Safety is at the top of the agenda with our Fire Rated Chrome GU10 Short Can Downlight.
Built by industry leaders Mirrorstone, the versatile GU10 base gives it complete compatibility with our whole GU10 spotlight range.
The short can adds to the convenience, as it will still install into ceilings where the recess space is shallower than normal – requiring only 80mm of recess depth.
A relatively small 65mm cutting hole is the only other thing that is needed, slotting in neatly, leaving its 85mm diameter chrome finish behind on show for all to see.
The fairly neutral finish means it will look good in any interior colour scheme. The real draw of this GU10 downlight however is the fact that it is fire rated.
When installed, there will be tiny gaps between the cutting hole and the edge of the downlight. This allows heat and air to pass through in the event of a fire – giving as good as no protection.
This LED downlight is made from intumescent material – so it expands when exposed to heat. This closes up the gaps and makes your ceiling air tight. This protection lasts up to 90 minutes, which is more than enough time for you to get you and your loved ones out of your house.
Although fire rated fittings generally cost fractionally more than standard downlights, we feel the extra cost is justified purely on the safety benefits alone – as you cannot put a price on safety.
If chrome isn’t your favoured colour, we also have the same downlight available in satin chrome and white, giving you some aesthetic choices too.
The NeoTecline has been fully updated to deliver the absolute best that a downlight can be. With such a sturdy design, these fire rated materials have been streamlined to provide better fire protection, with a stylish appearance that looks great. The design has been revamped to include better heat dissipation, increasing the lifespan of your bulb.
The only difference is the perceived warmth of the light that is emitted, and is measured in Kelvins.Warm white is better for areas like the living area or bedroom, as it emits a shade very similar to conventional halogens that makes the place very welcoming and homely.
Cool white on the other hand is brighter and more penetrative. This is better for rooms where you need to concentrate like the kitchen or office.
You can of course buy your spotlights separately. We have a whole range of GU10 spotlights to choose from, but we do have a couple of recommendations for you too.
Chief among them are the money saving benefits. The immense lifespan means that you won’t have to buy replacements all the time.
They’re also really energy efficient, losing 10 times less energy to heat wastage compared to halogens. This means that you electricity bills come for less as they use less power than their incandescent counterparts.
That’s not the only way you could save money either – our discount codes page could save you up to 20% off selected items.

Really good quality light and 80mm depth fits nicely in roof space for upstairs landing lights.
