Emergency Lighting & Power System Design & Consulting in Alberta, CA

From exit lighting to someone who can design emergency lighting, we do electric power consulting for businesses in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. Our electric power consulting can make sure your facility is ready for a power outage due to a fire, accident, or regional incident.

The right standby power system can mean getting all of your professionals evacuated to safety or even maintaining your internal operations on your own power, rather than having everything interrupted or worse yet, someone injured.
Our emergency backup power consulting can be of service to a number of industries. As you look at potential power system consulting companies, consider whether others have the experience that we do in helping gathering venues, detention facilities, healthcare centers, residential buildings, offices, and mercantile buildings. We also work with industrial facilities with low, medium, and high levels of a potential hazard.

Our Calgary Emergency Backup Power & Lighting Engineering Consulting Services

Our power system engineering consultants can offer your business solutions for emergency lighting design and backup power solutions. Turn to our electrical power consultants for portable power solutions and emergency lighting systems for buildings of all kinds.

Emergency lights for commercial buildings are a common requirement for local emergency lighting regulations. We can see what the requirements for emergency lighting are where you are located and then do an electrical power system design that keeps the lights on enough for your professionals, residents, and guests to get to safety in the event of an emergency.

Emergency and standby power systems can give anyone in your facilities serious peace of mind about their safety. The right emergency backup power engineering might even let you keep internal operations going in the event of a power outage. In industrial facilities, that might be necessary so you have the chance to respond to a leak or hazardous accident happening on-site.

In retail settings or environments open to the public, emergency lights for commercial buildings can help you keep everyone calm and organized if you have many guests without the training or knowledge of the floor plan that your employees have.

Emergency Generator System Design

No matter how reliable your power utility is, having your own emergency generator adds another layer of safety and is a must-have if you want to avoid catastrophes.

Standby Generator Power System Design

Standby generators can provide you with a reliable source of power for uninterrupted illumination all the time.

Optional Standby Generator System Design

Being able to choose your source of power can mean operational flexibility.

Emergency Escape Lighting

Time is of the essence when emergency escapes are necessary, and proper lighting expedites egress.

Escape Route Lighting

Any emergency backup power design needs to start with illuminating escape routes people might need for prompt and safe evacuation.

Open Area Lighting

Open areas need enough lighting that people can see through such spaces in an emergency.

High-Risk Task Area Lighting

Specific areas of high-risk levels can benefit from specific task-oriented lighting.

Standby Lighting

Emergency system design should always incorporate standby lighting that kicks in when primary power sources are unavailable.

Emergency Power Supply Systems Requirements in Alberta

Emergency lighting equipment is supposed to activate immediately when the power supply fails so that an area still has light. Multiple backup battery units can sustain normal lighting for particular operations even when individual circuits fail instead of the primary power.
Some systems include a central battery bank storage, but providing local outage lighting coverage gets more complicated in doing this. Many manufacturers offer battery backups that can simplify electrical distribution for localized lighting, such as stairwells.
Emergency lighting circuits should include their own wiring distinct from normal lighting. This will prevent main lighting system damage from also hurting emergency lights, which can cause costlier issues to arise.
All equipment has to be mounted above floor level. Specific requirements apply for mounting battery units and distances between pieces of equipment.

It has been a great pleasure working with Monika. Her ability to influence others to achieve the team's vision is remarkable. Her endless support proved to be a great asset for any team out there that are looking for a great motivational supporter. Her knowledge brought upfront at the start of project and has been playing a valuable role since. It was a bitter sweet moment when the project was done and have to say goodbye to her as we all value her work very much.
