Lighting for Education Emergency

Emergency lighting in educational facilities is crucial, and is a priority for facility managers of universities, colleges and schools.

BS 5266 is a legal code of practice, stipulating that emergency lighting must highlight all possible escape routes to the “place of safety”, usually at an assembly point outdoors.

Education buildings receive a number of visitors who may not be familiar with the surroundings, including young children, and contain rooms with minimal access to natural light, such as toilets and storerooms.

The emergency lighting, therefore, needs to illuminate the floor to a minimum of 1 lux in the event of an emergency. This will make escape routes clear, to avoid panic and allow occupants to exit the building.
