Emergency Systems

Example escape route diagram

The purpose of emergency lighting is to provide light in the event of a mains or local power supply failure.

The emergency lighting design must take into account the following:

  • Escape route signs
  • Stairs so that each flight receives direct light
  • Changes in level
  • Changes of escape route direction
  • Corridor intersections
  • First aid posts
  • Fire alarm call points or pieces of fire fighting equipment
  • External areas in the immediate vicinity of final exits
  • Moving stairways and walkways
  • Toilet facilities exceeding 8m² or any multiple closet facility without borrowed light
  • Toilet facilities for disabled use
  • Motor generator, control and plant rooms
  • All other areas as deemed by the Risk Assessment

Emergency System

Spectoweb

Spectoweb

SpectoWeb is a centralised emergency lighting system which significantly reduces the cost and time required to maintain a compliant system by automating the testing process.

SpectoWeb continually monitors for faults checking every connected luminaire or exit sign and its own system communications. If a luminaire/sign develops a fault, an error is indicated locally at the luminaire, and on the remotely connected peripheral devices (SZT/SPECTOCONTROL) where fitted. At the next user defined report period an email detailing the fault is despatched to the user appointed recipient(s).

If communications are lost with a luminaire/sign, then an error is reported centrally at the controlling device. As a further contingency if the controller fails to communicate with the website for a period of 14 days, emails are sent from the website to alert site administrators that an error in communications has arisen.

Architectural Range

Architectural 250 FC

250FC

The original Philip Payne FC was one of if not the first slot or ‘blade’ fitting to be made.

Plagiarism is the highest form of flattery with many variations on this theme reaching the market since its launch. The original has been re-dimensioned and re engineered many times. However, the essential design of fixed void bracketry and a demountable gear section remains unchanged, making installation and maintenance as simple as ever. As with all Philip Payne products the FC is LED with options for self contained or central battery and controls for monitored systems. Trim-plates are available in all the Payne finishes.

Architectural 250 FC

250DW

The 250DW offers clean architectural lines.

Its versatility ensures the 250DW remains one of Payne’s best sellers. It can be mounted above the door but the slim profile also makes it possible to mount the product to the side of high feature doors whilst remaining compliant with the statutory mounting height. Rear or top cable entry provides options where surface conduit is required although the geometry of the product lends itself to concealed cable entry particularly in stairwell mounting situations. The wide variety of available finishes has seen the product extensively used in theatre and cinema applications.

Architectural 250 FC

250IW

Conventional down-facing signs can cause conflicts with door opening requirements.

The ability to invert the product and the accompanying graphics provides a simple but effective solution. Largely fixed to frames and mullions the product can be finished to suit most architectural glazing surrounds and ironmongery.

Architectural 250 FC

250CM

The 250CM can be fixed directly to the ceiling or suspended using a versatile rod suspension kit.

Payne have always favoured rods over the more commonly used chain suspension method as this provides superior rigidity and appearance. All rod kits are colour coordinated with the CM covers which are available in all Payne finishes. The standard rod kit comes with 12.5mm rods through which mains cables are fed directly into the sign. Batteries if not centrally located are housed inside the CM enclosure.

Architectural 250 FC

250SM

The visibility of any sign is crucial for it to be effective.

Although explicit in most local standards this can present a real problem to designers to ensure a safety sign is clearly within peoples viewing normal area and range. The side option provides a direct fix to the vertical plane particularly useful in Atriums and other high ceiling applications.

Mini Cylinder

Mini Cylinder

The Philip Payne Mini Cylinder offers compact, sleek, curved lines to an architectural space.

This ‘LED only’ range with comprehensive options of mounting has the full spectrum of modern emergency control/test options and a first fix installation benefit. It is quick to install as it can be fully wired at the first fix/decorating stage leaving the legend and covers assembly to be simply plugged in with no tools required.

Sprite

Sprite

The SPRITE offers a compact surface LED alternative to outdated emergency solutions. It is available in a number of standard and special finishes ensuring that impact on building design is minimal.

The SPRITE has been devised for surface mounted applications on solid ceilings where cabling may be contained in trunking or conduit. Side and rear cable entry points and BESA Box fixings are included for ease of installation.

Super 7

Super 7

Super7 combines exciting design lines with installation simplicity.

Moulded in PC/ABS, the Super7 clips together easily and quickly resulting in rapid installation.

A first fix option permits the installer to complete mains (and data) wiring before decoration. Removal of the outer cover exposes the battery, providing simple maintenance.

Tyke

Tyke

Modern LED technology permits the use of high powered LED products to provide dedicated emergency illumination previously provided by expensive converted mains luminaires or standalone fluorescent products.

The TYKE offers recessed LED alternatives to outdated emergency solutions. It is available in a number of standard and special finishes ensuring that impact on building design is minimal.
