Pocket Guide Makes Light Work of Meeting I.S. 3217

Fire and life safety systems manufacturer, Advanced, has published its I.S. 3217 Pocket Guide to Emergency Lighting.

Developed for those in the Republic of Ireland responsible for the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of emergency lighting systems, the guide serves as a tool to make compliance with I.S. 3217 quicker and easier.

The I.S. 3217 Pocket Guide to Emergency Lighting outlines the importance of emergency lighting, the legislation surrounding it, and solutions available to ensure compliance. It also offers up-to-date, easy-to-follow information on lighting placement and lighting levels as well as addressing the criteria that need to be met around system design and light testing.

Matt Jones, Emergency Lighting Business Manager at Advanced, said: “As a minimum, emergency lighting systems in the Republic of Ireland should meet the I.S. 3217 standard, however, the rules can be confusing. We’re committed to making things as simple and easy as possible for our customers, so this new guide, used alongside our LuxIntelligent emergency lighting system, gives designers, installers and end users peace of mind that they have emergency lighting compliance covered.

“We believe the guide is the first of its type for the Irish market and complements Advanced’s existing suite of emergency lighting training and support materials. These include our on-demand webinar, ‘Bridging the Gap Between Fire and Emergency Lighting Systems’, and CPD presentation, ‘The Best Route to Compliance for your Emergency Lighting Systems’.”

The I.S. 3217 Pocket Guide to Emergency Lighting is available as a hard copy, or can be downloaded here: https://qrco.de/bcLHcM, or from www.luxintelligent.com via PC, tablet or smartphone, ideal for those managing and maintaining lighting systems on the go. The guide is intended as an aide to designers and installers of emergency lighting systems and is not to be used as a substitute for I.S. 3217 which should be read in full.

Advanced offers a complete range of emergency lighting solutions, spearheaded by LuxIntelligent, the automatic, addressable, emergency lighting test system, that shows all emergency lights are compliant and functioning, with no engineer involvement required. Each panel can automatically test and monitor nearly 1,000 luminaires and can be easily networked using existing wiring and lights, keeping installation costs to a minimum. The system also offers optional cloud monitoring and management via mobile and web apps.
