The ultimate code authority on your particular needs is, or course, your local fire & building code enforcement agency.

Best Practices Tip: Consider exceeding minimum safety standards when "good judgement" dictates that additional lighting and / or signage may be needed for safety and clarity.

There are many factors which need to be considered when selecting emergency lighting and signage. How important is upfront cost? What about energy-efficiency? Are there environmental issues such as extreme temperatures where the equipment will be installed? The answers to these questions and other frequently asked questions are collected here.

Best Practices Tip: Don't forget about factoring in installation, maintenance, and operating costs when evaluating the type of sign or light to install.


Planning for Life Safety

There are three main reasons that most businesses cite for purchasing and installing emergency egress lighting and signs:

1) To meet local fire and building code standards;

2) To meet other pertinent State and Federal standards;

3) To meet applicable insurance company requirements. There is really only one important reason that everyone should remember about installing and operating emergency lighting and exit signs:

The proper installation and maintenance of exit signs and emergency lighting saves lives 

The selection and installion of an exit sign or emergency light will not prevent the start of a fire, or mitigate it's outcome. It will have no effect on the amount of property damage that may be caused by that fire. However, it is vitally important that when evaluating the use and installation of exit signs, emergency lights, egress signs, and photoluminescent markings, the installer or architect recognizes that this equipment is present for the preservation of human life, not property.

You may have emergency and exit lights in all the right places, but that does little good in an emergency if those lights haven’t been properly maintained. Daytona Fire and Safety Equipment has a dedicated team of factory-trained technicians who ensure that your emergency and exit lights are properly placed and function correctly.

A Daytona Fire and Safety Equipment technician starts by surveying your facility to determine the age and placement of lights and then testing each light for functionality. The technician executes a quick check to test operation and then an operational test that reveals whether your lights are in order to provide 90 minutes of illumination during a power failure.

In short, you get our assurance that your facility is up to code and your employees and customers are safe.

Technicians are ready with whatever updates you might need from batteries and bulbs to LED conversion kits or new lights. Talk with a Daytona Fire and Safety Equipment associate today to work emergency and exit lighting testing into your fire protection package for greater value and coverage.
