Astroflame -Recessed luminaires or modular light fittings are widely used in commercial buildings. Each ceiling is subject to fire regulations and where applicable the ceiling construction needs to be fire rated. When a ceiling tile is replaced by a recessed luminaire, the integrity of the ceiling’s construction and its ability to perform in a fire are reduced significantly. To combat this Astroflame, as part of its continuing development of passive fire protection solutions, has developed a Recessed Luminaire Cover or use in 30 and 60 minute fire rated ceilings.
The Luminaire cover has been developed to provide maximum protection for ceilings where fire resistant tiles have been replaced by light fittings. The cover has been designed to allow for ease of fitting. It is self locating and cannot be fitted incorrectly. The cover also gives additional insulation protection to the ceiling void reducing the chance of ignition of accumulated dust and insulation. The cover is unaffected by moisture and is non toxic. With the cover in place, the modular light fitting can be installed as normal.
