Advanced Fire Rated Downlight - 90 Minute Protection
For Mains & LED GU10 Lamps in 4 Finishes
Product Ref: 52014From £9.62 inc VAT
This is a fixed downlight that provides 90 minutes fire protection. In modern buildings, the approved document B3 Internal fire spread (structure) dictates that the structure of the building should not collapse prematurely and should slow the spread of fire through the building and/or in unseen cavities and voids by providing fire resisting walls, ceiling and partitions where necessary. A ceiling is constructed in most domestic buildings with a single sheet (thickness) of plaster board. A single skin of plasterboard is fire rated at 30 minutes or less. Sheets of plasterboard are combined in thickness to increase the fire rating but often a fire resistant board is used to provide a greater protection.
Fire rated downlights have been offered for some years but the design of these has evolved rapidly and now users can choose recessed lights that offer style and fire protection. This is one of the most advanced fixtures available for use in domestic and commercial projects.
The design principals
Of course it incorporates the normal design requirements of a full steel body with die cast aluminium head fully tested for 90 minute fire rated surfaces and an integrated intumescent material which seals the downlight and cut-out in the event of a fire. But it provides more:
The alloy bezel is offered in four finishes.
The terminal block has a pull ring on the cable clamp, providing fast access. It also uses loop-in, loop-out push fit terminals making it easy and fast to wire with twin and earth cable.
The fixture offers great on-site flexibility as the downlight can be wired, installed and operated without the bezel. This means the ceiling can be painted with the lights in place and the bezel installed afterwards ensuring they stay clean and free from drops of emulsion paint!
Can be used with any GU10 base lamp, halogen, LED or compact fluorescent up to 60mm in length.
