P4 has long been an active member of the Industry Committee for Emergency Lighting (ICEL) and accredited by ICEL to carry out the conversion of mains lighting luminaires through the ICEL 1004 scheme. The ICEL 1004 scheme is regulated by ICEL and designed to ensure that organisations accredited under the scheme operate their conversion service only in accordance with the requirements of the scheme, which will provide assurance of compliant products, converted using suitable materials and best practices.

In accordance with the requirements of the ICEL 1004 conversion scheme, the warranty of any mains lighting luminaire converted by P4 to emergency operation, is accepted by P4.

In addition, emergency lighting modules and batteries fitted to convert luminaires are covered by P4’s industry leading warranty.

A sample of every mains lighting luminaires conversion by P4 is fully tested for compliance to the harmonised European standard for emergency lighting luminaires, BSEN 60598-2-22, including a full heat test and EMC compliance test, before batch production and records are kept of the results obtained and the conversion method.

By this process P4 is able to re-CE mark the resultant converted luminaires to signify full compliance to applicable European directives.

Fastel Within is your assurance that converted mains lighting luminaires will have been fully tested to ensure that they will operate correctly and be expected to have a service life that is at least equivalent to purpose designed emergency lighting products but with the features and benefits of the incorporated technology with the industry leading customer service and after sales care of P4.
