What is Mode of Operation?
The type of premises and what they are used for largely define whether emergency lighting points (luminaires) are either maintained or non-maintained.
Definition of ‘Maintained Emergency Luminaire’
This is a type of lamp/fixture that are active at all times.
What kind of premises would require maintained emergency luminaries?
These lights are often dimmed when the premises are occupied, their presence prevents total darkness.
Definition of ‘Non-maintained Emergency Luminaire’
An emergency light fixture with emergency lamps that only become active when the power supply to the normal lighting circuit fails. This choice is generally suited to a workplace environment where artificial lighting is installed and that the premise is occupied.
How Long Will Emergency Lighting Last?
There is a legislation that says emergency escape lighting has to be active at the systems full potential for 1 hour. The size and complexity of the premises will affect the time duration it takes for occupants to be evacuated.
In certain locations such as sleeping accommodation, an extended duration is often required, this time period should be at least 3 hours.
The BS5266 article contains detailed information that specifies the durations recommended for various premises.
