Fire Rated ( 90 Minutes ) Downlighters
Fire compliant recessed downlighters have been designed
to meet the stringent legal requirements of the Building Regulations Parts B&E.
The recent addition of Part E to the Building Regulations has presented the House Builder with
the problem of how to maintain acoustic integrity yet allow the installation of downlighters,
which by their very nature, must puncture the ceiling lining, which affords acoustic integrity.
The design provides a sealed barrier between the underside of the ceiling and its associated void area.
This clever design also incorporates intumescent materials which ensure the luminaire can withstand the onslaught of fire in accordance with the requirements of Part B of the Building regulations.
Thus from one simple to install luminaire the both regulations can be complied with, negating the need for separate fire hoods or a segregated ceiling void as requested by The Standard Robust Details.
