Slender White Bezel
Not a fan of bulky lighting units? If that’s the case, you’ll be happy to see this LED downlight! It has a slender bezel, so it will not stick out when installed. In addition, since it has a white finish, it will camouflage completely against your white ceilings!
If you’re someone who likes to constantly change the styling of your interior, you’ll benefit from the simplicity of this downlight. Sometimes, it is hard to change the design of your space if your ceiling lights only complement a particular theme. However, since this downlight is minimalistic and neutral, you’ll be able to unleash your creativity and decorate your home as you prefer!
Insulation Coverable When Paired With a LED Lamp (Max 7w Power)
Be careful when covering your lighting fixtures with insulation. Not all will advise you to do so; therefore, unless it's clearly indicated, never put insulation over your lights. Instead of increasing the protection of your home, it may put it at risk!
Since this LED downlight is insulation coverable, it's safe even if you place insulation over the fittings. That is, as long as the LED lamps have a maximum of 7w power. If it goes higher than that, then it's not possible to add a layer of insulation, but you can still use a bulb rated higher than 7w in this downlight, just please ensure that you don't cover the rear with insulation.
Easy to Install - Loop In and Out Quick Connectors
Installation does not always have to be complicated and time-consuming. Sometimes, you just need to find the right fittings to help you speed up the process - like our fire-rated downlight that electricians love! With this fixture, you’ll be surprised how quickly you can finish and move on to the following stages of your build.
This LED downlight is designed with screwless terminals and large connectors for easy loop-in and out connection. Now, you don't need to fiddle around with screws, lessening the time you spend on wiring. Aside from that, it’s mains powered; therefore, you don’t need to purchase a separate transformer to make it work, reducing the steps that you need to go through. Now, all you need to do to connect the fixture directly to the mains, add a bulb, and you’re good to go!
Fire Rated to 90 Minutes, Ideal for Solid Joist & I-Joist Ceilings
What is the difference between a regular downlight and a fire-rated downlight? When you cut a hole in your ceiling to mount your recessed lights, its fire integrity weakens. A standard fitting +cannot fully reseal the gaps even if you fill them with a lighting fixture. However, a fire-rated downlight can - like this Fire-Rated GU10 Downlight!
It’s fire-rated to 90 minutes of protection, meaning the hole that you cut is fully resealed (thanks to its intumescent pad), and your ceiling is reinforced to extend the time when the fire will spread. In addition, this fire-rated downlight is ideal for solid-joist and I-joist ceilings, giving your home ample fire security!
Works with a GU10 Bulb
This LED downlight is designed with a GU10 holder. You can use it with any GU10 bulb, but since it’s dimmable, it’s preferable to pair it with a dimmable GU10 bulb and a compatible dimmer switch. This way, you’ll be able to utilise its dimming function and make the ambience of your space ten times better!
Regarding the GU10 bulbs, you can get them in three colours: cool, natural and warm white light. Cool white and natural white light are both used for task lighting. Their only difference is cool white has a crips bluish tone while natural white does not have any hints of blue or yellow. On the other hand, warm white light is suitable for ambient lighting because its yellowish hue can make the atmosphere cosy and relaxing.
Recessed lighting installations are very sensitive to measurements. You can’t just eyeball it and expect everything to perfectly fall into place. There are many factors to consider, like the ceiling void and the cut-out hole. If you don’t measure accurately, your lights may protrude from your ceiling or fall off!
So, remember, this LED downlight is 112mm tall and 85mm in diameter. It requires a 70mm cut-out hole, so ensure that you measure and cut this precisely to guarantee that your downlights will sit flawlessly on the surface. Also, before trimming, don’t forget to mark and measure first. You can easily clean the markings, but it takes time to patch a hole!
