Astroflame-Recessed downlights are a common feature in many homes, however they also represent a potential fire hazard, especially if buried in loft insulation. Numerous house fires have been caused by the ignition of combustibles in ceiling spaces caused by hot downlights being covered with insulation. In addition, the thermal performance of a ceiling is typically reduced by 50% when penetrated by multiple downlights due to heat loss through the gaps made in the insulation. Using an Astro Loft Cone restores the air tightness of the ceiling and ensures continuity of insulation so that the overall performance is similar to that of a ceiling without downlights. The Astro Loft Cone meets the latest needs of BS EN 60598 and other international standards for a lighting product
Tested for 50 Watt lamps.
Thermal test BS EN 60598 Section 12.4 and BS 476 Part 20.
