At Powerguard, we are expert and bespoke manufacturers of Central Battery Systems for Emergency Lighting.
We build by hand in our factory here in Lincolnshire and have over 50 years’ experience in the specifying, designing, building and installing of Emergency Lighting Systems.
As we manufacture in house, we are able to tailor our systems to the exact specifications required by our clients.
Emergency lighting is a backup lighting solution that powers up in the event that mains power supply is unable to function correctly in an emergency, such as a fire or power cut.
The battery system or static inverter will activate the emergency exit signs and other illumination fixtures, to ensure that areas such as prisons, hospitals and public areas like cinemas and offices can be evacuated safely.
Emergency lighting solutions must operate seamlessly to ensure there is an automatic lighting source to help those within the building exit the premises safely and securely.
The idea of a central battery system for emergency lighting is that the backup power source runs centrally, which means that each emergency illuminance and exit light don’t require an individual battery or back up capacitor.
Due to our years of experience and knowledge in the industry, we offer in-depth technical expertise, design, and installation advice with full after sales support when it comes to static inverters, central battery systems and emergency lighting.

The British Standard clearly states that the responsible person for the building construction and its ongoing maintenance must work under the BS 5266-1 regulation, which applies to many different commercial/public environments such as hospitals, hotels, educational settings, nursing homes, pubs, bars and clubs, offices, prisons, museums, and the domestic applications in multi-storey dwellings such as blocks of flats.
BS EN 50172/BS 5266-8 stipulates minimum provisions for testing central battery and emergency lighting systems:
