Emergency Monitoring Systems
Looking for emergency monitoring systems?
If you are looking to monitor your self-contained and centrally supplied emergency lighting systems, we can provide emergency monitoring systems for your business. Kerfoot has the expertise to offer comprehensive emergency monitoring services, from design and installation to management.
Emergency Lighting Standard Requirements
In the interest of public safety, emergency lighting systems are governed by the law. In Australia, a set of standards covers the application and maintenance of emergency lighting in commercial buildings. These standards are AS/NZS 2293 Parts 1, 2 and 3.
Under these standards, emergency and exit lighting must be inspected, tested and maintained in accordance with the procedures outlined. All emergency and exit lights must undergo a 90-minute discharge test of the battery every 6 months as stated under the AS2293.2 Standard. Failure to comply could not just result in a penalty, but also jeopardise the safety of the building occupants.
Complying with the standards the manual way can be laborious and costly, particularly in larger premises. You could end up spending hours manually inspecting, testing and monitoring each unit. However, an emergency monitoring solution could overcome this challenge and make the process more efficient and cost-effective.
Why Are Emergency Monitoring Systems Important?
With emergency monitoring systems, you will no longer need to do manual tests and visual inspections. You can now automate function and duration tests in accordance with the AS2293 Standard. The systems also track the performance of every fitting.
The monitoring system will not disrupt the power supply or interfere with the operation of your emergency lighting system when it is monitoring. Emergency lighting will remain operational throughout the test.
At Kerfoot, we offer real time emergency monitoring software that provides business owners and facility managers control over emergency lighting monitoring and maintenance. Not only is automated monitoring more efficient and cost-effective, it also provides a more comprehensive insight and is not susceptible to human error.
