At TGA Electrical we understand how important it is to maintain a safe and compliant workplace whether it is a commercial or industrial building. That's why we offer emergency and exit light testing, repairs, and upgrades to businesses throughout Mackay, Paget and the surrounding areas.

​You can rest assured that your emergency and exit lighting systems are in good hands. We offer a wide range of services to ensure that your lights are always up-to-date and functioning correctly, including:

​The Australian Building Codes stipulate that emergency and exit lighting installed in public buildings is required to be maintained to current AS/NZS 2293.1:2018. This includes periodic maintenance and inspection procedures outlined in AS/NZ 2293.2:1995 essential to ensuring emergency evacuation lighting systems are in a state of readiness for operation at all times. 

Emergency lighting kicks in when you have a power outage to ensure your staff, clients and the public can safely exit your building.

Our team of licensed electricians has years of experience working with emergency and exit lighting systems. We use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that your lights are functioning correctly, and we can quickly identify any issues that may arise.
