Emergency lighting is a lighting fixture with a battery pack that turns on automatically when a building experiences a power failure. It includes emergency escape lighting, illuminated emergency exit signage, high-risk task area lighting and standby lighting.

In Australia, emergency lighting is required to be tested every 6 months as per set out in the Australian Standard AS2293.
Emergency lights need to stay on for a minimum of 90 minutes after the main power supply has been cut as per set out in the Australian Standards AS2293.
Maintained Emergency Lighting
Maintained emergency lighting is made to provide illumination throughout the day and during the event of a power failure to achieve your emergency lighting and day-to-day lighting requirements.
Non-Maintained Emergency Lighting
Non-Maintained Emergency Lighting is made to only illuminate during the event of a power failure to provide safe passage during an emergency.
We believe LED is the only way to go!
That’s why WBS only manufactures LED lighting products. LED lighting provides higher levels of illumination with lower power consumption and superior product longevity. While fluorescent products are cheaper per unit, LED products will save you money in the long run with substantial reductions on your power bill and decreasing environmental impact.
According to The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 it is a Necessity to Install Emergency Lighting.*
The Law States : ‘Emergency routes and exits requiring illumination must be provided with emergency lighting of adequate intensity in the case of failure of their normal lighting’. WBS provides Full Installation and Testing of the Emergency lights. Our EMIoT Technology automatically detects Faulty lights and informs our team. The team assigns an Electrician to repair the product within 48 hours, keeping your Building Compliant With AFSS (Annual Fire Safety Statement) at all times.
