This new information is also important for emergency lighting engineers providing protection to ‘stay put’ installations.


Concentrating on the additional requirement for safety lighting which go beyond just providing illumination to escape a building in the event of a fire.


This concise update presented by the Key industry experts, also gives recommendations regarding the majority of users who will elect to remain in buildings during mains supply failures.
