Q) Can I lay insulation directly over these downlights?
A) Yes insulation can be laid directly on top of this range of downlights. As long as you're using GU10 LEDs (not halogen) you can lay insulation directly on top without needing any other accessories. This allows your downlight installation to be more energy efficient as it prevents the need to cut around it. This stops heat from escaping from the room below.
Q) Are these downlights supplied with the bezel?
A) Yes the bezel is included in the price on our website. When you select your desired finish, you get 2 items together, the downlight can and the bezel. The bezel twists into the can. The same can is used for the fixed and bathroom IP65 downlights, the bezels are different.
Q) Which lamps are suitable?
A) As long as you select 'perfect fit' sized lamps they will fit. These lamps are around 55mm in height and are designed as halogen replacements. Longer LEDs such as the original Philips Philips Hue won't fit as they're 80mm in height and are too deep. The Aurora 5W can be added from the product options. It offers a low energy alternative to a 50W halogen and comes with a wide 60 degree beam angle which helps to distribute light more evenly, allowing you to position your downlights further apart and install less of them.
Specifications & Dimensions

Recessed downlights are available in different types such as fixed, adjustable and bathroom (IP65).
Fixed downlights shine the light directly downards. Adjustable downlights allow you to redirect the angle of light onto a specific object or area.
IP65 downlights are water resistant and suitable for use in bathroom zones 1 & 2. Most integrated LED downlights are IP65 rated as standard. This means they can be used anywhere including kitchens and living rooms etc.
Fixed GU10 downlights don't offer any resistance to water, their IP rating is usually IP20. They have no seal and cost less.
Finish Fire Rated Yes Insulation CoverableSpecifications
In order to achieve Part L Compliance (energy efficiency) you shouldn't cut around thermal insulation. If you do this your home or building won't be energy efficient as valuable heat will escape through the hole of the downlight.
A downlight can act like a chimney and draw out warm, rising air from a room, up into the cold space above. The effect is increased in upper floors containing lofts.Insulation coverable downlights allow you to place thermal insulation directly on top of them.More information about insulation coverable downlights.
Yes Lighting Technology LED Optional LampsSpecifications
Choose between a selection of our most popular GU10 LEDs, or order the downlights on their own. A larger selection of GU10 LEDs can be found here.Here is a brief description of the main 3 colour temperatures:
More information including images can be found here.
- 2700K - Extra Warm White
Similar to a traditional light bulb or halogen. Not all LEDs are available in this colour temperature. This is often referred to as ‘soft white’ and is ideal for living rooms, or areas of relaxation.
- 3000K - Warm White
Clearer lighting tone but still quite warm. This is the ‘new norm’ for general lighting and is the most popular option. If you’re unsure and want something less orangey than 2700K and not as harsh as 4000K, then try this.
- 4000K - Cool White
A clearer colour tone, popular in commercial locations as well as bathrooms & kitchens. Cool white appears brighter than warm white as the LED is covered in less phosphor. It can make a room appear cold and clinical but used in a modern setting, it can make a room feel modern and brighter.
Product TypeSpecifications GU10 Downlight Sku EFDPRO* VoltageSpecifications
AC standards for alternating current and DC standards for direct current.
Mains voltage is 230V AC and has a tolerance of 10%, some products are 220V or 240V AC which means they can be classed as mains voltage.
DC voltages usually require an LED driver to convert the mains voltage AC into low voltage DC. Popular DC voltages are 12V or 24V DC.
230V AC WarrantySpecifications 5 Years
- Tilts by: 30 degrees
IP65 Bathroom (same size as the fixed IP20 version)
- 2700K - Extra Warm White

I want to order a white fixed type but the selection options seem to default to chrome finish if I select a fixed type. Thank you for your assistance.Question by: Andrew Coulson on 19 Aug 2022, 13:14The fixed slim is the new bezel style that looks better. The fixed is the original version that's being phased out.
We're clearing the satin nickel and chrome stocks before introducing the fixed slim in these finishes.
The matt white fixed has now been sold out.Answer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 19 Aug 2022, 13:47Can these be covered by 300mm loft insulation?

We were just running fixed and fixed slim side by side while we cleared our sold stock.Answer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 27 Nov 2022, 12:54Would these fittings be suitable with a smart GU10 bulb baring in mind they are metal? Or would it hinder the signal?Question by: Sophie on 26 Jan 2023, 22:18Yes, these are suitable for use with smart LED GU10s. The downlight sides have ventilation gaps which will allow the signal to pass through. Although this has never been an issue with other styles of GU10 downlights as the signal can go through solid walls.Answer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 27 Jan 2023, 05:06Hello is it possible to use RGB gu10 bulbs with these down lights?
