team will come in. We’ll shoulder the responsibility and carry out this entire process to ensure complete compliant, operational efficiency, and safety for you, your people, and your site.

Some of the other international players don’t even have nationwide coverage. BES was able to offer us local resources across the country for our complex operations, there is no other provider that could give us that.
