Emergency Pack

What is an emergency pack?

Emergency packs are designed to illuminate even when mains power is lost, enabling occupants to escape in the event of an emergency which could cause a power cut, such as a fire.  We use high quality Lite-Plan emergency components, which include a controller, additional LED, and rechargeable battery pack.  These are designed to provide emergency illumination for 3 hours.

See the emergency controller datasheet for more details.

The regulations

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order, which came into force in October 2006, charges the responsible person of non-domestic premises and the common areas of a House in Multiple Occupancy (eg. Landlords and facilities managers) with the safety of everyone in the building, whether working, visiting or living there. This duty of care includes the provision of emergency lighting.  Article 14 (2) (h) of the RRFSO states:

“Emergency routes and exists requiring illumination must be provided with emergency lighting of adequate intensity in the case of failure of their normal lighting."  "It is particularly important the staircase and escape route are adequately lit as people may be in a state of distress, panic or disorientation when abruptly woken during a fire. This applies especially during the night."

If you are using a GLS (E27) light source option WITH an emergency pack, please use an LED E27 lamp.  This is necessary because traditional filament incandescent bulbs tend to get fairly hot and can overheat components in the emergency pack.

Microwave Proximity Motion Sensor

What is a proximity sensor?

Proximity sensors allow motion (e.g. walking into a room) to trigger the light fitting to turn on.  This contributes to energy saving by ensuring the light is switched off when no-one is in the room.  
As an added benefit, these particular sensors can also optionally be configured to only trigger when natural daylight is low (so lights do not illuminate during the day).

How does a microwave proximity sensor vary from other proximity sensors?

Microwave sensors can effectively see through solid objects.  This means that the sensor is not visible from outside of the light fitting, unlike PIR sensors which rely on a clear line of sight to work.   

Can I configure the sensors to suit my needs?

Yes - the following settings can be easily adjusted by tweaking the DIP switches on the sensor module.

  • Detection range (Sensitivity / distance at which motion triggers the sensor):  100%, 75%, 50%, 30%, OFF
  • Hold Time (How long the light stays on after detecting movement): 5s, 30s, 1min, 5min, 10min, 20min, 30min
  • Daylight threshold (Only allow the light to switch on in low levels of daylight): Disabled, 50 Lux, 20 Lux, 5 Lux, 2 Lux

DALI Control Module

What is a DALI control module?

DALI is the name for a popular lighting control protocol that allows lights to be individually addressed and controlled via a central controller.  This allows complex lighting control, enabling different lighting "scenes" to be preset. - By doing so, the individual off/on state and dimming level (if applicable) can be set and assigned to each light for any given preset scene. 

Is this a complete system?
No - This add-on module only adds DALI functionality to the light it's self - it is not a complete system.  You will also require further DALI hardware to control your lights as well as additional wiring to set up a complete DALI lighting control system.

A contemporary concrete uplight, with a discrete 70mm front profile height. Suitable for wall mounting.

Our range of concrete lighting conveys an austere and minimalist aesthetic in line with some of the latest trends in interior design, whilst maintaining a degree of warmth through the addition of Portland limestone during the casting process.

This fitting is hand crafted using a modern concrete composite material, designed to be more durable and tolerant to changes in heat and moisture content, whilst simultaneously providing a superior finish. After the concrete is poured and cured in rubber moulds, each fitting is then painstakingly hand finished to our exacting standards.

This fitting can also be specified with an optional integral maintained emergency pack. This pack consists of a backup battery and auxiliary LED, which automatically illuminates in the case of power failure, in order to provide safe exit from a building in an emergency. Provisions for emergency lighting are also a legal requirement in many non-domestic buildings, as well as HMOs.

Tornado has been manufacturing hand-crafted luminaires since 1985 and we are able to provide replacements for every design we have every released. We are committed to promoting high-tech and energy efficient light sources, as well as sustainable and ethical manufacturing processes.
