hi,
can a non maintained emergency light be converted into a maintained light to be switched on and off at will,

or will this break the gear in the non maintained

thanks

Simply Build It

Since the maintained versions are more expensive than non-maintained one would assume you will need new lamp. I know in some of the places I have worked to reduce stock levels we only kept maintained on the shelf and just left out the switch wire if used in non-maintained locations or bridged it where a Sustained was required but your unlikely to find that to be the case.
