The fire rating of a building indicates just how well its ceiling is able to slow the spread of a fire. Ceilings are particularly important barriers as they curtail the progress of a fire throughout a building.
However, when we create holes in our ceilings in which to install recessed downlights, it reduces its fire-retardant ability, allowing oxygen through which feeds the flames.
Ultimately, this jeopardises the fire rating of the ceiling. So, in many cases a fire rated downlight is the best and only way to go! This is where our fire rated LED lights come in handy!
Our fire rated accessory for our downlight family uses an intumescent layer that expands when it reaches a certain temperature and helps block the spread of fire. Maintaining this barrier allows occupants more time to escape the building and for the fire to be extinguished.
