Strata Maintenance (Part 5 – Stair & Walkway Lighting)
June 1, 2022
As with car park lighting, communal areas in public spaces need to be sufficiently lit.
Faulty lights create liability issues if people cannot see where they are walking. Or if people are not safe from thieves hiding in dark spaces.
Buildings built prior to 2015 are likely to have halogen and fluorescent style lighting installed. These lights are nearing the end of their serviceable life and equivalent LED lighting is available. LED lighting is more reliable and much more energy efficient.
