These fittings are designed to be installed within a building to provide an attractive appearance in line with the general decor. Maintained and non-maintained units are available and are based upon conventional fluorescent tubes and 3-hour battery packs. The load is transferred to the battery supply seamlessly.
Weatherproof units offer substantial strength against most outside conditions. Construction is in the form of a high-grade aluminium alloy casting.
Maintenance and routing testing is easier, with only one location to consider The life of the battery is between 5 and 25 years, dependant on type Environmentally stable in a protected environment. The luminaire can operate at relatively high or low temperatures with no affect on the battery Large batteries are cheaper per unit of power and luminaires are usually less expensive
The “EXIT” range is illustrated with the current ‘running man’ legend and full details of the requirements are specified in Engineering note No1 at the end of this publication.Beronworth provides a variety of Single Point Units designed specifically to meet the engineers’ requirements. These units are based on British Standards and comply with the necessary regulations to ensure a safe escape from a building in an emergency. These fittings are available in ‘Maintained’ and ‘Non-maintained’ types and twin tube ‘Sustained’ are made to special order.
Environmental conditions may vary across the system, and batteries may be affected by relatively high or low temperatures Battery life is limited to between 2 and 4 years, dependant on the application Testing requires isolation and observation of each luminaire individually Central Battery Source

The emergency light could contain it’s own power supply, in the form of a battery, and this is referred to as Self Contained or Single Point.
The installation is faster and cheaper as additional power cables do not need to be run Standard wiring material can be used, as opposed to fire resistant cables required for central battery source Burn through of the mains cable will automatically satisfy the requirement for the luminaire to be lit Low maintenance costs – periodic testing and general cleaning required Low hardware equipment costs – no requirement for extended wiring, extra ventilation etc Greater system integrity as each luminaire is independant of the others System can easily be extended with additional luminaires No special sub-circuit monitoring is required
Similarly the power could be supplied from a central battery source, where a battery is located somewhere within the premises and the power is supplied to the emergency light via cabling.

One way of classifying the type of Emergency Lighting System is based on how the emergency light has it’s power supplied.
Generally, the decision to use either a central battery or a self-contained system is likely to be cost determined. If an installation has longevity and low maintenance as priorities, then the higher cost of a central battery may be acceptable on a very large project. Typically, luminaire costs and installation costs are a major consideration, particularly on smaller jobs, and it is this criterion which makes the self-contained luminaire the most popular choice.
High capital equipment costs The cost of installation and wiring is high due to the requirement for fire resistant cable like MICC or Pirelli FP200 to each luminaire Poor system integrity – failure of the battery or wiring circuit at any point can result in failure of a large part of the system Requirement for a “Battery Room” to house batteries and charging circuits, and potential requirement for ventilation systems Localised mains failure in an area of the premises may not trigger the operation of the emergency lighting in that area
These type of units are suitable for inclusion in standard lighting fittings where traditional luminaries are not acceptable or would be difficult to fit.Typical installations include warehouses and property with false ceilings where these conversion packs can be simply installed into a number of standard lighting fittings to blend into the general decor of the building. Upon mains failure, these fittings continue to be lit and the occupants can make a safe exit.
