Emergency Lighting

Installation, repairs & testing of emergency & exit lights

Emergency lighting is a essential safety feature in many commercial or multi storey residential buildings which activates in the event of a power failure or emergency situation. Emergency and exit lights visually indicate the safest route for occupants to exit the building, as well as the location of fire extinguishers and other safety equipment. They are commonly installed in corridors and stairways.

Whether you need the installation of emergency lights or routine testing, you can reply on Hanson Electrical for reliable services. We are your local lighting experts offering installation, repairs and testing of emergency and exit lights for residential buildings or commercial properties. Our licensed electricians can also create a customised testing and maintenance schedule to keep your building safe and compliant with the local regulations.


Difference between Maintained and Non-maintained emergency lights

  • Maintained emergency lights - These lighting fixtures are connected to the mains power supply of the building and are turned on 24/7.
  • Non-maintained emergency lights - They are backed by battery supply and can work for 90 minutes in the event of a power outage.
Exit Light

Different Types of Emergency Lights

Exit Lighting

Exit lights are used to indicate exit paths for the safe evacuation of occupants in a building.

Emergency Batten Lights

They are used commonly in warehouses and car parks and provide high visibility in large spaces.

Oyster Lights

They can be directly mounted to the ceiling and are energy-efficient and cost-saving options.

Spotfire Lights

They are compact and can be mounted directly on the ceiling. Mostly used in spaces where aesthetics are a major concern. We recommend the installation of LED lights as they are both energy and cost-efficient.

At Hanson Electric, we provide installation, repairs and testing for all types of emergency lighting systems. We only use high-quality products and provide a lifetime guarantee on all our jobs. Give us a call and we can help you with complete emergency lighting services for both residential and commercial needs.

Emergency Light Testing and Maintenance

Emergency lights should comply with the Australian Standards AS 2293 and Building Code of Australia. These standards provide a guideline on the design, installation, testing and maintenance of the emergency lighting systems installed in residential complexes and commercial buildings. According to AS 2293.2, emergency lights should be tested every 6 months by licensed professionals.

Our master electricians are licensed to work with emergency lighting systems. We provide comprehensive services for emergency lights including:

  • Visual inspection of all exit and emergency lighting
  • 90-minute testing for all emergency lights simulating a power failure
  • Replacing batteries and lamps if needed
  • Checking the operation and signage for all lights
  • Record the test results in electronic format for OH&S purposes
  • Report the findings
