Emergency Lighting Conference - April 2015

As one of the main sponsors Philip Payne were delighted with the attendance and positive feedback from the industry conference held in London on 23.04.15.

Delegates from the building design fraternity sat alongside end users with a common goal of further understanding the challenges that immerse emergency lighting compliance.
These  ranged from the non negotiable statutory requirements to the obstacles faced when trying to ensure the aesthetics of a designed area are not compromised by Em Lighting.
Philip Payne remain market leaders when it comes to the latter -  see   for shots of some of our project work including The Walkie Taklie , The Gherkin , The Shard , Shakespeare's Globe , Wembley Stadium , Royal Ascot and many other iconic London and UK landmarks   .
