Uniformity better than 40:1 5 Areas to be covered Planning emergency lights in your projects is not just about showing users the escape route. Lights must be carefully located to provide sufficient illumination according to the different areas of premises and must conform to the latest legislation. An emergency escape lighting system should normally cover the following areas: Exit doors and escape routes High risk areas Change of direction Stairways so that each flight receives a dequate light Changes in floor level Intersections of corridors Fire fighting equipment Final exit door and outside building Anti-panic areas Each area has their own requirements and needs to be looked at individually. 6 Escape route lighting Escape route lighting has a superior objective to contribute to a safe evacuation from an area when normal illumination fails. That part of the building, which is prepared for evacuation, should be easily identified and used with great safety. Luminaires prepared for escape route lighting are divided into route lighting and sign lighting. Route lighting Regulation recommends the provision of a horizontal illumination at floor level on the centre line of a defined escape route (permanently unobstructed) not less than 1 Lux. For escape routes of up to 2m wide, 50% of the route width should be lit to a minimum of 0.5 lux. For anti-panic areas a minimum level of 0.5 lux is required excluding a 0.5m border to the perimeter of the area. Route lighting should provide ample lighting to make an evacuation possible in a safe way. For escape routes up to 2 m widths the horizontal illumination on the floor should not be less than 1 lux on the centre line of the escape route and outside the centre line the illumination should be minimum 50% of the lowest level of the centre line. The ratio between maximum to minimum illumination level should not exceed 40:1. Wider escape routes can be treated as a number of 2m wide bands. The actual degree of illumination should be closely related to the nature of both the premises and its occupants with special consideration being given to old person’s homes, hospitals, crowded areas such as pubs, discos and supermarkets, and to whether or not the premises are residential. Route lighting should provide a mple lighting to make an evacuation possible in a safe way. 0.5 lx 1 lx 0.5 lx X/2 m Xm 8 Escape route lighting Emergency escape signs Exit direction signs should mark changes in direction of emergency exit escape routes where it is not possible to spot the emergency exit. Signs directing escape routes should be illuminated or externally illuminated. Sign height “H” should consider the reading Along with route lighting the escape signs distance and be dimensioned according to shall lead the users to safety. the following formula: • For internally illuminated signs: Max reading distance = 200 x H • For externally illuminated signs: Max reading distance = 100 x H 00 <2 xH H Glamox E80 is designed for a maximum reading distance of 30m Escape route lighting Corridors and intersections of corridors In a building it is important to have emergency lighting that clearly illuminates the escape routes and where there are changes in direction. This allows users to clearly identify their means of escape and should highlight the escape route signs. Emergency lighting in corridors allows users to clearly identify escape routes. Possible solution X X/2 E85 C: X = 17m Suitable products We offer a range of products that are ideal for covering changes in corridors, junctions and changes in directions. Please check details on E80, E85 C. E80 E85 C X = 17m 10 Escape route lighting Changes in floor levels Uneven flooring on escape routes needs to be illuminated so that in emergency users can act accordingly. In areas where flooring may become uneven on an escape route, a lighting unit should be fitted, so that it does not prove a danger to users. Uneven flooring can consist of single steps, ramps, sloping floors etc. Uneven flooring on escape routes need to be illuminated so it’s not a danger to users.

E85 C X = 17m 11 Escape route lighting Windowless rooms All areas of a building need to be covered in case of evacuation, including toilet accommodation and other windowless rooms. When an evacuation is needed and users must make their way out of the building safely, it is necessary that all escape routes are visible. Small rooms are no exception to this rule, they need to be well lit so that users can find their way to safety. Small rooms also need to be covered with emergency lighting. Suitable products We offer a range of products that are ideal for windowless and small rooms. Please check details on E80, E85 WB, GEF.

MIR/MAX GEF for integrated solution when IP rating is required 15 Anti-panic lighting An anti-panic area is defined as an area bigger than 60 m² where a large number of persons are gathered. The illumination of this area should provide sufficient emergency lighting, not to raise panic and enable persons to arrive at a place where the escape route can be identified. For anti-panic areas the horizontal illumination on the floor should not be less than 0.5 lux, and the ratio between maximum and minimum illumination level should not exceed 40:1. An anti-panic area is an area bigger than 60m2 where a large number of people are gathered Suitable products We offer a range of products that are ideal for covering large open areas. Please check details on E85 WB, GEF, integrated solutions. 16 E85 WB GEF C20 when IP rating is required for integrated solution Standards for emergency light Specifying emergency light can very often be like stumbling through a minefield of different National and European standards. The installation of emergency luminaires and fire exit signs in premises must meet several legislations and also be agreeable with the business owner. The current requirements of legislation must then be met: National / European standards EN 1838:2012 / IS3217 Emergency light includes light technical conditions like reading distance, uniformity and level of light. EN 50171:2001 Central power supply systems Central power supply systems is a system standard that includes design, operation and maintenance of a central based emergency power supply. This is then referring to product standards for UPS and emergency luminaires. EN 50172:2004 / IS3217 Emergency light systems System standard for emergency light. This is a system standard that includes design, operation and maintenance of an emergency light system. This is then referring to product standards for Emergency luminaires and stationary batteries. EN 60598-2-22:1999 (Emergency luminaires) + EN 50091-1-1 (UPS) Product standards for emergency luminaires and Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPS). The Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 state that final exits and locations where the escape route may be unclear must have signs installed to reduce uncertainty Local Authorities and Fire Prevention Officers will have preferences as to the requirements of signage and lighting, so seeking their views is always advisable 18 Servicing and testing To test an emergency lighting system you need to simulate a mains power failure on the normal lighting circuit or circuits of individual luminaires. This will force the emergency lighting system to operate and use the battery supply. This can be done manually or automatically. 20 MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS FOR EMERGENCY LUMINAIRES Responsibility and control, emergency equipment • The batteries are described as consumables and are not covered by our 5 year warranty. • The battery should be replaced with same item number. The item number is found on the label of the old battery. If this is unreadable you must use the entire luminaire description. The item number of the new battery shall be part of the operation and maintenance documentation. Emergency lighting has an important function in any building. The operational and maintenance costs of emergency equipment are high. The investment costs often account for 5-10% of the total costs for emergency lighting equipment. • It is not necessary to disconnect the mains supply prior to changing the battery. It is recommended to disconnect the mains supply to self-test variants, as this will reset the test c ycle and a battery discharge test will be done 48 hours after b attery change. • For emergency lighting that use fluorescent or compact fluorescent lamps as light sources in both emergency and in normal lighting operation, the emergency lighting will wear extra on the lamp. We therefore recommend, for safety reasons, to make group replacement of these lamps twice as frequent as for the rest of the lighting system. If there are light sources that don’t light up during the emergency operation, it must be replaced immediately. • Emergency luminaires must be tested and the results / actions must be logged and kept in accordance with the national building regulations. These refer to EN 50172, which states: 1. Functional test at least once per month. 2. Full Capacity test at least once a year. For safety reasons we recommend to fully discharge the battery every 3 month as a test to see if it’s still functional. 3. The following should be recorded: a. Date of commissioning of the system b. Date of tests c. Date and comments to service of the facility d. Date of errors that occur at the facility and what actions must be implemented e. The date when the measures are implemented and test status measured • Self Tests are tested according to EN 50172. If errors occur, the bipolar diode or a set of LEDs will indicate what type of error it is. The light patterns of the various errors are found in the user manual, which is a part of the operation and maintenance documentation. When analysing operational and maintenance costs, the following should be taken into account: • • • • • • The equipment’s energy requirements Monthly testing and control of the fittings and light sources Annual testing and control of emergency power sources Materials and parts Work connected to maintenance Operational and maintenance documentation. Log keeping. Alternative solutions Integrated emergency lighting Integrated LED emergency lighting Designation: E1/(1 hour lighting time) or E3/(3 hours lighting time) Standard light luminaires where one of the light tubes also provides light in emergency operation. The solution has battery, diode and emergency lighting electronics built into the luminaire housing. Supplied as combined maintained M/non-maintained NM. Luminaire designation = E1L/ or E3L/ Standard luminaire with its own integrated LED light source for emergency use. The solution has battery, diode and emergency lighting electronics built into the luminaire body. The light source is dedicated to emergency lighting. Supplied as nonmaintained NM. Often emergency lighting is looked at as a necessary evil when it comes to aesthetics. Glamox can today offer a complete range of route light and anti-panic light with LED based design that can be integrated into most of our commercial luminaires. To integrate emergency light into the general lighting is often the only way to meet the aesthetic demands in a modern building. The advantages of using the LED technology for route light and anti-panic light is that a dedicated light source for emergency gives a higher degree of safety and additionally you require less battery capacity and therefore lower battery cost. Glamox can also offer the more standard integrated emergency version when the room requires more light (example large ceiling heights). All our solutions can be offered in a Standard (S), Self Test (ST) and an addressable (DALI) version based on DALI protocol. Our aim is to offer a complete solution where low maintenance cost and high safety is the main objective. By using quick connectors between the battery and electronics and the LED and electronics the time spent on both mounting and maintenance is lowered to a minimum. Our reflector technology on LED gives a coverage area of up to 44 m² according to antipanic light regulations. 22 Stand-Alone Designation = E1/, E3/ or Z (centralised) The luminaire is dedicated to emergency lighting. Comes as both sign or escape route lighting. Some versions supplied as combination (with applied sign). The combined solution is also supplied as combined maintained M/Non-maintained NM. Escape route light supplied as NonMaintained (NM) and sign lights supplied as Maintained (M). Stand-Alone solution available for various types of light source. System solutions Manual test (S) In this case the power supply is manually cut to emergency light luminaires. During monthly function tests, the length of the test is a maximum of 25% of the expected lighting time. During annual tests the equipment should undergo a full discharge test to check battery capacity. Test status is found by visual checking of the charge diode and the light source at the same time that testing takes place. Tests and repairs should be logged with their status. Self-test (ST) Emergency light luminaires take control of the tests themselves and carry these out at the necessary times and intervals as dictated by regulations. Test status is found with a visual check of one or more two-coloured diodes in the luminaire. Visual control should take place on a monthly basis. Tests and repairs should be logged with their status. Addressable (DALI) DALI is an addressable, standardised control protocol designed for lighting. DALI has now also been extended to manage emergency lighting. In addressable emergency equipment the tests are programmed from a central unit. Test status are automatically logged in the central unit. Today, there are various types of software and control modules which manage DALI emergency lighting protocols. DALI Emergency lighting can be connected to other DALI controls in accordance with certain regulations. Glamox recommend DALI because it is an open standardised system and will be here today and tomorrow… 23 Product overview E80-S body material and colour connection emergency system E80-S is a surface mounted exit sign based on LED.
