Hundreds of millions of customers visit shopping centres every year. From small boutiques to massive out-of-town shopping centres, landowners, property managers, and business owners are responsible for emergency evacuation plans.
The loss of mains electricity could be the result of a fire or a power cut. In the retail environment without suitable emergency lighting, this could lead to sudden darkness and possible danger to occupants, either through physical danger or sheer panic of the crowd.
With retail facilities open for longer into the night, emergency lighting is an important focus for lighting strategies. The role is to guide and locate a meeting point, but also to highlight safety equipment, changes in direction, stairs and outside the building. Additionally, all too often, retail stores have a brand image that is conveyed through each touchpoint, including the lighting. So, as well as delivering customers and staff to safety, emergency lighting needs to look the part. Likewise, owners are under increasing pressure to meet net-zero targets, we work with designers to produce stunning emergency lights using our latest innovative technology to provide sustainable, reliable, attractive life safety solutions.
