Answers To Your Most Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is there an NFPA code or standard that requires tests and maintenance to be conducted periodically?
Yes! NFPA 101 Life Safety Code Section 31-11.3.7 requires a 30 second test at 30 day intervals and an annual test for a 90 minute duration. NFPA 70 National Electric Code Section 700-4 requires testing upon installation and periodically afterward. Both codes also require written records to be kept for inspection by the authority having jurisdiction.

 

Q: Does OSHA – Occupational Safety and Health Administration have any authority over emergency lighting?
Yes! Very much so. Section 1910.36 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act requires among other things: In every building or structure equipped for artificial illumination adequate and reliable illumination shall be provided for all exit facilities.

Q: Is my facility likely to have its emergency lighting inspected by “the authority having jurisdiction?”
Yes! Fire Marshals, Building Inspectors, and OSHA Inspectors can all inspect emergency lighting and give out fines if the units prove to be inoperable.

Q: What is emergency lighting?
Emergency lighting equipment is designed to provide illumination during power outages. The equipment is made up of a rechargeable battery, a means to charge the battery, one or more lamps to provide illumination, and a relay device to energize the lamps automatically when the AC power fails.

Excellent work performed by Luke. When you pay a company to maintain equipment that protects your business, you better get it right. Silco is a VAST improvement over my past company out of Cincinnati. Thank you Luke and Silco. You've earned your review with excellence. Sawyer's Downtown. Lexington, Ky

Annual Visits are a breeze and their reporting to the fire department is an excellent new benefit. I have been utilizing their services for almost 10 years and am delighted that we are always in a safe way with their inspections and certification products. Joe Martini is a friendly and knowledgeable individual who makes the process fun and enjoyable.

Silco does an excellent job for our business, and has for the last eight years. When I call on our representative, Fred M. I know I can COUNT on him to take care of whatever we need 100%, as well as give us knowledgeable, fast and reliable service! Example: Yesterday I called with a problem/concern that we had to have have taken care of within the next three days...he was here 1st thing this morning and scheduled service for another branch of Silco that we use. We are extremely grateful to have Fred as our Fire safety expert and hope he is around at Silco for years to come! He truly makes you guys look good. Thank you!

We just recently switched to Silco for our Fire extinguisher services. Shane was very helpful and made the switch easy and worked around my schedule to get it done in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for service.

Bobby Rutherford from Silco was an excellent Tech. Not only was he here on time, and explained what he was working on he also made sure I was fully covered for my upcoming fire inspection.I called in to have my annual fire suppression system inspection. Bobby checked the emergency lights (also installed 4 new lights I had bought), fire extinguishers, fire supressuppr system, and put his sticker on everything he touched and went through. I am confident the fire marshal will be impressed when he comes in. Lastly he went over the invoice in detail letting me know what I was paying for. I could not be happier with the service. Silco is the only company I will work with from now on.
