Description

This Standard sets out requirements for the design, installation and operation of electric emergency evacuation lighting systems for buildings. Object is to provide visual conditions which will alleviate panic and permit safe evacuation of the building's occupants should this be necessary in the event of failure of the electrical supply to the normal lighting.

It does not specify types of buildings nor particular locations which should be provided with emergency evacuation lighting. Different requirements are specified for application in Australia and New Zealand, particularly with respect to the spacing of emergency luminaires.

Scope

This Standard specifies requirements for the equipment used and practices adopted in the provision of electric emergency evacuation lighting for buildings. Requirements for emergency luminaires and exit signs are specified by reference to AS/NZS 2293.3. The objective of the Standard is to provide visual conditions which will alleviate panic and permit safe evacuation of the building occupants, should this be necassary, in the event of failure of the electric supply to the normal lighting.

The Standard does not specify the types of buildings or the particular areas of buildings which should be provided with emergency evacuation lighting. This will normally be a matter of determination in accordance with the relevant building regulations. (See the Building Code of Australia or New Zealand Building Code, as applicable.)

There are some differences in the requirements specified for application in Australia and those for applications in New Zealand. Such differences are identified in the appropriate place by a qualification such as 'In Australia' or 'In New Zealand', as applicable.
