Fire Rated Downlights

Many people aren’t actually sure what the term “fire rated” means and how it should affect their choice when it comes to buying a downlight so Juice we’re here to help you understand.

In the unfortunate event of a fire, any ceiling is design to help delay the flames from spreading. Depending on its ability to slow fire every ceiling has a fire rating. However, often without realising it, when we install recessed downlighting into our ceilings we reduce its fire rating. The hole necessary to be cut in the ceiling to fit your light means that during a fire, flames would be able to spread more easily and the ceiling would be likely to collapse in mere minutes.

To avoid the fire rating of your ceiling being reduced, fire rated downlights include materials that are designed to expand when heated and so seal the hole. This means that if a fire were to occur, any person in the building would have time to evacuate the building.

Choosing a fire rated downlight assists evacuation in the event of the fire, slows the spread of fire and reduces the risk of injury from falling debris. The Electric Safety Council suggests that fire rated designs be used in all buildings. A standard downlight without a fire rating may also be used, but if it is, a fire safety hood is recommended.

When looking for the right fire rating of a downlight for you, you must ensure that it matches the current fire rating of the ceiling in which it will be fitted. Doing this will help to maintain the building’s current fire safety levels. Fortunately, most modern downlights are tested against fire for up to 90 minutes which is a sufficient amount for the majority of ceilings.

At Juice, our fire rated downlights are available in a choice of 10 different colours, ensuring that you will always find one to suit your space.
