PRM Fire is licensed to inspect, test and service all aspects of emergency lighting in accordance with Australian standards, to ensure that all lights are functional in the case of an emergency.


Exit and Emergency Lights are an essential part of any safety system within a building and consists of lighting units and illuminated exist signs used to guide occupants along a safe exit route in the event of loss of mains power to a building.

There are three main types of emergency lighting

  • Non-maintained – the light units will only illuminate when connection to the main power supply fails

  • Maintained – the light units are illuminated always using the same lamps for both normal and emergency operation

  • Sustained – the light units are fitted with two sets of lamps, one connected to the main power supply and the other, which operates from a battery supply in the event of a main power failure.

Emergency lights should be installed to cover the following areas:

  • Each exit door

  • Escape routes

  • Intersections of corridors

  • Outside each final exit and on external escape routes

  • Emergency escape signs
