Paviom develops new approach to fire-rated downlights

Paviom, Fire rated downlights

Paviom’s latest range of fire-rated downlights incorporates the patented Utekton system to seal the sealing aperture in the event of a fire and eliminate the need for a separate fire hood in a fire-rated ceiling. They are available with one or two lamps and have BRE fire ratings of 30, 60 and 90 minutes. They are easily fixed using the ceiling clamp system.

These lamps are said to offer an effective alternative to intumescent strips to seal openings.

The Utekton system used a spring-shut fire seal system that includes a sealing plate and sacrificial spacer. Under normal conditions, the sacrificial spacer provides a platform for a sealing plate to sit on, keeping ventilation holes clear so the lamp can delivers its optimum performance.

In the event of a fire, the sacrificial spacer melts, allowing the sealing plate to drop down and block the ventilation holes to prevent the spread of fire.

This range of fire-rated downlights is available in three sizes with 13 and 32 W lamp options, including a twin horizontal version. There is also an 8 W PAR20 LED reflector-lamp version.
