LED lights are up to 80% more efficient than traditional lighting such as fluorescent and incandescent lights. 95% of the energy in LEDs is converted into light and only 5% is wasted as heat. Less energy use reduces the demand from power plants and decreases greenhouse gas emissions so not only is it better for you and your business, it’s also better for the environment.

Emergency lighting is lighting for an emergency situation when the main power supply is cut and any normal illumination fails. The loss of mains electricity could be the result of a fire or a power cut and the normal lighting supplies fail. This may lead to sudden darkness and a possible danger to the occupants, either through physical danger or panic.
Emergency lighting is normally required to operate fully automatically and give illumination of a sufficiently high level to enable all occupants to evacuate the premises safely. Most new buildings now have emergency lighting installed during construction; the design and type of equipment being specified by the architect in accordance with current Building Regulations and any local authority requirements.
The British Standard provides the emergency lighting designer with clear guidelines to work to. BS 5266-1 embraces residential hotels, clubs, hospitals, nursing homes, schools and colleges, licensed premises, offices, museums, shops, multi-storey dwellings, etc. Although this standard recommends the types and durations of emergency lighting systems relating to each category of premises, it should be remembered that the standards are the minimum safe standards for these types of building and that a higher standard may be required for a particular installation.
We can provide a detailed layout drawing of your premises with showing all numbered emergency lighting locations and all emergency test points.
Create and issue you with a detailed logbook listing all types of emergency fittings in your premises relating to the detailed drawing, and all test point locations, with easy to follow monthly test results beside each light fitting.

We will also repair or replace any fails so that your emergency lighting is always up to date for the safety of you and your employees. You will also have up to date paperwork for any audits you may have.
When it comes to Security Lighting for Crime Prevention, Strategy and Expertise Mean Everything.
In past years, many businesses and families would install big, bright, glare-creating globe lights, or randomly-placed flood lights to prevent criminals from sneaking up on them at night. Numerous studies have shown, however, that just over-lighting a backyard or side of a house does little to deter, and may actually help criminals find easier access to these places. The key to successful security lighting is strategically placing and aiming the flood lights or spot lights where they will startle and at least temporarily blind an intruder, while also alerting you, your neighbours and passers-by to their activity. Our electricians have been designing and installing security lighting setups for homes and businesses in the area for over 30 years, so we know how to evaluate where and how to install a successful crime prevention lighting scheme.
Flood Lights and Spot Lights: Some Things to Consider About Security Lighting
The main objective of security lighting is to suddenly flood a dark area with light that will cause an intruder to retreat and leave your home or business alone. We evaluate the darkest, most “intruder-prone” areas to determine where security lighting should be strategically placed, particularly around entrance and exit locations such as doors, windows, gates and sliding glass doors.
Intruders prefer dark hiding spots where they will not be noticed if you come out to check for them. These are typically located around shrubs and bushes around the sides and back of a home. Strategically-located, motion-sensing spot lights and flood lights can make these areas useless to criminals.
Motion sensors can be tricky because they cannot always tell the difference between a passing neighborhood cat, the wind blowing through a shrub, or an actual intruder. Fortunately, newer models of motion-sensing flood lights and spot lights are being developed with sensitivity settings that can get closer to making the light turn on only when a person passes by the sensor.
Many security lighting options also come with a manual override switch that enables the owner to switch off the motion sensor if the light keeps coming on for no apparent reason. It is important, however, to realize that sometimes criminals can use this to their advantage, so please call our team of professionals for advice on newer models, designs and strategic placement of flood lights or spot lights that can optimize your chances of outwitting intruders.
Of course, motion-sensing security lighting can also be a convenience for homeowners and their pets aside from just deterring intruders. These lights can also help when a pet has to make a night-time excursion, or when teenagers are coming home from a night out as well.
