Reducing the complexity of Emergency lighting in Healthcare

Clevertronics has been involved in hundreds of emergency lighting projects across the healthcare market, from clinics to the most prominent hospitals across Australia. Hospitals are complex facilities where various and often critical functions and tasks are carried out 24/7. Therefore, careful consideration is required to specify and install the right emergency lighting system. One of those considerations is the lifetime of the emergency and exit luminaires, as any maintenance can be highly disruptive to the hospital's operation. 

Many hospitals though have eliminated the maintenance concern after installing the L10 Nanophosphate range, which has an incredible 12-year lifetime. This has provided peace of mind that regular maintenance is limited and, in most cases, eliminated during this period. 

The second consideration is the choice of an emergency lighting system to manage the monitoring and testing of these long-life fittings. Zoneworks XT has long been the system of choice across the healthcare system. The latest upgrade has made the system more powerful and easy to install and operate due to the use of a single controller and no other backbone hardware. Zoneworks XT HIVE makes it simple to upgrade existing sites, extend into new development areas or install from new. The system utilises a self-dynamic meshing technology that connects luminaires across the site. Multi-building healthcare sites are ideal for HIVE as it can skip from building to building without the use of additional hardware or antennas. Areas sensitive to RF can also be managed through utilising existing powerline technology within the Zoneworks XT family.

Managing emergency lighting compliance on a medium to large site without a monitoring and testing system can be challenging. Combine this with buildings that have been extended and upgraded over the years it becomes even more difficult.

The maintenance of the competitor Nickel Cadmium fittings was a constant challenge due to the high failure rate of batteries, poor communications to the fittings and no local technical support.

What emergency lighting solution is best suited for Healthcare

When considering the best emergency lighting solution for your facility or project it is important to consider two key areas; luminaire lifetime and compliance testing. Increased lifetime will provide lower maintenance costs and automated testing provides fast compliance reporting and reassurance that your life safety devices are in working order.
