BS EN 1838 is an European Standard that specifies the luminous requirements for emergency escape lighting and standby lighting systems installed in premises or locations where such systems are required. It is principally applicable to locations where the public or workers have access.
The overall objective of emergency escape lighting is to enable safe exit from a location in the event of failure of the normal supply.
The objective of each form within this category is as follows:
There are techniques that may be used as a supplement and when applied to escape routes in addition to conventional emergency lighting luminaires can enhance their effectiveness in an emergency. These techniques are not included in this standard.
Vision varies from person to person, both by the amount of light required to perceive an object clearly and in the time taken to adapt to changes in the illuminance. In general, older people need more light and take a longer time to adapt to low illuminance on a hazard or escape route.
Much anxiety and confusion can be alleviated by strategically placed signs indicating the way out of a location. It is very important that exits are clearly signposted and are visible, whenever the location is occupied.
