Fire Exit & Emergency Lighting

Exit emergency lighting is crucial in case of a power outage. Even if it happens during the daytime, most buildings are still dark inside. It poses for a lot of dangers to your staff and emergency response teams. Exit lights and emergency lighting equipment are designed to provide illumination and a safe environment during fire and power outages for a minimum of 30 minutes.

With FireShield, you are assured that we have the technical know-how and track record when it comes to installation, inspection, repair and maintenance of exit emergency lighting. Our services are available to any business in Toronto and Greater Toronto Area.

Exit Emergency Lighting Installation

Before installation, we take into consideration the best emergency lighting design for your building as recommended by the engineer or the architect. It involves deciding on the lighting options and lighting levels that is suited for your needs and following Ontario’s fire safety code requirements.

We will install the system in new and existing properties along with integrating into your building’s entire fire and life safety system. We also ensure that your emergency lighting system performs properly and that the power supply in place is sufficient.

The primary codes used to determine proper application of emergency lighting systems in Ontario include the following:

  • International Building Code (IBC)
  • NFPA 101: Life Safety Code
  • NFPA 70: National Electrical Code
  • NFPA 110: Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems
  • NFPA 111: Standard on Stored Electrical Energy Emergency and Standby Power Systems
  • NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code

Determining which year a specific code or standard has been adopted by the jurisdiction where the given building project is located is critical prior to proceeding with emergency lighting design, as not all municipalities in Ontario enforce the most recent fire codes or standards.

Exit Emergency Lighting Inspection

Provincial fire codes, building codes, and Toronto fire marshals have established standards and expect you to keep your equipment in a full functional state. One of the first things a fire protection officer will check is whether or not your annual inspections and monthly tests are completed.

FireShield provides testing and troubleshooting on all of your exit and emergency lighting units to ensure that it is fully operational during an emergency. We conduct testing by simulating a power failure by turning off the power main. When the main power is out, the emergency lights should turn on as they are battery operated. Upon completion we provide a document that outlines the performance of your system and a report that you can show fire marshalls.

Exit Emergency Lighting Repair & Maintenance

In case of damage and wear, part of our servicing is to provide replacement batteries and bulbs, and chargers and fuses as needed to keep your emergency lighting units functioning properly when you need them.
