...the 'Designing an Emergency Lighting System' series is still a valuable resource for anyone in the fire industry...

Discount Fire Supplies has regularly posted industry advice and news on their popular fire alarm blog since 2010. The topics covered have included everything from choosing the best fire alarm system to talking to children about fire safety. In November 2011 they started publishing an eight-part series on emergency lighting entitled 'Designing an Emergency Lighting System'.

The series of blog posts featured a different aspect of emergency lighting in each part and aimed to provide handy tips and information to anyone looking to install an emergency lighting system on their premises. Areas covered included the legislation governing emergency lighting as well as where emergency lights should be installed and how often they should be tested.

A year on from writing and publishing the blog series, Discount Fire Supplies wanted to know if their advice still holds true today and if the industry itself has changed at all in the last 12 months.

From their investigations, they discovered that, while a revised British Standard (5266-1:2011) had been introduced, the fundamental factors that dictate how and where emergency lighting should be installed have not changed. Therefore, they believe that their 'Designing an Emergency Lighting System' series is still a valuable resource for anyone in the fire industry, especially newcomers to the field.
