Safety Lighting Systems

Emergency Lighting

In department stores, subways, and at sporting events – when the lights go out, emergency lighting helps keep visitors calm. We help you plan, implement, get final approval, and maintain your safety and backup lighting systems. Recognized by building code agencies, our qualified experts help you select a suitable backup power source and identify the best solution for your rescue route indicator system. We also monitor your inspection deadlines and audit the effectiveness and operational reliability of your system according to the DIN EN 1838 norm.
