Why is testing necessary?
The Australian and NZ Standard AS2293.2 requires emergency evacuation lighting systems to be inspected and maintained in accordance with the procedures specified in the Standard. It sets out the periodic inspection and maintenance necessary to ensure the emergency lighting system will be in a state of readiness for operation at all times.
No-one would argue that emergency lighting is critical to safety and must therefore be tested and maintained. However manual testing of emergency lights is time consuming and laborious. In larger buildings it may require several qualified technicians or trained staff, and can seem never-ending. As well as costly it is also disruptive, particularly in buildings such as hospitals or schools.
We recommend a system that ensures the safety and integrity of your emergency lighting system with revolutionary automated emergency monitoring and reporting. It can simply integrate with DALI on the same lighting network, or on a dedicated DALI emergency lighting network. The initial investment may be a little more, but the payback is swift and ongoing with the immense savings in labour this system provides.
