Choosing between maintained and non-maintained emergency lighting servicing Manchester
Emergency lighting is a legal requirement for all UK private businesses and public-accessible buildings such as libraries and museums. The main emergency lighting systems used in commercial properties are maintained and non-maintained.

Non-maintained Emergency Lighting
Emergency exit routes need to be illuminated in the event of a power failure. Non-maintained emergency lighting is designed to turn on at the point of a power cut to minimise the commotion that can be caused if a premise suddenly finds itself in darkness due to a power outage.
Non-maintained emergency lighting is connected to the premises’ lighting circuitry and is mainly used in offices and factories where staff are likely to be familiar with the locations of the emergency exits.
Maintained emergency lighting
A great advantage of maintained emergency lighting is that it is permanently illuminated at a low level of lighting at all times. This is especially useful for patrons to be able to see the exit routes in darkened arenas such as cinemas, discotheques and theatres.
