Creative Lab: Emergency Lighting Circuits

THIS MONTH’S CHALLENGE:
In commercial, multi-family and hospitality applications, the code requirement for emergency lighting circuits (EMRs) using decorative fixtures for common areas and corridors can be challenging to find.


SOLUTION:
LIGHT offers a number of solutions to this common problem that include EMR options on the fixtures themselves. In addition, we have included some inverter systems that can be utilized to meet the emergency code requirement for lighting on fixture that do not include them.
