Design Stage 1
Design Stage 1: Initial Considerations – current statutory requirements and
product standards
The design specification, selection and installation of emergency lighting is covered by an extensive range of legislation which are under continual
review, being amended, in response to Directives and Standards issued by the relevant statutory bodies of the European Union. The first stage
of system design is to gather all information for the project through reference to local authorities for current legislative Standards and Directives,
and must pay due regard to users/customers preferences.

Design Stage 2
Design Stage 2: Compulsory lighting locations – Points of Emphasis
The positioning and selection of emergency lighting equipment is subject to the nature of the area to be protected, and should be identified
during risk assessment. This should cover specific hazards and highlight safety equipment and signs. This section provides outline guidance on
each of the defined areas that require protection.
Areas initially requiring cover for designing a scheme are (these are mandatory):

A Each flight of stairs B Change in direction along the C Exit doors


escape route

D Safety signs E Each final exit point (internally F Fire alarm call points
and externally)

G Each intersection H Change of floor level I Fire fighting equipment / first


aid points

Additional emergency lighting should be provided at the following:


A Lift cars
B Toilet facilities and other tiled areas which exceed 8m2 floor area and toilet facilities for the disabled
C Escalators
D Motor generator, control or plant rooms
E Covered car parks along pedestrian routes
F External escape routes

Design Stage 3: Exit signage
These are required at all exits, emergency exits and along escape routes. A directional sign is required when sight of an emergency exit sign is not
possible or doubt may exist. BS 5266 and EN 1838 state that all the emergency escape route signs and luminaires, which should be of the same
design format, should be placed in all areas.

Design Stage 4
Design Stage 4: Escape routes
After all mandatory Luminaires and Exit signs have been positioned, it may be necessary to provide additional luminaires so that a minimum light
level is reached along the escape route. The luminaires on an escape route of up to 2m wide should be positioned centrally. The illuminance is
specified along the centre line with 50% of that illuminance over the 1 metre wide central band. Wider routes are treated as Open Areas or as
multiple routes.

1 lux minimum
on centre line
of escape route

1 lux to wall

Transverse
spacing to wall

Transverse spacing
between luminaires

1 lux minimum between luminaires


(0.5 lux being provided by each luminaire)

In terms of illumination, EN 1838 calls for a minimum of 1.0 Lux anywhere along the centre line of the escape route. The UK has a National
Exception which accepts 0.2 Lux along the centre line as long as the escape route is permanently unobstructed with points of emphasis to 1 Lux.
Spacing table provide assistance in these calculations.
BS 5266 recommends using a larger number of low power luminaires rather than a few high power units. In this way it ensures no part of the
escape route is lit by just one luminaire.
Reference to the Photometric Data will provide you with the information needed to determine the number of additional fittings that are required,
with the existing luminaires provided to illuminate points of emphasis.

Design Stage 5
Design Stage 5: Anti panic or open areas
Areas that are not escape routes or high risk, but still within the general requirements of current legislation, are known as open areas.
The European Standard EN 1838 calls for a minimum of 0.5 Lux measured at floor level anywhere within the area excluding shadowing effects
of room contents. The core area also excludes a 0.5m perimeter.
Spacing Data for Anti Panic or Open Areas
The number of luminaires required can be calculated using the following equation:
Calculation Example
Room measures 12 metres wide by 15 metres in length.
8 watt self-contained luminaires, with an ELDL of 130 lumens are to be mounted at 3 metres from the floor. The Service factor is 0.8, the K Factor
is 0.65 and UFO is 0.47.

Core area
Number of Luminaires required = 1 x 12 x 15 (excludes 0.5m border)

0.47 x 0.8 x 130 x 0.65

= 180 = 5.7 (rounded up to 6) luminaires


31.7

The example is calculated by using the following equation:


N = E x room width x room length Transverse
spacing
UFO x SF x ELDL x K Axial spacing to wall
between luminaires
Transverse spacing
N number of luminaires Axial spacing between luminaires
to wall
E is the average illuminance required (i.e. 1 lux)
UFO is the Utilisation Factor for an appropriate room index at zero reflectance

The UFO can be obtained by first calculating the Room Index (RI) by using the following equation:
RI = Length of room (L) x width of room (W)
Mounting height of luminaire x (L + W

Once the RI has been calculated, refer to the UFO table within the Photometric Data
SF is the Service Factor, which takes account of cable voltage drop, lamp replacement period, component ageing and dust accumulation.
For most purposes, a Service factor of 0.8 is valid for self contained and mains luminaires, and 0.75 for DC central battery luminaires.
ELDL is the Design Lumen Output of the luminaire at its nominal operating voltage.
K is a factor which relates to the reduction in light output at the end of discharge, or 5 seconds after mains failure, whichever is the
lowest.

K factors vary with circuit types as follows:

model self contained units dc central systems ac central systems

type NM/s m

Luminaires fluorescent 0.65 0.55 0.70 1.00

Luminaires tungsten 0.55 0.55 0.55 1.00

Conversion units 0.70 0.70 0.75 N/A

Design Stage 6

Design Stage 6: High risk task areas


The European Standard EN 1838 requires that higher levels of emergency lighting are provided in areas that are considered to present danger to
a building’s occupants, in the event of a mains lighting failure, to be adequately illuminated.
Adequate illumination is defined as at least 10% of the normal lighting, with a minimum level of 15 lux and continues for as long as the hazard
exists. The average horizontal illuminance on the reference plane (not necessarily the floor) should be as high as the risk demands.

SUMMARY OF ILLUMINANCE REQUIREMENTS

en 1838 BS 5266: Pt 1: 1988 (Superseded)

0.2 Lux minimum


Escape routes 1 Lux minimum
Routes with obstruction or used by elderly people require higher levels of lighting

Open areas 0.5 Lux minimum in core area 1 Lux average over total area

Additional areas 0.5 Lux minimum Not specified

High risk task areas 10% of normal illuminance Not specified

Design Stage 7
Design Stage 7: Which type – self-contained or centrally supplied luminaires?
Essentially there are two basic systems to select from.

Self-contained luminaires
The first is a system that utilises luminaires with their own battery, charger and changeover circuits. They also include conversion kits that can be
used to enhance mains fluorescent luminaires, enabling them to provide illumination in the event of a normal supply failure.

Benefits Drawbacks
l Easy and quick to install l Batteries have a limited working
l Minimal wiring costs life, and are susceptible to high
ambient temperatures
l Reliable
l Relatively expensive for larger
l Ideal for smaller installations
installations
l Safe: if one luminaire fails, the
rest will still operate
l Site expansion easily catered for
l Widely available off-the-shelf

Centrally-Supplied Systems
The second type of system is one that is linked to a remote back-up power supply, which provides energy in the event of a normal supply failure.
Of these, there are two basic types.

DC Battery Systems
These comprise of a battery, charging circuit and control circuit to provide DC power when needed.

Benefits Drawbacks
l Low running cost l Requires separate fire resistant
l Extended system life distribution wiring
l Easy to test and maintain
l Relatively low luminaire cost
l Luminaires able to operate at
high ambient temperatures

AC Battery systems
These are central battery systems fitted with an inverter, to provide AC power in the event of a normal supply failure. Control circuitry is also
incorporated to ensure a stabilised power output.

Benefits Drawbacks
l Low running cost l Requires separate fire resistant
l Extended system life distribution wiring
l Easy to test and maintain
l Relatively low luminaire cost
l Luminaires able to operate at
high ambient temperatures
l Able to utilise existing mains
luminaires
l Potential for producing higher
light output

Design Stage 8
Design Stage 8: Maintenance and testing
The tasks of regular maintenance and testing are vital to make sure that a systems integrity and capacity to fulfil its task are maintained at all
times. Essential servicing should be well defined to ensure that the scheme remains fully operational. Consumable items such as lamps & batteries
should be available for immediate use.
BS 5266 recommends a test procedure, elements of which will become mandatory once new draft European directives become law.
All periodical testing as defined in BS 5266 should wherever possible be undertaken at times of minimum risk. All tests, results and corrective
actions should be recorded in the site log book.
