How often do I need exit and emergency light testing?
Inspections of all emergency luminaries and exit signs to be conducted at 6-monthly intervals, to comply with the AS2293.2 standard for emergency lighting testing & inspection.A trained individual must test and replace any defective lights during the inspection.
For a duration of 90 minutes, a technician will turn the battery charger off and simulate a power outage for each device during a discharge test.
Every emergency light or exit sign must be tested during the tests. There should be an inspection and cleaning of fittings and reflective surfaces along with another test every 12 months and the regular 6-monthly tests.
You could be unaware of potential power failures in your system without a formal discharge test. Instead of simply replacing the battery on your own, it is important that you hire a professional to test your system.
