Fire Hood for Recessed Downlights
Use for Your Choice of Downlight
Product Ref: 1277From £8.30 inc VAT
Using a fire hood means that you can use a fitting of your choice (up to around 135mm in diameter) when installing recessed lights into a fire compartment. 60 minutes plus protection To fit from below roll up the hood and push through the downlight cut-out (don`t let go of the retaining tags!) Fix the retaining tags to the side of the cut-out with the supplied fixings.
Cut off the excess if any and then install your downlight.
To fit from above you can either use the retaining tags and screw down into the ceiling material or fix in place with a staple gun. Tips: For mains lamps pull the supply cable through the holes in the hood before pushing up into the ceiling.
For low voltage lamps locate the transformer in the ceiling and pull the secondary supply cable through the fire hood before locating in the ceiling void. Certified to British Standards for all types of ceiling. CE Marked.
This firehood is manufactured from fine woven silica fibre, similar to fibre glass. The fabric will not burn, and will melt only at temperatures exceeding 650 °C. The fibres are coated with Teflon to reduce its tendency to weaken or tear when manipulated, and to increase durability.
The ventilation holes are surrounded and protected by an intumescent material that expands and closes off the hole during a fire.

I've got some non-firerated 102mm round panel lights fitted. Are these hoods suitable?
My ceiling fittings are for R80 spot bulbs. Do I need the larger or the smaller hoods?
Hello, I bought several of these hoods last year and did not cover the fire hoods in my loft with insulation because of the overheating risk. Now my heating bills seem to have got much worse. Can I (a) put a support box over the hood then put insulation on top of that? or (b) if I just change all the bulbs from halogen to LED then surely the overheating risk is mostly gone and I can then put insulation over a box over the fire hood? Thanks!
I am about to install about 50 mains voltage dimmable LED downlighters, none more powerful than 9W. Am I right in assuming that fire hoods are unnecessary with this low output? The LED bodies are aluminium finned.
Hi, I have recessed downlights in my single story kitchen. During the winter months there is a terrible draught which comes through the lights. Would this be eradicated if I fitted the MLFR150 fire hoods?
I want to use the fire hoods in my loft to go over my halogen downlighters, before I insulate my loft. Do I have to disconnect my lights - what I mean is does the wire have to go through the side hole in the hood?
I have Robus RF201 downlights which have an overall diameter of 106mm and overal height of 135mm to the top of the electrical connection point. Would these 150 x 150 fire hoods be suitable?
Can I use this fire hood with your downlight converter - ref KITCR80W?
Do these firehoods comply with BS476:pt23
Can you tell me what part of the Building Regulations approved documents stipulates the requirement for fire hoods in a domestic house? Blowed if I can find it!!
