Here at Downlights.co.uk we sell fantastic lighting solutions for homes and businesses, and you can find out all the information you need about these lights, including whether they are fire rated downlights or non-fire rated.

What is the Difference?

When choosing downlights it is important to know whether you want fire rated downlights or non-fire rated. Fire rated downlights are used widely to restore a ceiling’s fire integrity. This is linked to the fact that cutting a hole in a ceiling for a light can cause a fire hazard. Such a hole can allow fire to pass through it, meaning a fire could spread further than if no such holes existed. Fire rated downlights take this potential hazard into consideration and they seal the hole to prevent and slow the spread of fire.

So of course, non-fire rated downlights are those that don’t create such a seal, and which are thus potentially more dangerous if a fire was to occur. Fire rated lights would slow the burning of a building and give inhabitants more time to escape, which could be vital.
