What is maintained and non-maintained emergency lighting?

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.

Fluorescent vs LED Emergency Lights

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.
