Sometimes you really do not want to re-plaster a ceiling just to be shot of your old downlights! If you have old fashioned recessed spots or mains recessed eyeball lights with mains reflector lamps you may want to consider using these retrofit downlights. If you like the soft light you get with old style reflector lamps just swap your old lights for brand new R50, R63 or R80 fixtures in white, polished chrome or polished brass. In stock, in our UK warehouse and we have the bulbs too!
The 150mm bezel on the converter downlight will easily cover a hole of up to 120mm diameter and can be used with larger holes if assisted with a little Gripfill (the master of all building adhesives). The cut out diameter makes this product suitable for replacement of most R63 and some R80 downlights. The massive R80 eyeballs are however very big so please ensure you look closely before placing your order. If you are replacing a mains reflector lamp we suggest that you use the low voltage pack. This is supplied with a wide beam lamp (60 degrees) which will give the closest distribution to a R63/R80 reflector lamp. You can use the GU10 version but with a lower light output (than the low voltage lamp) and a narrower distribution you may be disappointed with the results.
