AFS Installations, your local electricians, has been installing emergency lighting for our commercial customers in Aldershot, Farnborough, Farnham and Camberley for over 10 years. Emergency lighting is lighting that when the electrical supply is lost, your normal lighting obviously fails.  
The loss of power could be down to a fire or a power cut or even a fault. This will probably lead to complete darkness which could cause your office employees or yourself a potential hazard through trip hazards or even just panic. 

Emergency Lighting Placement 

Emergency lighting is normally placed in a way as to help occupants leave the building in a safe manner. Normally emergency lights would be situated along corridors above doors in offices and exits. The design of light these days can vary from the basic florescent to the more aesthetically pleasing designer light, each with varying degrees of illumination. 
Whatever emergency light you choose to have, all commercial buildings must have emergency lighting fitted in accordance with British Standards, IEE wiring regulations and local authorities, this can be in many forms but normally it is broken down into two aspects:
