It’s a safe option too, as it is fire rated. It’s made from intumescent material that expands when exposed to heat. This makes the cutting hole in your ceiling air tight in the event of a fire, and helps prevent it spreading between floors.
This protection lasts up to 90 minutes, which is more than enough for you to evacuate your premises and call emergency services.
It’s So Versatile!
The narrow 60o beam angle means the 9W downlight is perfect for feature and accent lighting, and is even dimmable as standard too. You will need a trailing edge dimmer to use dimmable LEDs though, as leading edge dimmers may not work and could even damage the bulbs.
The versatility comes in through a couple of neat features. The first is IP65 rating. What this means is that the fire rated downlight is completely dust proof, and can withstand light jets of water from any direction. In the real world, it means that it is safe to use in areas with high concentrations of water – like the kitchen or bathroom for example.
The other is the choice of what kind of colour temperature you would like. You can pick from warm white (3000K) or cool white (6000K).
Warm white is nearly identical to the shade given off by conventional halogens, and is great for the living room or bedroom. Cool white is a lot icier and brighter though, making it better suited for areas like the kitchen or office.
Whilst our featured dimmable downlight comes in an attractive satin chrome finish, it might not suit all types of interiors. If you’re looking for a slightly different colour scheme, we’ve also got the same downlight available in black, polished chrome and white.
Be sure to have a browse through all our fitted LED downlights, as we have a wide selection of different wattages and brightness’s across our range.
Buying 5 or more CREE 9W downlights gets you a special volume discount too – which is handy if you’re looking to use this downlight in multiple locations throughout the house or shop.
After this, LEDs will continue to save you money because of how energy efficient they are. They only lose 10% of their energy to heat wastage, whereas traditional incandescent bulbs lose up to 80% to heat – which is why they get so hot when they’re on.
The resultant cooler operating temperatures of LEDs mean that they suffer less wear and tear – thus explaining why they have such long lifespans.
This lets you keep extra money on your pocket as you won’t have to buy as many replacement lights. Across this single downlight’s 50,000 hour lifespan, you would buy 2 fluorescent bulbs and 20 halogen bulbs!
The other way this saves you money is on your electricity bills, as LEDs use far less energy than other methods of lighting.
installed one week ago, very pleased with these excellent downlights.
A well built product, bezel is easy to interchange. 53mm cut-out would be fairly tight for this down-light, I used a 54mm cut-out and the light just made it through the aperture.
The intumescent seal on the fire-rated light takes a bit of force to get the light flush with the ceiling.
As an installer I would recommend the product for its quality, its reliability won't be known for sometime with a bit of luck....
Replaced all the lights in my kitchen and loved it. Great team and great products.
Bought 14 of these - all worked out of the box. Quality of finish very good. Having only had experience of \'bulb\' type LED lights I have been amazed how bright they are and what a good warm white they give. I could have lit my kitchen with fewer units and will definitely need to wire up the dimmer I have bought.\\n\\n.
