Maintained and non-maintained emergency lighting: what is the difference?

Whether it’s through fire, earthquake or someone tripping over a cable, loss of power in a public building can induce panic, hinder escape and ultimately cost lives. Inability to locate an exit can be devastating for a whole number of reasons, from genuine danger to misconceived hysteria.

As such, by law, every building that is designed for public use must be fitted with Emergency Lighting that activates in the event of a power cut (irrespective of the reason) and guide its occupants to the nearest emergency exit. Emergency lighting is generally split into two options, maintained and non-maintained, but what’s the difference, and why should it matter to you?

Non-Maintained Emergency Lighting

Non-maintained emergency lighting exists for one reason – to switch on when a building’s mains power fails. Linked to a battery and the building’s lighting circuitry, these lights remain off while the primary supply is working properly and will only turn on when this is lost. These luminaires exist in many forms, from smaller, lower wattage pin lights that emit just enough light to illuminate exit routes, to illuminated signs that glow in the event of a power cut and identify emergency exits.

This kind of lighting is generally used in environments where the occupants are already familiar with their surroundings such as offices, factories and other workspaces.

Maintained Emergency Lighting

Maintained emergency lighting does exactly the same as its non-maintained brother, but also doubles as a building’s primary lighting supply. Powered by the mains but also linked to a chargeable battery, it switches to the latter when access to the former is lost. Basically, this is a light that remains on at all times.

This kind of lighting is used in environments where occupants may not necessarily know where they’re going and will need to be guided to the nearest exit via generously illuminated walkways such as shopping centres, cinemas, theatres and other public areas.

So which should I use?

There is no ‘best’ option when it comes to emergency lighting, just that which is more applicable to your uses. For example, lighting a stairwell that exists purely as an exit route with maintained emergency lighting would prove to be a colossal exercise in wastefulness, whilst installing small, 3W LED non-maintained lights in a large public gallery with high ceilings and cavernous rooms would also prove to be a mistake.

Right time to switch to LED downlights with its prices down further

For recessed fixtures, we carry a full line of LED down light bulbs. At 2 inches wide, the Illum 2.0 MR-11 is one of the smallest lights we carry. It’s a super efficient 2.5 Watt replacement for a 20 Watt halogen thanks to the single Cree XP-G chip inside. A great low-temperature solution for low-voltage systems.
On the opposite side of the size scale is the 7.5” Ceiling LED light bulb with its E40 mogul base. Also built with the XP-G, this 45 Watt bulb replaces a 400 Watt halogen! Just thinking about the heat from a 400 Watt halogen makes us sweat.

Now LED Light Bulbs can Offer a warm glow similar to any Incandescent Bulbs

“Those lights make everything look blue.” Ugh. I’ve heard that remark about LED lighting too many times to count. For me, as a designer (aka home-problem-solver), it’s frustrating to hear friends reminisce about how the glow from 60-watt incandescent light bulbs would make their homes look and ‘feel’ so warm.
Well, LED light bulbs can make your home look and ‘feel’ equally as warm as those 60-watt incandescent lights. True story.
LED Lighting Bulbs Don’t Have To Be Blue
LED light bulbs don’t have to be blue, there’s lots of choices.
It’s like everything else in the world of technology, there’s lots of options with LEDS: variety of color temperatures, dimmability and brightness. There also are more tech specs you’ll want to know about in order to achieve the desired color of light in your home.
The Tiffany styled art glass floor lamp has a color temperature of 3000k, which is similar to the temperature of the 60-watt bulb.
The Higher Temperature Means Cooler Light
For any type of light, the higher the temperature, the cooler the light.
LED lighting is available in a variety of color temperatures. I think that one of the best parts about LED light bulbs is that they have a wide range of color temperature possibilities. And it’s probably the easiest part of tech specs to remember.
If you want the inside of your home to look like it ‘used to look’ with incandescent light bulbs, you like the warmer light look, you’ll want to look for an LED that has a color temperature around 2700K to 3000K.
