Roclec’s team of electricians are experts in the Installation and Certification of Emergency Lighting in Cork. Emergency Lighting is the first line of escape in the event of an emergency. Emergency lights illuminate the safest way to the nearest exit. If the emergency lighting has defects it can inevitably lead to accident or death. Defective systems can lead to the prosecution of the premises owner or employer for negligence.
We offer full commissioning of new installations and annual testing of existing installations of emergency lighting in Cork, ensuring that all of our customers have peace of mind. All public buildings and businesses must have an efficient and safe emergency lighting system ready if and when required.
We test emergency lighting systems and fix defects quickly
Many companies who test emergency lighting simply test the system and issue a report listing defects. Your business will then need to employ a qualified electrician to take action. This will inevitably add to costs with the possibility of long delays prior to the defects being corrected. Our team of qualified electricians will test and fix any defects found as quickly as possible and with little or no inconvenience caused.
We can produce log books for your entire emergency lighting system
Many emergency lighting systems throughout Ireland are not clearly identified and thus not up to regulation standard. All Public Buildings and Businesses must label all emergency lights and they must have a corresponding log book and drawings. This information is crucial and must be available to the fire officer when applying for or renewing a license. If your business does not have these logs in place, we can label and produce cross reference drawings and log books for your entire emergency lighting system. This procedure will speed up the process of future maintenance and save time and money.
Emergency Lights must be tested and maintained on a regular basis as legal requirement
Emergency Lighting is one of the most important aspects of any building no matter the size or nature of the business. It is a life safety system and must, by law, be maintained and tested on a regular basis as stated by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI).
The Code of Practice for Emergency Lighting IS3217: 2013

‘In addition to the moral duty placed on the occupiers of buildings and employers, there are specific statutory duties, which require adequate signage and emergency lighting in buildings. Life safety systems in buildings and industrial plants are essential to the maintenance of a safe place of work and emergency lighting, which is one of the key systems, must be maintained to the highest levels’
