Testing is completed at intervals of six Months and twelve Months. Typically we perform the twelve month testing in line with annual fire safety statement to ensure the council measures are complied with and within 90 days of their reminder letter to you.

The Testing involves running the lights for 90 minutes to test the battery back up as well as other technical checks and observations.

Inspection and Maintenance

Regular testing and corrective repairs are mandatory for your Emergency Lighting System.

What’s Involved in an Emergency Lighting Test

The Test involves an inspection of the device for damage, batteries, brightness, physical condition, electrical connections, state of the globes (black ends) and similar. The device, including “spitfires” and emergency exit signs, are tested at full load (i.e 100%) for 90 minutes as per the Australian standards.

Failure in sustained operations, damaged or worn parts from fatigue, or any other issue which is deemed to compromise Emergency Lights repairs and maintenancethe operation of the device will mean a repair or replacement.

Co-ordination with Occupants

Letting the occupants know emergency lighting testing is taking place ensures a sense of safety for the occupants and expedites the technicians activities on sites. Tenants know a technician will be on site and there will be a minor change in the lighting of the tenancy office / retail space during this time.
This doesn’t mean the room will become dark, as often the emergency lighting is (and should be) on a separate independent circuit).
