Emergency lighting is not exactly the first thing that comes to mind in ensuring your business or strata building is safe, yet it is vitally important. Picture yourself at your desk in your unit or office and all the power has gone out completely. For the people inside your premises, they are at risk unless they can see the emergency exit signs or emergency lights to help them evacuate safely. Installing emergency lighting is a critical aspect of workplace safety. It allows strata residents, staff and clients, navigate a safe path to exit points during emergencies.

Businesses and strata managers need to find electrical contractors that have a comprehensive understanding of emergency lighting regulations. Every step of installing emergency lighting needs to comply with occupational health and safety regulations. If emergency lighting is not correctly installed it will not be able to function as intended. Fix Electrical have the experience to install your emergency lighting to comply with regulations.

Emergency Lighting Testing

All emergency and exit lighting are required to undergo a 90-minute test of the backup battery every 6 months as stated under the Australian Standard AS/NZS2293 Part 2 1995.  If you do not test, inspect and maintain your emergency lighting according to these regulations there are significant penalties. It is the responsibility of the strata manager or business owner to be aware of the inspection and electrical maintenance schedules and ensure compliance.

It is not uncommon to see backup batteries fail due to becoming discharged. Backup batteries may not hold sufficient charge or do not receive a full charge from the power converter. With any emergency lighting failure, it is important to ensure tests are carried out to ensure it is the battery causing problems and not some other electrical fault.  Fix Electrical Contractors have the experienced team to undertake emergency lighting testing for your business or strata.

LED Upgrades

With the cost of electricity continuing to rise, electricity prices can have a significant impact on the running costs of Strata buildings and businesses. Lighting is one of the major contributors to these outgoing costs. Fortunately, lighting in strata buildings and businesses are also one of the quickest areas that money can be saved. With most older strata buildings and offices across Sydney still having highly energy inefficient lighting installed, this places increased pressure on energy bills. Lighting usually accounts for up to 90% of the common property energy bill.

Fix Electrical Contractors are experienced in finding economical solutions to the rising energy costs of energy use and lighting. Ease the financial burden on your building and with the latest LED lighting and smart energy solutions. Upgrading your old inefficient lighting to LED lighting alternatives is one of the quickest and easiest ways you can slash your building’s running costs. In most cases once LED lighting is installed, the savings in energy and maintenance will quickly offset the cost. Start enjoying the benefits of lower energy bills and lower strata maintenance costs.

The cost of servicing, testing and replacing failed emergency lighting is significantly reduced after upgrading to LED lighting. With LEDs reliability and extended lifespan, buildings can enjoy savings for years to come. Typically lighting upgrades generate the highest annual savings on electricity and maintenance. Investing in moving your emergency lighting to LED provides the fastest return on investment.
