Film and Television Work

During Colin’s 25 years in the business, he has worked on some of the most well known soaps including Hollyoaks, Coronation Street, Emmerdale and most recently I’m a Celebrity.

We were very proud to be part of the Im a celebrity get me out of here set in Wales 2020.

We supplied and installed a Wireless carbon monoxide and smoke detection system on set and behind the scenes, that included the trials area.

It was an addressable system and all information went to three tablets that staff members looking after safety were able to have on their person at all times.

Hollyoaks involved some on set filming but the majority of the work was behind the scenes ensuring safety and being on hand in case of fire

The Coronation street work was filmed over eight evenings through the night which involved on set work but again the majority was behind the scenes. It was a major story line where Kal and Leanne were caught up in a fire at Carla’s flat which had been started Tracy Barlow.

Emmerdale was another big story line featuring the helicopter crash in which Val died after getting trapped in the hall of mirrors.

The Girl with All the Gifts is a 2016 Zombie film starring Gemma Arterton and was filmed on Cannock Chase and in Birmingham at various locations and again, the work was behind the scenes minimising the risk of fire.

Maintaining your Emergency Lighting System

As with all emergency equipment, it’s essential emergency lighting is tested and maintained.
Most businesses will appreciate this but there can be some variability about the understanding of exactly what’s needed!

While this will be determined by individual emergency lighting systems, as a general guide most systems need to be checked over every month, then given a full duration test each year.

The Monthly Test

This only needs to be a short test to check everything’s functioning correctly. Ensure all emergency lighting’s illuminating when the mains power is switched off using your test key, and check over the casings to make sure they are clean and aren’t showing any signs of damage. Once mains power is restored, check they are fully charging up again. Keep a record of results in the log book and if any failures are detected, sort them out as soon as possible.

The Annual Test

It is really important that emergency lights are given a full rated duration test every year. That means if the emergency lights back up should provide 3 hours of illumination (which is often the case), they need to be tested for the full 3 hours to ensure they’re still working at the end of the test.
