In any building a ceiling helps slow the spread of fire and when a hole is cut into a ceiling this creates a potential path for fire to spread. A fire rated recessed light (downlight) is a product that restores the fire integrity of a ceiling once the hole has been cut for the light. A fire rated downlight needs to withstand a fire resistance test that replicates the behaviour fire.
The sealing effect this material creates restores the ceiling;s fire-rated status and gives people in the floors above the opportunity to safely evacuate the building before the fire spreads upwards.
The fire-rating of a downlight must, therefore, match that of the ceiling it is installed into. Our fire-rated downlights have a protective fire-rating which gives people an extra 90 minutes to evacuate a building in the event of a fire.
So, if you’re thinking about installing some recessed ceiling lights, keep yourself and your family safe by opting for our fabulous fire-rated downlights. Safe and stylish, they won’t let you down!
