Select Between Cool White (6000K) or Warm White (3000K)
This short-can LED downlight is available in cool white or warm white light. If you don’t know what each colour looks like, here’s a simple guide!
Cool white light (6000K) has a crisp bluish shade and is ideal for task lighting. It has a stunning brilliance that can boost an individual’s focus and enhance the functionality of a space. Cool white is perfect to use in task-heavy areas like the kitchen and the home office. On the other hand, warm white light (3000K) has a yellowish tint and is suitable for ambient lighting as it can create a cosy and relaxing atmosphere! You can use this colour temperature in rooms where you rest, like the living room and bedroom.
Low Glare! Recessed Diffuser
Thanks to its recessed diffuser, this short-can LED downlight is able to reduce glare without compromising the brightness and beam angle being produced! Because of this, you can use your lights comfortably without squinting wherever it’s on!
Besides that, this LED downlight is highly energy-efficient because it only requires minimal energy to make a significant amount of luminance. At only 8w of power, this lighting fixture can produce 800 lumens maximum brightness with a wide 90-degree beam angle! No non-LED fitting can come close to this level of efficiency. So, if you are deciding which lighting solution to get, this LED downlight is a reasonable choice with its many benefits!
IP65 Rated - Water Resistant
If you need a lighting fixture that you can install throughout your home, this short-can LED downlight is a good fit for your requirement. It's IP65 rated; therefore, it's water-resistant! You can put this lighting fixture in your living room, bedroom, dining room, kitchen, hallway, storage room, garage, and bathroom (including zone 1). Even if jets and splashes of water reach this downlight, it will not short-circuit or malfunction!
While this LED downlight has enough protection to fend off liquids, you cannot completely submerge it underwater. Its shield is not strong enough for that kind of application. If that's what you're after, you'll need a fixture with an even higher IP rating.
Easy to Install
Installation is the least of your problem with this LED downlight because it's made with everything that simplifies the process. It has screwless connectors, allowing you to do a simple loop-in/loop-out wiring and is mains powered, so you don’t have to purchase a separate driver or transformer to make it work!
You only need to plan and mark the positioning of your downlights, trim the cut-out hole and wire the lights to the mains circuit. Once you’re done cleaning, you can start enjoying your brilliantly light space! Just ensure that you prioritise your safety at all times. If you’re unsure what to do and is not confident doing the installation yourself, it’s best to call for an electrician!
While learning the mounting process is crucial, knowing the dimensions of your fixtures is also necessary. If you improvise and wing it, especially for recessed lighting like this LED downlight, there is a high possibility that something will go wrong. The hole that you cut may be too small for the downlight to fit or too big that it may fall off! There is also a chance that the fixture will protrude because you did not consider its height and the available ceiling void.
So, avoid all these hassles and take note that this LED downlight is only 39.5mm tall with an 85mm diameter and requires a 75mm cut-out hole!
Fire Rated Downlight
This short-can LED downlight is fire-rated, meaning it can completely reseal the hole that you can to mount your lights and delay the time when the fire will spread. With this, you and your family will have more time to escape, and the damage to your home’s property will not be that bad.
Only a fire-rated fixture can restore the fire integrity of a ceiling that’s been compromised because of the holes cut to install fixtures. It’s possible because a fire-rated downlight is made with an intumescent pad that activates when exposed to a particular temperature, allowing it to block even the tiniest crevices where the fire may slip through!
