Hello my ceiling lights need updating I have a cut out off 100mm diameter are these a good size for that also are these fire rated and do they need transformer?
What is the minimum void space allowed for this type of unit.?
Can these convertors be used outside in a covered porch?
Does this fitting come with the both connectors ie low voltage and 240v?
When using the mains option can I fit a 240 volt GU10 LED lamp
Will these be as bright as the R80 they replace and will the light `spread` in a similar way so we don`t get `dark areas` in the kitchen?
I need to replace 4 old downlighters that take r80 bulbs. They are currently on a dimmable switch. Can I leave the dimmer in place and do I need to fix transformers to each bulb?
I have a downlights with holes 120mm in diameter.
Are these lights self adjusting e.g. will they fit the hole without the need to do anything to resize the hole itself?
I have just purchased 9 converter 230v kits on the understanding that these were mains lights and did not need a transformer. The instruction say they need them, your page says they don`t.
I have a set of 8 recessed downlights in my kitchen and I want to fit the larger converter kit. I am using transformers with the 12v lights, can i just connect the kit to the transformer and use the 12v lights?
I have bought these lights and was also concerned about the lack of colour coding on the wires to differentiate between live and neutral and the connection I need to make to the existing wiring from my old ceiling lights - I'm using the mains version.
All our other downlighter IP20 fire rated fittings are contained within a metal back canister. Does this fitting have the same?
Can I just please confirm my understanding that the KITCR80WM will fit directly into the mains wiring from the present old fashioned mains downlights without any further parts being required?
Will these lights fit into a Victorian lathe and plaster ceiling with is thicker than the modern plaster board?
I have bought these lights ref no CONVERTER230VKIT , but from the instructions i dont know which fitting is for mains? Also both wires coming from the fittings dont have different colours i.e Blue or brown, so how do you determine which is live and which is neutral?
Is there a gap between the surround and the lamp ? We need a draft proof lamp as currently there is a gap between our existing tiltable lamp allowing cold air to blow down in the winter. I am presuming that if this light is not tiltable then it is a solid fitting
How do I know whether I need mains or 12v downlight converters for my kitchen? I`m looking to replace 4 old 6inch eyeball downlighters - they are just on the mains switch, with R80 bulbs.
I am told I need a mains 240v version. Is this light suitable?
Im needing to replace all my old downlights in my flat with a cut-out of 100mm and R80 bulbs. I know this would be suitable but should i stick to mains reflector lamps as its connected now or use a transformer low voltage lamp? Also i stay on the top floor of the complex i stay in so there is a ceiling void etc..how would this affect protection against fire?
We have a cut-out size of 175mm, is there anyway of converting this size??
Part of my ceiling is double thickness plasterboard (30mm). Would these units work to replace some old 140mm eyeball R80 downlighters?
I read the question and answer in regards to using this fitting in the bathroom, as this is not suitable do you supply or know of a whole converter that is suitable for use in a bathroom?
Is this fitting suitable for bathroom use (particually zone 2)?
My R80 mains downlights are installed in a single storey kitchen extension with a ventilated loft space above. Will these fittings do anything to reduce the icy blast coming in through the downlights in winter?
We have 4 of these to replace. Ideally I`d like to replace 3 with the above and one with a pendant light. I`ve seen on American sites a converter that allows you to do this. Why can I not find one of these in the UK? Is there a safety issue or something with this?
Are these held in by a wire grip around the lamp bulb?
Regarding this lamp, I have a cutout hole of 95-100mm. Will the spring clips that hold the light in still grill and work. Normally the spring clips work against the side/edge of the ceiling board.
We have holes that are 140mm wide for 7 existing R80 fittings and note that you have a slightly larger version of the downlighter converter. I would be most interested in seeing further details please.
How do I find out if I need to have fire-rated lighting? I need to replace my old style eyeball downlights that are in my lounge are obviously fitted between floors.
Do you need transformer with these lights?
