Emergency lighting automatically turns on when the power supply to standard lighting fails. Ensuring the presence of emergency lighting is vital for the safety of any building premises.

An emergency lighting system automatically provides illumination when the regular power supply fails, such as during a power cut or a fire, ensuring occupants can find the safest and quickest routes.
