What We Did

For over 20 years, P4 has been the trusted provider of emergency lighting products to Airedale General Hospital, playing a pivotal role in ensuring the safety and security of patients, staff, and visitors. In the late 1990s, the hospital faced the challenge of upgrading its emergency lighting systems to comply with evolving safety regulations and enhance overall operational resilience. Recognising the crucial importance of reliable emergency lighting in a healthcare setting, the hospital sought a long-term partner capable of delivering cutting-edge solutions tailored to its unique needs.

P4 emerged as the ideal partner, combining a wealth of experience with a forward-thinking approach to emergency lighting technology. Working closely with the facilities management team, P4’s state-of-the-art M-Web networked addressable system has been rolled out across the estate, ensuring compliance with industry standards. By introducing these intelligent control systems, the Trust has seen a significant reduction in testing and maintenance costs, when compared to the traditional manual methods. The new systems incorporate pioneering LiFePO4 battery technology which delivers consistent performance over a longer term, providing extended life expectancy.

The enduring partnership between P4 and Airedale General Hospital reflects a commitment to reliability, innovation, and a shared dedication to the highest standards of healthcare. This journey is a testament to the positive effect that a dynamic emergency lighting partner can have on the safety of a healthcare premises and its community.
