Emergency lighting systems save lives

DC emergency lighting systems from PB Design combine the company's expertise in uninterrupted power with regulatory compliance to safeguard lives during power outages.

  • Choice of floating, maintained and non-maintained operation covers all applications
  • Full custom design service provides exact match to requirements
  • Multiple battery options enable trade-off between Capex and Opex costs
  • Designed to BS5266, ICEL 1001 and BS EN 50081-1 ensures regulatory compliance

PB Design offers a full range of DC emergency lighting systems, designed and manufactured in accordance with the relevant sections of BS5266, ICEL 1001 and BS EN 50081-1. These systems combine the company's acclaimed constant voltage battery charging technology with a choice of battery types to provide the ultimate assurance of continuous supply to your critical lighting systems.

System options range from fully floating operation, where the lighting circuits are continually powered from the output of the charger / batteries, to non-maintained operation, where the emergency lighting is only energised when the AC mains supply fails. Battery choices available range from cost-effective sealed lead-acid units to maintenance-free nickel-cadmium types.

The DC emergency lighting systems run from 230V single-phase or 400V three-phase supplies, with nominal system outputs of 24, 48 or 110V. Digital metering is standard for battery voltage and charge/discharge current, and an alarm system provides audible and visible indication of faults with a volt-free output to a building monitoring system.

Importantly, PB Design provides a comprehensive inspection, commissioning and maintenance service, in line with regulatory requirements for emergency lighting systems to give peace of mind that your system is always fully operational.

DC emergency lighting systems from PB Design have been specified in many major infrastructure projects around the world over the past 40 years. These systems have justifiably earned a reputation for the highest reliability, availability and performance levels, even in the most hostile of environments.

PB Design is recognised as a leader in the design, manufacture and application of standby power systems. Since its foundation in 1979, the company has developed a leading edge range of battery chargers and uninterruptible power supplies covering a full range of AC and DC standby power requirements.
