BS 5266-1 Emergency lighting design procedure.

The BS 5266 standard specifies all necessary stages for carrying out emergency lighting design. Consultation should be carried out following the Risk Assessment to verify escape routes and establish:

  • Positions of fire alarm call points

  • Position of fire-fighting equipment

  • Positions of escape route signs and other safety signs

  • Requirements for emergency escape lighting

  • Positions of lifts

  • Positions of moving stairways and walkways

  • Position of covered car parks

  • Areas that require standby lighting

  • Areas for the location of central power supply units

  • High risk areas and locations that require emergency lighting

  • Areas that require emergency safety lighting

Having established the positions and areas which need to be illuminated by emergency lighting, the detail lighting design should commence.
