For residential and commercial premises
Alongside installing and maintaining all necessary and suitable fire safety equipment, emergency exit lighting are also required in all buildings in Australia, as per Section D2.7 in Vol. 1, Amendment 1 of the National Construction Code (NCC), developed by the Australian Building Codes Board.
Because installing emergency exit lighting requires working with electrical components, you’ll want to ensure that your accredited fire safety technicians also offer specialised commercial electrical services.
That’s precisely why our team at Alexon have taken efforts to provide superior electrical services, including the installation and testing of emergency exit lighting, as well as fault-finding and general maintenance of all electrical fire safety equipment. Using Alexon fire safety technicians will help ensure that your building or work premises complies with Australian construction and work health and safety standards. Contact the team at Alexon to organise your emergency exit light installation today.
Inspect and test
Your building’s emergency exit lighting should be tested regularly to ensure that exit signage remains undamaged and that lightbulbs or tube lights that are illuminating the emergency exit signage are in working order or are replaced when required.
There are multiple reasons why exit signage must be illuminated in commercial or residential buildings. One of the most compelling reasons is to cut through thick smoke and lead building occupants towards emergency exits in the event that a fire originates on your business premises or in any surrounding interior spaces in the commercial building where your business is located.
Illuminated exit lighting also provides clarity surrounding the layout of a residential or commercial building to visitors. If an exit isn’t clearly marked, occupants of that building may not be inclined to use that doorway under assumptions that it may not be an exit, or that it may not be for public use. In this regard, emergency exit light testing can help reduce the risks of blown bulbs confusing building occupants in the event that that exit needs to be used.
As testing your emergency exit lights will ensure that your exits are clearly visible in the event of an emergency, it’s imperative that building managers and business owners alike take measures to stay on top of their emergency light testing, from the first day the lights were installed and over the foreseeable future.
Importance of emergency lighting
All buildings in Australia are required to be fitted with fire safety equipment like sprinklers and smoke alarms as well as fire exits. As such, building owners are required to routinely enlist the support of fire safety technicians to conduct maintenance of all fire equipment and safety tools that have been installed in the building.
As fire equipment like fire doors, fire extinguishers, and fire alarms, are designed to be the first line of defence in the event of a fire, the importance of fire equipment maintenance simply cannot be overstated. But fire equipment is only half of the equation when it comes to investing in fire safety for your building. Investing in emergency lighting is important for every occupant's safety.

Emergency exit lights are usually LED lights. There are also various types of emergency exit lights depending on the building’s layout, use and occupancy. For example, a maintained light is on 24/7, even during the event of a power outage. On the other hand, non-maintained emergency lights are lights that will only illuminate after a power failure. On top of this, there are many other kinds of emergency exit lights, so discussing this with your fire safety professional is the best option to determine what is best for your situation.
Emergency lights illuminate the path to the exit to guide people out safely, while exit signs are the illuminated signs located above the exits, staircases and doors of your building. Emergency lights show the escape pathway, but exit lights illuminate the exit itself.
There are many different areas where emergency lights must be installed. This can include: along escape routes, staircases, escalators, above fire safety equipment, at exit doors, large rooms, enclosed space and more.
Your exit and emergency lights must be tested every 6-months. The test takes 90-minutes and if any light fittings fail it, we will quote you for their replacement.
We replace failed light fittings with new LED fittings - these are significantly cheaper to run, do not require globe replacements, and come with a 12-month warranty.
