The Electrician's Guide to Emergency Lighting, 2nd Edition has been updated to take into account changes to the Code of Practice for the Emergency Escape Lighting of Premises in BS 5266:2011.
The Code of Practice has undergone extensive changes to assist those engineers wishing to protect occupants from the hazards identified by risk assessments and also to evaluate existing premises to decide if they need to be upgraded to meet current requirements. The standard has also been expanded to give guidance to protect occupants from a sudden loss of the normal lighting supply.
This guide is one of a number of publications prepared by the IET to provide guidance on specific areas of electrical installations in buildings. It takes into account the relevant parts of BS 7671 and BS 5266.
This guide is essential for all electricians, electrical contractors and their managers, installation designers, and students in further education and professional training.
