Why you should install LED Emergency Lights at your property

An emergency lighting system provides businesses with the ability to continue operating during power outages. These lights provide enough illumination to allow people to safely exit the building and find help. They also prevent injuries due to falling objects and other hazards.

Choosing LED emergency lights has many advantages for building owners and occupants alike.

LED Emergency Lighting

Advantages of installing LED emergency lights over other lights (or incandescent or fluorescent lamps)

Emergency lighting provides the property with constant lighting, making it safe for people within the premises to evacuate calmly in the case of a fire, even if mains power is affected.

Since LED lights don’t rely on a burning filament to generate light, they can last much longer than incandescent light bulbs—as many as 30,000 hours or more. LED lights have been used to power exit signs for several years now, with technology continuing to progress and costs continuing to decrease.


While it’s true that LED emergency lighting requires an initial investment upfront, you will get your investment back and then experience significant savings over time.

The costs associated with managing and maintaining a commercial building can add up, but you never want to cut corners when it comes to safety features. Fortunately, with LED emergency lights, you don’t have to choose between quality and cost-efficiency.

LED emergency lighting typically costs about the same as those that use incandescent or fluorescent lamps. However, they are more cost-efficient in the long run. While we will dig deeper into it below, LED lights are more energy-efficient, durable, and longer-lasting than all other types of lamps. In an emergency, the cost will not matter, but the durability and dependability of your LED emergency lighting will.


LED emergency lighting is built to withstand even the toughest emergency environments, meaning they are unaffected by shock, vibrations, and extremely high or low temperatures, so you can be confident they will last through most emergencies.

Where Incandescent and fluorescent lamps can be easily damaged or destroyed due to shocks, vibrations, and power surges. Because of this, they may fail prematurely and this can compromise safety.


LED lights have a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours, making them outperform every other type of lighting on the market. As the lights run at a lower temperature, this makes them incredibly energy efficient.

They are 85% to 90% more efficient than incandescent lamps and 40% to 50% more than fluorescent. In fact, LED fixtures, in general, can reduce energy consumption by 40% to 90% overall. But, in an emergency, you likely are not thinking about energy efficiency. However, energy-efficient lighting does mean that, should the power fail during a fire, the backup batteries included in fire exit signs keep the LED lights on longer than they would incandescent or fluorescent counterparts, giving occupants more time to get out.


This allows them to be seen from a very far distance and allows for full visibility, which is critical in the event of an emergency to enable people to evacuate the building safely.

LED emergency lighting offers many benefits from their cost, reliability, and efficiency, but most importantly they can be counted on in an emergency situation when you need them most.


With a long lifespan, LED lighting means reduced maintenance. While LED lights require the same inspections and testing as all other emergency lightings, replacement becomes much less frequent.
