Emergency Lights Installation, Testing and Maintenance
EnC Solutions have indepth experience and expertise from the consultation to installation to compliance to maintenance and repairs of all types of Emergency Lights. An emergency light will be connected to electrical wiring of a building or residence, so that it can sense when the power goes out. In the even of an outage,or the tripping of a breaker, the unit will signaled to come on and have minutes of backup power to illuminate the path to an exit.
Emergency lighting is required to illuminate building areas when things go wrong - for exmaple, when the normal electrical supply is interrupted by a utility outage or by a fire or failure within the building. In most facilities, the largest part of emergency illumination lights the pathways and exits that lead out of the building - the egrss paths. Its intent is to facilitate evacuation of the facility, particularly in the event of a fire, and to reduce the tendency of occupants to panic under stress, and in the dark.
