Hot smoke rises rapidly forming a hot layer from the
ceiling downwards, naturally, our reaction forces us close
to the floor where the air is cooler and the smoke less
toxic and dense.
Inevitably building occupants, in often unfamiliar surroundings, are
faced with reduced visibility and poor directional guidance, frequently leading
to panic and disorientation.
As a result, people have been known to die tragically
only a few metres from exits which could have led them to safety. Independent
research has proven low mounted emergency lighting systems continue to
provide a highly visible line of light at, or close to floor level, long after other
lighting systems have been completely obscured by smoke.
Emergency Lighting Systems
Low mounted emergency lighting systems clearly identify the escape path and
illuminate the escape route, thus improving evacuation times, reducing panic and .
ultimately saving lives.
Due to Health and Safety legislation, all buildings in the commercial sector require
an emergency escape lighting installation which complies with the relevant standards.
Low mounted emergency lighting systems can exceed these requirements, providing
long term safety benefits for the protection of the building occupants and the
commercial reputation of building owners. These systems are effective in
both smoke logged and clear air conditions and can be of major life saving importance
in the event of any emergency situation, particularly when smoke may be present.
