Fire-rated downlight can be covered by insulation

Aurora, Fire-rated downlight

Aurora claims to have developed the first truly universal fire-rated downlight with complete capability for retrofitting all types of lamp. It can be directly covered with insulation and has been tested in ceilings with fire ratings of 30, 60 and 90 min. These downlights have LED optimisation for longer lamp life. The SOLA Universal comes fitted with GU10 and optional MR16 lampholders for 12/240 V halogen, CFL or LED lamps.

The patented insulation cover has enlarged ventilation slots for maximum heat dissipation and optimum ventilation. This cover allows the downlight to be directly covered with thermal-insulation material, including Celotex, without the need for an insulation guard.
