Emergency Lighting

Emergency Lighting

Are you up to speed on emergency lighting?

Those responsible for emergency lighting installations need to comply with the latest legislation and best practice, keep energy and maintenance low and not least, ensure a building’s occupants are safe at all times. There’s also the responsibility to manage the risk assessments, testing, maintenance and all the associated documentation.

LuxLive can help. The exhibition has become the go-to place for all things related to emergency lighting. There’s a dedicated stream of tutorials and presentations, and you’ll also be able to compare all the latest kit from the biggest players such as Dextra, Hochiki, Thorlux.

We come to LuxLive because it’s the one big opportunity we have each year to really get to grips with what’s going on in the lighting industry.

      Understanding Emergency Luminaire Conversion

      Arena: Escape ZoneSpeaker: Peter Earle of Philips OEM Technology
      Peter Earle from Philips OEM Technology discusses the critical points relating to safety, reliability, testing, compliance and choice when considering a design for an emergency conversion of a regular indoor LED fitting.  This topic should be interesting to end users and building owners with responsibility for their building’s safety systems who aren’t lighting experts but have many systems to consider, specifiers who want to understand more about LED emergency conversions and also luminaire manufacturers who want to optimise their luminaire conversions.

      Functional safety and the benefits

      Arena: Escape ZoneSpeaker: Paul Turner of BSI
      Innovations in the emergency lighting sector continue to provide new solutions for emergency lighting systems. This includes dynamic lighting that can react in real time to evolving situations and light the way to clear exits. With these evolution’s come new risks and opportunities as the use of the system changes and a greater reliance is placed on the hardware and software of the system to operate as intended when needed most. This presentation explores changes in the technology and also how the concept of functional safety can be used to help provide and demonstrate reliability of products along with a case study of how this has already been used to help a company win a new contract in the Middle East.

      Testing testing

      Arena: Escape ZoneSpeaker: Andrew Gooding of Integral
      All emergency lighting systems need regular testing. Here we look at the range of solutions available from manual and simple stand-alone self-test, building and site-wide self-test systems with remote diagnostics and the range of protocols available from DALI to newer wireless solutions.
    • 13:40

      What is stay-put lighting?

      Arena: Escape ZoneSpeaker: Alan Daniels of P4
      Stay-put’ lighting is a new option within emergency lighting. The latest revisions to the Emergency Lighting Code of Practice (BS2566:1 2016) allows for a situation where building occupants can remain in the building during an electricity mains failure. Alan Daniels of P4 will look at the conditions that appertain to this new standard and what scheme designers and building users need to do to ensure that a ‘stay put’ scheme is compliant.

      Panel: What’s the future of emergency tech?

      Arena: Escape ZoneSpeaker: David Mudd of BSI, Peter Earle of Philips OEM Technology
      The advent of LED, IoT and new wiring protocols such as power over ethernet means emergency lighting is creating a race to keep up. In this debate, our panel looks at these changes and what the future holds for emergency lighting.

      Five ways you could be breaking the law

      Arena: Escape ZoneSpeaker: Alan Daniels of P4
      Alan Daniels of P4 outlines the key requirements to ensure your emergency lighting is compliant with current UK legislation. This session will also cover common mistakes that occur with emergency lighting and what has changed with the latest changes to the regulations.

      Panel: Emergency lighting summit 2017

      Arena: Escape ZoneSpeaker: Chris Auger of BAFE, David Mooney of Atkins, Graham McKay of BSI, Ian Watts of Hochiki
      Suppliers, specifiers, standards bodies and building owners urgently need to address a culture of complacency in the sector that has developed over recent decades. Risk assessments, a key tool of the standards, are not always conducted, even in major institutions and organisations, and those that are, are not always as thorough as they should be. Equally there is a lack of knowledge about emergency lighting requirements and standards. At this time of heightened concern about building safety, how to we tackle these issues? Our summit participants will gather to discuss the way forward. This is a must-attend event for all stakeholder

      Emergency lighting and LEDs: the opportunities and challenges

      Arena: Escape ZoneSpeaker: Chris Auger of BAFE
      What are the special issues with LED luminaires in an emergency lighting network? How do they differ from fluorescent? What are the advantages and what are the challenges?
    • 13:00

      Managing emergency lighting across large estates

      Arena: Escape ZoneSpeaker: Neil Foster of Couch Perry Wilkes
      How do you manage various emergency lighting systems across multiple buildings? Is there a way to manage the testing centrally?
    • 13:30

      Panel Discussion: beyond the regs

      Arena: Escape Zone
