Emergency and Exit Light Testing

How Often Do I Need An 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 and exit light 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 per emergency exit signs standards. 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. Fire emergency exit signs are equally as important as other fire equipments required by the council.

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. Proper installation of electrical emergency lightings and exits is an important aspect of fire protection.

A thorough inspection and compliance with the current safety standards by a trained technician will help identify any faults in your lighting system.
