Aurora Fire Rated Downlights: How are they Tested and How do they Work?

Some of the best fire-rated downlights, tested and approved according to the highest UK standards, are those manufactured by Aurora Lighting. Recently they have posted a blog post concerning the requirements, the specifications, and the testing of their fire-rated lights, and we deem it necessary to glean bits and pieces of very useful information for you, our customer and visitor. Stay tuned as you read the article: the best bits are at the end! Why do we Need Fire Rated Downlights? First of all, why do we need to install fire-rated downlights? The Building Regulations in the UK require fire protection for certain types of premises. You can check out Document B (fire safety, approved document, see it online here), where we see that residential homes, flats, sheltered housings, health care premises, schools, universities, student accommodations, shops, assembly and recreational buildings, etc all need to have fire protection recessed lights. Depending on the building construction, most ceilings in houses with more than one floor needs to have fire-rated lights. What's so Special about Fire Rated Lights? So, what do the fire-rated downlights do? If there's a fire on a certain level of a building, the principle of the fire-rated downlights is that they don't allow the spreading of the fire to the floors or spaces above. This means that the downlights have a special construction that blocks the spreading of the fire and, instead of weakening the fire protection of the ceiling, it "fills the hole" in the ceiling to protect the space above. Read more about the fire-rated downlights here. What Fire-Rated Downlight Do I Need? There are different types of fire-rated downlights, and there are different requirements for the various types of buildings and types of construction. The basement for instance, if it is residential, needs a 30-60 minutes fire rating, while the basement in a flat or any other residential building needs 90 minutes fire protection. When it comes to the ground level and above, depending on the height of the floor, in general in the residential buildings you need 60 minutes fire rated downlights, and in flats and other residential buildings you sometimes need a fire protection for up to 120 minutes. Check out the diagram supplied by Aurora above to find out more precise details. How do these Fittings Work and How are They Tested? The fire-rated downlights contain a special intumescent material which, in case of fire and extreme heat, expands and enlarges until it bridges the downlight can's ventilation hole. The maintaining of the fire resistance of the ceiling is integral when the intumescent material expands and blocks the expansion of the fire on the floor/space above the ceiling. In a nutshell, see below a picture describing this process. How does Aurora Lighting test their fire-rated downlights? Check out the picture supplied by them below and see a little about the process of testing: the test furnace, inside the furnace, the ceiling construction, the installation, board the ceiling, begin the testing, test monitoring, the success of the test, and the final results - PASS! In conclusion, a big thank you to the good people at Aurora Lighting for their explanations, and don't forget to visit the fire rated ceiling lights section on our website at to see a complete range of fire protection downlights from Aurora.

Downlights: FAQ and Electrical Safety on Installing / Checking Downlights

Downlights are a lovely way to brighten up your home. They are often small and recessed, making them convenient to place in any part of your home that you feel is a little too dim. However, poorly installed downlights are the cause of a substantial number of fires in homes every year. The rise in popularity of LED lights has led to many people attempting to replace their old recessed ceiling lights themselves. DIY can always be risky, especially when you are handling electronics. Sparks advises you seek the help of a registered electrician to do this particular job. In this article, Sparks will take you through how to safely replace downlights and achieve bright energy-efficient lighting anywhere across your home. What is a downlight, and what are the different kinds? Downlights are a type of recessed luminaire. They are installed in hollow openings, usually in ceilings, as they cast their light downwards. Having a light fixture installed in a hollow recess makes the light appear to be part of the ceiling itself. This is opposed to suspended or wall lights which will hang down, or stay separate from the ceiling. Downlights operate at mains voltage (230 Volts) or are powered by a transformer at low voltage (12 Volts). These low-voltage lights are often given the acronym Extra-Low Voltage (ELV) or Safety Extra-Low Voltage (SELV). At Sparks, we have a wide range of low-voltage downlights, many of which also have a high IP rating for mounting in the bathroom or shower. ‘Fire rated’ (FR) downlights have built-in fire protection that seals the downlight if a fire breaks out in the room below. This will stop - or hinder - the spread of fire and smoke into other areas. The trusted Electrical Safety First (ESF) recommends the use of Fire Rated downlights, for any installation. They also advise that they are fitted with aluminum reflector lamps to ensure fire and excessive heat is kept out of any gaps.Buy Fixed Downlights at Sparks Questions you may have about Fire-Rated downlights This Fire Rated Void Round 80 LED Downlight can be purchased from this list here.What’s the purpose of a fire-rated downlight?The purpose of a Fire Rated downlight is to ensure that there are no weak spots in your ceiling. This ensures that the integrity of the structure of a building is maintained in all areas.When and where should FR downlights be fitted?They are most often fitted by designers in avenues of escape, for instance, hallways. Fire Rated downlights must always match the fire rating standard of the structure they are fitted on to. The rare exception is with false ceilings i.e. in open plan offices.How is downlight quality and effectiveness tested?A responsible manufacturer will seek to have their products constructed to meet certain test criteria, and pass very stringent live fire tests. These tests are set by the British Standards Organisation or their equivalent European tests, and they must receive a ‘pass’ certificate.Astro Lighting Void Round DownlightsThinking of installing new downlights? Here are some Safety Tips Sparks would encourage you to use a registered electrician to install your downlighters. You should keep the manufacturer's instructions for your new downlights in a safe place for future reference. Here is a brief list of other steps to follow when installing downlights: Thoroughly read and follow the manufacturer's instructions. Always ensure your mains-powered electricity is switched off before changing the lamp. Look at the packaging and the downlighter for details of the correct replacement lamps. Do not exceed the maximum number of wattage allowed. Don't fit a cool beam (or ‘dichroic’) reflector lamp unless the downlight is specifically designed for use with that lamp type. If in any doubt, just fit them with standard aluminium reflector lamps. Check to see that the lamp holder is not damaged, scorched, or corroded. If it is, then do not fit the lamp and seek help from a registered electrician. Checking your existing downlights: Safety tips If you just want to check that the downlights you are currently using are safe, you can take the following steps: Look for visible markings on downlights which indicate lamp wattage and lamp type. Check the recessed ceiling lights and their surroundings for signs of discoloration or scorching caused by overheating. Make sure that downlights installed in floor and ceiling cavities have enough space around them. Ensure that downlights are not in close proximity of loft insulation or other combustible materials. Check that your downlights are not placed near furniture, curtains or similar flammable items. Make sure you haven’t fitted ‘dichroic’ lamps in lamp holders designed for use with aluminum reflector lamps. If you have, then replace them with the correct type. We hope this guide has given you comprehensive information on how to safely handle your downlights. This applies to instances where you are replacing them, or simply checking that the ones you have installed are safe.
