Stanilite Emergency Lighting: Enhancing Safety and Aesthetics in Commercial and Industrial Spaces

Published: 26 July 2023

Reliable emergency lighting is not just an add-on – it provides an essential lifeline during a crisis. That’s where the Stanilite Emergency Lighting Range steps up, leveraging the experience and capability of leading power and automation technology company, ABB.

Emergency lighting needs to provide illumination throughout all escape routes. In fact, any area of a commercial building that is occupied needs emergency lighting that indicates changes in surface height e.g. staircases and steps, fire and first-aid points, changes in direction, exit routes and more.

In Commercial and Industrial buildings these areas should include:

  • Each exit door.
  • Escape routes.
  • Intersection of corridors.
  • Outside each final exit and on external escape routes.
  • Emergency escape signs.
  • Stairways so that each flight receives adequate light.
  • Changes in floor level.

Emergency lighting is a lifeline in hazardous situations created by this complicated backdrop. Crucially, it enables the safe, prompt and efficient evacuation of spaces and buildings, not only in cases of blackout caused by power outages but when sunlight and mains lighting may still be available, but inadequate.
