One of the major hazards associated with commercial premises is the outbreak of fire.
Often, a fire on a business premises is caused by a spark in an electrical connection, triggered by partial contact, resulting in a spark or an increase in the temperature of surrounding metal that later ignites a nearby flammable material.
While such occurrences can be difficult to totally avoid, the right safety measures in place can save lives. Along with smoke alarms, emergency lighting should be introduced into your business premises, usually at the time of building, to light exit pathways so that your staff and clients can easily follow an escape route in case of fire.
An effective emergency is an essential service in any commercial or apartment buildings, and the lighting system requires proper planning prior to installation and regular six monthly checks by a qualified electrician to avoid any failures when the system is most needed.
Our team at Mossfiel Electrical can help you with proper planning, which entails an overview of the business premises and working area to locate the appropriate points at which to fix the emergency lights and to ensure a continuous source of power in case of a local outage.
