Emergency Lighting Testing

We deliver emergency lighting testing and regular testing for fire
alarm systems, ensuring your team’s safety.

Emergency lighting testing explained

When a problem occurs and it goes dark, stress can ensue. It is essential to provide everything possible to protect your people and get them out of your building safely. Emergency lighting testing means you’re prepared for any eventuality, and your lighting can be relied on when you need it most.

For most businesses, we offer an annual duration test to check that everything is working correctly and you’re protected. We will also assess the quality and suitability of your installation, survey your systems and consider how your emergency lighting could be better or more effectively used to offer maximum protection for your people.

Why it’s important

Emergency lighting isn’t always something that businesses will consider as important. But, without being able to safely evacuate a building, you’re putting your people at risk. It’s vital that these systems are installed, working and effectively utilised.

Pattco offers an on-site test of your emergency lighting systems and ensures you’ll benefit from a minimum of 3 hours of backup light if the power goes out in an emergency.

At the end of our testing, you’ll receive a certificate that showcases the safety of your buildings, but also provides observations and recommendations for changes, should they be required.

Fire alarm testing

During this process, we can also provide fire alarm testing for commercial properties. It’s common to find poorly maintained fire alarm systems in commercial buildings, but a damaged or broken system can severely impact the safety of your building.

Our team of experienced professionals undertake tests to check your system detects and sounds as expected, but also ensures the most effective placement of your fire alarm systems across your site.
