Exit & Emergency Lighting Maintenance

Exit Emergency Lighting

Central TNT provides services on the Central Coast for exit emergency lighting systems testing and maintenance.
In accordance with Australian Standard 2293.2, emergency lighting systems are required to be certified six-monthly by conducting a 90 minute battery power down (discharge) test. This test certifies that all the exit & emergency lights are functional and that batteries maintain their charge for 90 minutes during a power blackout or building fire. We offer a full maintenance service where the exit and emergency units can be tested, maintained and repaired at your workplace.
Central TNT conducts 6 and 12 monthly compliance inspections as required by Australian Standard 2293.2. By routinely having the exit emergency lighting on your premises inspected, tested and data recorded, your company will be fulfilling its obligations under legislative requirements.
