EXIT AND EMERGENCY LIGHTING PLAY A CRUCIAL ROLE IN FIRE PROTECTION.
Every business, apartment building, a retail store needs reliable emergency lights and exit signs for safety in the situation of
a power outage or fire. Australia Fire Protection offers emergency lights and exit sign installation, maintenance and services. We provide testing, repairing and installation services for any residential, commercial, facility in Melbourne.
During the power outage or fire, the darkness and smoke can make it difficult to see for occupants where the exits are; That is why it’s important to make sure your business premise has a reliable exit and emergency lighting system, and it is regularly inspected.
According to the Australian Standards AS2293, exit signs and emergency lighting must stay illuminated for a minimum of 90 minutes. It also states that the emergency lighting system must be tested and discharged at the following period:
6 Monthly: a fire equipment expert must conduct a 90-minute power drop test
Annually: perform a 90-minute power drop test
By discharging the batteries every six months, you will extend the life of your emergency lighting system. There are mainly three types of emergency signs and lighting used for fire safety.
Sustained – It comes with two lamps within the light fitting and only one bulb works at either time.
Non-maintained – These are generally non-illuminated, are consistently on charge and only illuminate when the power goes off.
Maintained – A maintained emergency light comes with only one lamp which is illuminated both the time continuously power and when mains power fails.

We offer a comprehensive range of equipment servicing that are compliant with the Australian Standard and the Building Code of Australia.
