Install & Maintain All Emergency Lighting

In Australia, it is mandatory that emergency and exit lights be compliant with existing building codes and laws. They need to maintain illumination for a minimum of 90 minutes in case of a blackout. Aside from the legal aspect, it’s crucial to recognise that these lights help improve the safety levels on your property and that is something you should never compromise on. 

To ensure that the exit and emergency lights on your property are selected with care and installed to the highest industry standards, you need the services of expert, licensed electrical experts like the ones at ARC Electrical & Data. We can supply, install as well as maintain all emergency lighting features on your property ensure you’re compliant for any audits.

Why Do You Need Exit and Emergency Lights?

Emergency lights and exit signs are some of the most neglected aspects of a building. People don’t understand their value until there is an emergency, which is why it is essential to install and maintain them well. Here’s a look at some reasons why you need exit signs or emergency lights:

  • During Fire – People panic during a fire, which creates a very chaotic environment. Many people start looking for clear escape routes in smoky or dim conditions, and that can be very challenging. Emergency lights are bright enough to be visible through these conditions, helping people see egress routes clearly.
  • During Blackouts – Emergency lights switch on immediately after a blackout, providing the occupants some time to prepare. They can prevent workplace accidents by making sure workers aren’t entirely left in the dark while performing a risky task. For example, if a blackout occurs while some kitchen staff is carrying hot pans around, it can cause serious injuries. Emergency lights ensure they can safely place the pans on a countertop without hurting anyone.
  • Less Panic – People are less likely to panic during emergencies if they can see exits. Emergency lights ensure all occupants remain calm while waiting for emergency services or power. 

The lights also make staircases safer during power outages. These places are very risky because people can easily trip if they aren’t careful. Well-lit stairs reduce the chances of injuries and provide a safer getaway.

Safety Standards in Australia

The Australian government has specific instructions on the installation, operation, and maintenance of emergency lights. All fixtures must comply with these standards to pass inspections. Our technicians will install the systems ensuring they meet government requirements. We will also check all installations so that they can pass a 90-minute discharge test as mandated by the authorities.

We can also carry out inspections every six months and cleaning every 12 months if needed.

Our Customers


Excellent service. We had a difficult situation and was responded to promptly. Great communication and the team had to work in difficult weather conditions to restore our power. We highly recommend ARC electrical.


ARC are a very reliable company. They arrived when they said they would, they documented all the work that needed to be done and took photos and then sent me a quote when they said they would. The team were brilliant and professional in their work as well as advising us of outdated smoke alarms we didn’t know needed replacing (the alarm themselves had expired and we didn't know as we had just purchased the house) so they replaced them on the spot for us also. Don’t just call them for a repair u can call them if u have an electrical issue and are not sure what needs to be done as they are great in finding solutions as well.


If you want exceptional standards, fantastic communication and people who are polite and respectful then Adam and he's Off Sider are the people you want. They arrived when they said they would, they called when they said they would, they did the job and more for the quoted price - no surprises. As a single female (I know - it shouldn't matter but we know it does), I rely trades people and hope I get quality ones. I struck gold finding ARC. I most certainly use them again and highly recommend them for sure! Nice work guys.


Highly recommend ARC electrical. Had some small jobs completed around the home by Josh. On time and pleasant to deal with. Will be getting them back for more work needing to be completed soon.
