Special demands for rescue areas
It is important to install floodlights to illuminate the surface of the sea in order to identify rescue boats and life rafts to enable people to disembark from the cruise ship or ferry. This lighting must provide instantaneous light output from the moment it is switched on. Emergency (battery-powered) back up lighting must also be installed in case of power failure or black-out situations.
Important factors to consider when choosing lighting solutions for muster/assembly/rescue areas:
- Floodlights to illuminate the surface of the sea.
- Instant light output from start-up.
- Emergency systems in case of black-outs.
- Ingress Protection (IP) rating.
