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.
