emergency_light_thumbEmergency and exit path lighting are required in all commercial buildings. Think about it, power failures occur often. It could be from lightning, downed power lines, or just an interruption in service. Your employees and customers need to safely move around your buildings at the time of power failure. The need for these devices is essential. If there were a fire and swift escape was crucial, the combination of smoke and power failure would make visibility nearly impossible without proper emergency lighting. In your plan of protecting life and property at the time of an emergency, lighting is a critical component. The fire code requires that your illumination work for a minimum of 90 minutes when called to do so. Documents indicating that this test has been completed are required along with a monthly quick check of your units. At Tri State, the majority of our customers perform this quick check themselves and have us perform the 90 minute test and deliver the proper documentation that will help ensure you that your lighting will work when you need it most.

Our Technicians Will:

  • Inspect the lighting system to determine whether it is in service and in satisfactory condition in accordance with NFPA standards.
  • Conduct a complete test of the lighting system to ensure it will illuminate a minimum of 90 minutes (OSHA, NFPA and NEC minimum standards).
  • Adjust the PC board float voltage. This will ensure extended life of the batteries and other key components.
  • Inspect all bulbs and lamp heads to ensure they are operational and meet lighting requirements.
  • Clean all battery terminals and leads.
  • Survey the emergency lights and exit signs for proper placement.
  • Check the energy efficiency of the bulbs and lamps.
  • Tag or label devices as required and perform all required record keeping.
  • Identify potential detrimental site conditions that could compromise the performance of mechanical and/or electronic components of the system.
  • Compile a complete report of the inspection, explaining any deficiencies and recommending corrective action to be taken in accordance with recognized codes for care and maintenance.
