Ensuring the safety and well-being of individuals in any setting is of utmost importance and should always be prioritized. One way to achieve this is through the installation of emergency lighting systems to provide ample lighting in the event of a power outage or any other unforeseen circumstances that could lead to reduced visibility or imminent danger. These systems typically function through the use of batteries that can power the luminaire, allowing for a continuous and reliable source of light even when the mains are not present. Employing such measures can help to prevent or minimize damage or fatalities that may occur as a result of inadequate lighting, particularly in emergency situations where time is of the essence. In summary, emergency lighting is a mandatory requirement that should always be taken seriously for the overall safety and protection of people in any given environment.

It is of utmost importance to ensure that emergency lighting is installed in any area where a mains failure could occur and leave the public or workers in darkness. This is not only a recommendation but a compulsory requirement under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993. To guarantee the safety of your employees and the public, installed emergency lighting must comply with strict mandatory performance standards set out in VC 8055. These standards are in place to ensure that emergency lighting performs adequately in emergency situations.

The standards that emergency lighting must adhere to are outlined in SANS 1464 Part 22, which is specifically designed to safeguard individuals in emergency situations. Failure to comply and ensure that your emergency lighting is up to the mandatory performance standards can result in heavy fines and legal action. Therefore, make sure you install emergency lighting that performs optimally and complies with legal regulations to avoid any legal issues.


All our products are designed to meet the stringent South African Bureau of Standards (otherwise known as SABS) requirements in terms of performance, reliability and safety (SABS Standards are based on international IEC Standards).
