Description

Acceptable Solution F6/AS1 provides a means of compliance with Building Code Clause F6 Visibility in Escape Routes. Building Code Clause F6 provides for safety features for escape routes during failure of the main lighting. It ensures specified features in escape routes must be made reasonably visible during failure of main lighting. It applies to buildings in specific risk groups and particular locations in buildings (such as areas where dangerous machinery is installed, or any part of an escape route designed for use at any time by more than 250 people). It ensures systems for visibility operate within given percentages of their design levels and within given timeframes.

Scope

This Acceptable Solution applies to situations where emergency lighting is used as the sole means of meeting the performance requirements of Clause F6. This Acceptable Solution does not apply to lighting that is essential to maintain safe working conditions.
