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."

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE
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.

The TR7226 is a slim up/down light with a shallow projection of just 75mm from the wall. This light works well in medium to large rooms and spaces, and is ideally suited to use in bedrooms and stairwells, where a slim projection is desirable.

Supplied with this luminaire is a clear, frosted diffuser, designed to be fitted on at the bottom of the light, obscuring the fitting's innards, reducing glare and also softening and diffusing the light.

Our range of linear plaster wall lights was conceived to suit contemporary interiors. By using clean lines and simple rectangular forms, the designs mirror the shapes and aspect ratios of the walls they are situated on. This leads to a wholly integrated look and a coherent final design. Keeping these light fittings free of superfluous design detail, we have produced a range of minimalist lighting that sits quietly in the background without drawing attention to the luminaires themselves. Each plaster shell provides a pure, brilliant white colour, with a soft matte finish. This level of minimalism and pureness in the finish is unparalleled in any other material and is not attainable through inferior alternatives such as ceramics. Some architects and designers who specify our lights also opt for the lights to be painted, in order to match or colour co-ordinate with existing wall paint. Our lights can optionally be painted with standard emulsion paint, but require a PVA & water undercoat beforehand (see website for details).

This fitting is hand crafted using a modern plaster composite material, designed to be more durable and tolerant to changes in heat and moisture content, whilst simultaneously providing a superior finish. After the plaster is poured and cured in rubber moulds, each fitting is then painstakingly hand finished to our exacting standards. Each exterior surface is left perfectly smooth, with all edges clean and crisp.

We offer the following light source options:

  • 1xTH - Tungsten Halogen (lamp not included - typical output: 1600 lm, dimmable via rheostat)
  • 2xEcoLED - LED (lamp included - output: 2400 lm, non-dimmable)
  • 2xProLED - LED (lamp included - output: 2110 lm, dimmable via various approved dimmers*)
    * for full dimmer compatibility, see dimmer compatibility datasheet  and check dimmers against "PARATHOM DIM LINE 118"

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.
