How is Emergency Lighting Testing carried out?

This is a test that certifies all the Exit & Emergency lights are in good working order and that the batteries sustain their charge for 90 minutes during a power blackout or building fire.

Six Monthly Tests

  • Visual checks of all Emergency and Exit lights for mains operation.
  • Check for operation of maintained exit lights and replace faulty lamps prior to testing where required.
  • Isolate power to all exit and emergency lights, in most cases either by utilising the test switch or turning off the circuit breaker that supplies power to the fittings
  • To meet the Australian Standards AS2293 / BCA requirements, a discharge test will last for a duration of 90 minutes.
  • After tests have been completed the tester must restore the system to normal operation.
  • Those units which have failed the discharge test must be either repaired and restored to normal condition or replaced.
  • Lamp replacement of any defective lamps shall be replaced. All lamps should be replaced on a yearly or after 10,000 of operation.

Twelve Monthly Procedures

  • Carry out all checks as per six-monthly procedures.
  • Clean and Inspect fittings and clean reflective surfaces as necessary on all emergency and exit lighting diffusers as required
  • Visual checks to ensure that the emergency lighting system operates in correct relationship to the normal lighting in any designated area.
