Lighting in the event of power cuts
Emergency lighting in the event of a power failure
What lighting options are available in the event of a power failure?
In the event of climatic disturbances, grid failures or peak electricity consumption, our power grids are sometimes unstable and cause power outages.
Our dependence on electricity is such that during a power cut, we find it almost impossible to go about our daily lives. It goes without saying that the first thing everyone wants to do when a power cut occurs and it is no longer light outside, is to find a safe light source to find their way around a house or apartment that is completely dark.
Candles and torches, although used quite frequently, have their limits:
- a candle needs to have something to light it (matches or lighter) and is not the safest way; a candle that spills on a tablecloth or carpet may start a fire
- a torch works with batteries and unless you regularly check the status of these batteries, its use can be seriously compromised if they are defective or have run out of charge. Moreover, especially in large houses, the idea of buying a torch for every room does not seem practical.
