Real life 'emergency lighting test'
We all know where smoke goes when there's a fire and we all know where the electrical emergency lights are fitted right? Yet we continue to fit light fittings on the ceilings (particularly in social housing). So in order to demonstrate how ineffective and useless these electrical emergency lights are in smoke, we will be carrying out a real 'burn test' test this month in association with a number of agencies and Local Authorities. Please do come back to our site soon to see the results. We are very confident that you will find the test news very interesting.

Low level escape lighting test
A recent emergency escape lighting test was carried out in an extremely large London hostel by one of the UK's leading Research Agencies. We will share the results once further tests have been carried out.
RNIB install photoluminescent low level wayguidance
The RNIB install a full photoluminescent wayguidance system into their flagship assisted living residential block in South East London.
This installation follows other installations in other London Borough social housing blocks and not only assists able bodied residents and occupants but in particular aids the visually impaired and the blind who are generally forgotten when it comes to fire and means of escape. The photoluminescent system is fully Equality Act 2010 compliant when it comes to the means of escape and in particular the highlighting of stair nosings.
Euro Compliance are commissioned by the London Borough of Camden to coordinate the installation of a pilot test watermist system into one of their sheltered housing blocks to include all required specification and detail as well as liaison with the London Fire Brigade.
Primary Authority Partnership
Euro Compliance become the first fire consultancy in the UK to be authorised as a Primary Authority Partner by the Secretary of State. Managing Director Paul Williams said "We are both delighted and extremely proud to be the first fire consultancy in the UK to have been accepted into the Primary Authority scheme. We are currently in the process of bringing some very exciting developments to the world of fire safety which not only makes those escaping from fire safer but is also common sense. Undoubtedly it will take some time to raise awareness and acceptance levels but acceptance by the Primary Authority as well as global evidence tell us that our proposition is one that works and we are confident that in time many fire safety professionals will look back and ask why we in the UK have quite simply fallen behind the rest of the world".
