Cutting Hole (mm):
Fire Rated Downlight GU10 Tilt Polished Chrome - Diecast Description
Our GU10 downlights are good, top quality products as it is. Add massive safety benefits to that, and the result is our Fire Rated Tilt Enabled GU10 Downlight.
The polished chrome finish gives it a modern yet subdued exterior, over the solid diecast construction. The tilt functionality gives it some scope for how you want to use it.
A 90mm cutting hole is required for use, as is a recess depth of at least 133mm.
As our downlights all require holes to be cut in the ceiling, this compromises the integrity of the protection your ceiling would normally give you in the event of a fire.
In normal cases, there would be tiny gaps between the hole and the edge of the downlight, allowing heat and air to pass through.
Our fire rated downlights are made from intumescent material though – they swell up as they get hotter. This closes the gaps and makes your ceiling air tight again, preventing the spread of fires from floor to floor.
This protection will last up to 90 minutes – which is more than enough for you to safely evacuate your property and for emergency services to put out the blaze.
Generally speaking, fire rated products cost more than standard downlights. We feel however that the extra cost is justified, especially when the safety of you and your loved ones is called into question.
We have a wider range of GU10 downlights if your needs demand something different.
We Provide The Safety, But You Choose The Rest
When you buy this GU10 downlight, you have the option of having bulbs included in the package. With this, there are a couple of choices.
The first is whether you would like dimmable light or not. Obviously, this lets you choose different levels of brightness, but you should know that if you do want to go for dimmable bulbs, you’ll need a trailing edge dimmer. Conventional leading edge dimmers that are present in most households might not work with LEDs, and could even damage them too.
The other option you’ll have is what kind of colour temperature you want. There are 2 to pick from – warm white (3000K) and cool white (6000K).
The only difference between them is the perceived warmth of the light. Warm white is very close to traditional halogen bulbs and helps create a cosy setting. This is great for places like the living room or bedroom.
The Best Spotlights
Although you have the option of buying bulbs with your downlight, you may want to purchase them separately. Luckily, we’ve got a couple of recommendations from our wide range.
You should also consider our 6W Dimmable GU10 LED 27 SMD. It uses a little more power than the last bulb at 6W of energy, but also shines brighter with less SMDs – 450 lumens. The key feature with this item though is that it is dimmable. This will also require a trailing edge dimmer.
