Using specialised electrical testing key to ensure fire alarm and exit lighting is still working


Fully Qualified Engineers Test and Inspect Emergency Lighting Installations

Our engineers undertake the testing of your Emergency Lighting to the highest standard complying with the relevant standards.

Emergency lighting systems illuminate escape routes to help ensure that building occupants can escape safely in the event of a mains power failure. ECS provide a range of Emergency Lighting testing services to ensure your installations are well maintained and in good working order so that you can be assured that your systems will work when you need them and guide building users to evacuate safely.

Where emergency lighting systems are installed they are required to provide lighting to escape routes for a minimum of 3 hours in accordance with BS5266. The British Standard also specifies where lights need to be sited and the level of illumination required.

Providing Quality Emergency Lighting Testing Services

ECS will:

  • Carry out 3 hour emergency light battery discharge tests and identify any fittings that fail to provide the required lighting levels at the end of the test period.
  • Provide a report on all fittings identifying any failures.
  • Ensure all fittings are appropriately labelled and identifiable
  • Check plans and drawings are up to date
  • Advise on any improvements required to bring systems up to the British Standard
  • Provide a test log book to enable clients to record future checks

“ECS have assisted us with our EICRs (Electrical Installation Condition Reports) over the last few years. They have completed electrical safety tests in both our general needs properties as well as our larger Retirement Living and Flexi Care Schemes. They provide an extremely efficient and professional service. ECS have a full understanding of what we require from them and provide full and detailed certification as well as extensive photos of each site. All the engineers are fully qualified and have current DBS certification provided for each operative before any programme gets underway.

We would have no hesitation in recommending ECS to other Housing Associations and trusts.”
