An award winning, feature rich, cost effective, compliant emergency lighting system.

Low Voltage, Inteligent LED Emergency Lighting System


Moving away from bulk heads and central battery systems, Hochiki offers a completely unique, cost effective and fully compliant emergency lighting system. FIREscape is based around an addressable, emergency lighting control panel with battery back-up and features addressable, self-contained LED luminaires and exit signage connected via screened, extra-low voltage (40V) cabling. Furthermore, FIREscape is a fully self-monitored and self-testing system with a central point of control; making installation and maintenance quick and easy.

Features and Benefits

The FIREscape emergency lighting system has a whole host of features and benefits, making it the ideal solution for a variety of environments.



FIREscape is a fully monitored, self-testing system with addressable devices. The EL-2 control panel continuously monitors the status of the luminaires and exit signs. If there is an uncharged battery or device fault, the system will quickly locate and identify the problem, therefore making maintenance quick and easy. Plus, completed test reports are stored in the memory of the panel and can be printed for end-user records, as required by EN 50172.


Extra Low Voltage Cabling


The panel is connected to the mains power to monitor for failure, however the cabling that runs between devices is extra low voltage (40V). This means that the majority of installation and maintenance does not have to be carried out by a qualified electrical engineer; drastically reducing labour costs.


Feature Rich


FIREscape is a feature rich system with adjustable lighting levels, an intuitive graphics package, bi-coloured status LEDs, day and night modes and the ability to program units as maintained or non-maintained. The wide variety of system features and product accessories, not only helps to make installation simple, but also enables the installer to provide a flexible and cost-effective solution tailored to the requirements of the building and building owner.


Cost Effective


FIREscape has been designed to reduce total cost of ownership. The extra low voltage cabling, central monitoring, simple installation and hassle-free maintenance, reduces labour costs. Plus, the LED luminaires save money on lamp replacement costs, battery replacement and energy efficiency. Over the total life of the system, a building owner can expect to save tens of thousands of pounds.


Networkable Panels


Each panel can have two lighting lines with 127 devices per line, and up to 49 FIREscape panels can be networked together via use of serial connectors. Alternatively, an infinite number of FIREscape panels can be networked together using LAN cards (dependant on the number of IP addresses available). Whether it is a small or large building structure, FIREscape can be scaled to suit your requirements.


Integration with BMS


When used in conjunction with third party software, FIREscape can be connected to a Building Management System. Having remote central control helps building management to; increase staff productivity, manage maintenance more efficiently, and effectively monitor energy consumption. Central control is particularly beneficial when working on a large or complex site.


Environmentally Friendly


FIREscape’s standard LED luminaire’s consume less than 0.5W when charging. Once the units are fully charged they only consume 0.1W. Even the high-power luminaire consumes less than 0.2 when fully charged. A similar 8W fluorescent light will typically consume 12W. Lower energy consumption directly correlates with lower CO2e emissions; giving the building owner a greener and more cost-effective solution.


Fully Compliant


All luminaires are certified to BS EN 60598-2-22, BS EN 62034 TYPE PERC and are approved under BS KM 653255. All exit signs are BS EN ISO 7010 compliant, and the full system meets the requirements of BS EN 5266. All photometric data and energy efficiency calculations have been verified by third parties and can be found in our FIREscape catalogue. Third party approvals confirm that FIREscape is a high-quality system that will not fail in an emergency, giving building-owners total peace of mind.

Diverse range of products


The FIREsacpe range offers a diverse variety of products which gives the installer and system designer flexibility and reliability as well as ease of fix.

Exit Signs


The FIREscape LED-driven exit sign range provides a clearly visible indication of an exit during an emergency or power-outage. The signs come in two sizes, 20m viewable and 40m viewable and feature the ISO 7010 standard “exiting man” legend. The LEDs can be driven as maintained (always on) or non-maintained (on in emergency) with 7 levels of luminance controlled from the FIREscape keypad software. Each exit sign contains its own back-up battery and is fitted using the Hochiki standard mounting base, making installation quick and simple.



The FIREscape LED powered luminaires provide the required luminance along escape routes and in open spaces to aid escape during an emergency or power outage. The standard range can be fitted to ceilings up to 4m in height, with the high power range providing luminance at ceiling levels of up to 9m. Each luminaire contains its own back-up battery and is fitted using the Hochiki standard mounting base, making installation quick and simple.

Addressable Emergency Lighting Panel & Keypad


At the heart of the FIREscape system is the EL-2 control panel and the EL-KP Keypad. The panel supports up to two lines of 127 lighting devices with the remote Keypad providing the simple to use user interface. The keypad will report system status updates and can also be used to interrogate the status of the individual lighting units.

Recess Adaptors


To further enhance the aesthetics of the luminaires and exit signs, a range of semi-flush recess adaptors are available.



The FIREscape system features a range of accessories to further enhance functionality including modules, media expanders, enclosures and phase monitors.
