Fire rated downlights and spotlights are designed to minimise the spread of fire between floors. Ceilings act as a barrier to fire, but creating a hole in a ceiling for a downlight allows fire to spread quickly. A fire rated spotlight has a special strip attached to it which expands in very high temperatures, creating a seal and preventing the fire from spreading for up to 90 minutes. For your safety, we recommend using fire rated downlights for all rooms with living spaces above.
All fire rated downlights from Litecraft have been manufactured and tested to meet the highest safety regulations. Available in chrome, glass and steel finishes, our fire rated downlights are both practical and stylish. It is important that you select the correct fire rated spotlight for the right ceiling and ensure that it is installed by a professional.
