What Is the Difference Between Maintained & Non-Maintained Emergency Lighting?
The main difference between maintained and non-maintained emergency lighting has to do with the luminaire in non-maintained emergency lighting that is designed specifically for emergency use. A non-maintained emergency lighting system will activate in the event of a mains power failure but will remain inactive during regular, day-to-day activities.
