    The main function of emergency lighting is to safely proceed to the nearest emergency exit. These safety devices are an essential element of an emergency plan since they supply emergency lighting and allow people to move safely toward an exit.

    • Electric circuit which normally charge the batteries and switch on lightbulbs in the event of power outage

    • Batteries which supply up to 30 minutes of power to the lightbulbs
    • Housing which contains all batteries, circuits and lightbulbs

Indeed, we have less than 3 minutes to safely evacuate a burning house which is why it shouldn’t be a necessity to insist upon the importance of a smoke detector.
