Mains Voltage Downlights - Fixed
For use in many applications, choose from a variety below in different finishes and styles. A recessed light or downlight is a light fixture that is installed into a hollow opening in a ceiling. When installed it appears to have light shining from a hole in the ceiling, concentrating the light in a downward direction as a broad floodlight or narrow spotlight. Downlights are now fitted in the majority of new builds or updated properties. There are two parts to downlights, the trim and housing. The trim is the visible portion of the light. It is the insert that is seen when looking up into the fixture, and also includes the thin lining around the edge of the light. The housing is the fixture itself that is installed inside the ceiling and contains the lamp holder. Many may believe that downlights are a relatively new light fitting but they were first developed in the early 1940s.
