    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out requirements for the design, construction, performance and testing of emergency luminaires and exit signs to ensure that they function in a safe and effective manner under expected operational and environmental conditions. Applies both to emergency luminaires and exit signs which are centrally supplied and emergency luminaires and exit signs of the self-contained type. Different requirements are specified for application in Australia and New Zealand, particularly with respect to exit signs.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for the design, construction, performance and testing of emergency luminaires and exit signs. It applies both to emergency luminaires and exit signs which are centrally supplied, and to emergency luminaires and exit signs of the self-contained type. Different requirements are specified for application in Australia and New Zealand with respect to exit signs (see Section 3).NOTES:1 Requirements for the installation and operation of emergency luminaires and exit signs are specified in AS/NZS 2293.1. Requirements for the periodic inspection and maintenance of emergency luminaires and exit signs are set out in AS/NZS 2293.2.2 Appendix A lists the essential data and preferred format of test reports for emergency luminaires and exit signs. Such information may be required (e.g. by purchasers or inspecting authorities) to substantiate compliance with the requirements of this Standard.3 A sample declaration of the compliance of emergency luminaires and exit signs with this Standard is given in Appendix B.
