Description

This Standard specifies the requirements for the design and installation of systems of emergency escape lighting and illuminated exit signage intended to illuminate upon failure of supply to the normal lighting. It includes requirements specific to central battery and single point/self contained arrangements.

Scope

The scope of this Standard does not include the following:

  • Constructional (including appearance) requirements for emergency escape luminaires and exit signs. These requirements can be found in AS 2293.3.
  • Requirements for maintaining an emergency escape lighting installation once installed. These requirements can be found in AS/NZS 2293.2.
  • Specification of the types of buildings or particular spaces that are required to be provided with emergency escape lighting. This is typically set out in the Building Code of Australia (BCA).
  • Requirements for emergency evacuation lighting of the interior of lift cars. These requirements can be found in AS 1735.
  • Requirements for high-risk task area lighting.
  • Requirements for standby lighting.

Due to the known detrimental effect of smoke on the visual conditions provided by emergency lighting, it is recommended that provision be made to keep escape paths as free from smoke as possible by means such as construction techniques and ventilation.
