Lighting for Escape Routes

Lighting for escape routes must be clearly illuminated and sign-posted, allowing occupants to swiftly evacuate the building. Escape routes, which can include hallways, corridors and stairwells, must be lit to a minimum of 1 lux on the floor along the centre line.

The 1m centre band should be illuminated to at least 0.5 lux. Points of emphasis, such as changes in directions and level, as well as firefighting equipment, must be illuminated to a minimum of 2 lux.
