At K&M Electrical, we are knowledgeable of a wide range of makes and models of emergency lighting. We have a large number of clients for whom we’ve installed, tested, and continue to maintain their emergency lighting systems.

Emergency lighting has evolved alongside health and safety over the years. In modern buildings, the old simple, low-voltage, battery-backed units have made way for intelligent addressable systems such as KNX Emergency Systems and the totally automated, self-testing, remote-reporting Legrand Galaxy system. We have solutions across the cost and application spectrum, so get in touch to discuss what might suit you.

K&M Electrical has a team of experienced qualified electricians which are available 24/7 to service your Emergency Lighting equipment. We provide a ‘one stop shop’ to cater for a number of your building’s emergency services, and we’d be more than happy to sort out any other electrical repairs, maintenance or installations you may need at the same time.


Not Just an Exit Sign?

Emergency lighting fills the need for visual evacuation guidance in case of a power outage, fire, evacuation or emergency event. A well-designed, functional emergency lighting system is essential for the safety of people in your building. Aside from the familiar overhead ‘EXIT’ signs, flood lights, stairwell lighting and floor-level lighting are often incorporated as parts of effective emergency lighting systems.

There are two main considerations that make emergency lighting different from normal lighting:

  • Emergency lighting should operate for two hours without mains power, usually by way of battery back-up.
  • Emergency lighting is positioned in the building for pure safety functionality. The layout and specifications should be determined by a professional.

Your building’s electrical lighting design needs to comply with the NZ Building Code and AS/NZS 2293.1:2018.

Modern Solutions

With the technological advancements of the past decade has come a new breed of emergency lighting systems.

Both large-scale and small-scale emergency lighting installations can now be integrated with ‘smart’ building control systems thanks to the interoperability of the KNX system. K&M Electrical offer KNX control systems for your home, commercial or industrial buildings.

Perhaps the most advanced, standalone emergency lighting system is the Legrand Galaxy. The Galaxy is a totally automated system that offers live online reporting, self-testing, and is scalable to any size – from a single building to an entire airport complex.
