Emergency | Exit Lighting

Emergency lights, exit signs, and panic doors are some of the most important safety devices in your business. While fire alarm systems communicate an emergency and fire sprinklers extinguish fires, exit and emergency lights are designed to guide you and your employees to safety in the event of an emergency. Emergency and exit path lighting are required in all commercial buildings and are specifically designed to save lives. In the event of a power failure or other service interruption, your employees will utilize the emergency and exit lights to get to safety.

Impact Fire offers life safety programs in accordance with NFPA Life Safety Code 101. The fire code requires that your illumination work for a minimum of 90 minutes when called to do so. Documents indicating that this test has been completed are required along with a monthly quick check of your units. At Impact Fire, the majority of our customers perform this quick check themselves and have us perform the 90 minute test and deliver the proper documentation that will help ensure you that your lighting will work when you need it most. We inspect and service the emergency exit lighting and panic alarm devices at each location independent of, or bundled with, our excellent annual fire extinguisher maintenance program.
