Blade light illuminated sign
It is worth noting that some emergency lighting may be of the box legend, blade light or bulkhead lighting units fitted with fire safety legends on the front.
These are now considered to be illuminated signs rather than emergency lighting, and that an additional emergency light should be fitted within two metres. The reason is for the reduced level of light output in low light conditions.
