fire rated downlights in a kitchen setting

There are different types of downlights available at LED Direct. When considering the wide range of options available, one of the first queries that comes to mind might be if you need fire rated downlights. We have everything you need to know about fire rated downlights and how they could improve the safety of your household.

What is a fire rated downlight?

This lighting product is a recessed light used to protect ceilings from a fire hazard after a hole has been cut into the ceiling to hold a new light. The hole cut for recessed downlights sometimes compromise the ceiling’s fire resistance, making your household more vulnerable to fires. Whilst plasterboard ceilings reduce fire risks, this risk is increased when a hole is made because fire will be able to move more easily through this space. Fire rated downlight regulations have been put in place to protect buildings from fire hazards. For example, these particular lights seal the hole that has been drilled into the ceiling, therefore stopping the fire moving as quickly as it would’ve done otherwise. Most of these products also come with intumescent pads that are triggered to swell up at certain temperatures. This blocks the fire to slow it down. What consumers must note is that fire rated downlights don’t block the fire completely, but the delay it causes is crucial for safety, allowing household members to depart from the building and saving their lives.

Therefore, with fire hazards sometimes causing devastation in certain situations, you should be on the look out for fire rated downlights in order to enhance the safety of yourself, your loved ones, and your property. Luckily, LED Direct has a range of products in this area, so let’s take a look at a few of them.
