Emergency Lighting

We can design, install, maintain and test emergency lighting. Whether it’s for a landlords HMO or within a commercial or industrial setting we can provide professional emergency lighting.

What is emergency lighting?

Lighting that automatically comes on when the power supply to the normal lighting provision fails.

Emergency escape lighting is the part of an emergency lighting system that provides illumination for the safety of people leaving a location or attempting to terminate a potentially dangerous process beforehand. It is part of the fire safety provision of a building and a requirement of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

A minimum duration of 3 hours should be used for emergency escape lighting if the premises are not evacuated immediately. For example, in the case of sleeping accommodation. If the premises will be reoccupied immediately the supply is restored without waiting for the batteries to be recharged.

Dane Palmer is an electrician with over 15 years' experience offering services to Cheltenham, Gloucester and the surrounding areas.


We are fully committed being trained and up to date with the latest Regulations and Standards.


D Palmer Electrical Limited is an NICEIC Approved Contractor so you can be rest assured all works are certified and Part P Notified.


We take pride in providing a high quality, professional service to all of our customers.

Routine testing should be carried out to ensure the lights and battery are correctly operating:

  • Monthly – short functional test carried out to ensure the light operates correctly. This test will minimise damage to the components (e.g. lamps / battery).
  • Annually – The annual test should be a full rated duration test to ensure that the emergency lights are still working. Also that the lights are producing the acceptable level of light at the end of the test. For example if a luminaire is rated for a 3 hour duration then the light should still be lit after 3 hours.

It is worth noting that the full duration test will be completed at a time of low risk of an emergency situation. This is so that the batteries have sufficient time to recharge.

Results will be recorded in an Emergency lighting log book. Any defects to the lights will be rectified as soon as possible.

Customer Testimonials

EICR + Remedial Works for Landlord. (Tenant)

Hello, just wanted to let you know the engineer was fab yesterday. He gave me a little lesson in electrics and it was also very interesting! He also showed me how to do the circuit board if we trip anything which a lot of engineers don't bother to do. He was very professional and respectful. People are always quick to complain, but I think its nicer to send good feedback when its deserved !
