Testing Requirements For Emergency / Exit Lighting

Emergency lights provide lighting in corridors, stairwells, ramps, aisles, and exit passageways in the event of a power outage. If your emergency lights fail to operate properly during an emergency situation, the building occupants can become disoriented and fail to evacuate promptly.

Routine maintenance and testing of emergency lighting, which is required by NFPA Standard No. 101, Chapter 7, Section 7.9, is very often overlooked until the lights are needed, in an emergency.

An annual test, per NFPA, shall be conducted for 90 minutes. Equipment shall be fully operational for the duration of the test. Written records of visual inspections and tests must be kept by the owner for inspection by the authority having jurisdiction.

Our technicians will perform the required testing and maintenance on your emergency lights and provide you with the written records as required by NFPA, and shall include the following procedures:

  1. 90 Minute full function test
  2. Disconnect AC power supply to each emergency light
  3. Check battery and lens for sulfation
  4. Clean each emergency light and lens as required
  5. Adjust beam for proper alignment
  6. Place testing label on the emergency light and record in testing log
  7. Check and adjust charging system voltage
  8. Check battery output voltage
  9. Check line voltage to remote fixtures

If we are already in your building inspecting any of your other systems, we will discount this valuable added service! Our phone number? 207-775-5755
