Low glare LED downlight from Collingwood Lighting that is available in a choice of colour temperatures beam styles and finishes. The H5 has a diffused reflector inside the downlight reduces glare and offers less of a dazzling effect on the eyes. Ideal for use in both commercial or domestic environments including living rooms bathrooms and bedrooms.
Available in two beam styles symmetric or asymmetric. The symmetric version shines the light directly down like a fixed downlight and the asymmetric version shines the light at an angle. This can be used as a wall wash style downlight for illuminating pictures or certain ares of a room. Lighting designers regularly specify a mixture of both symmetric and asymmetric versions in the same room with symmetric providing ambient lighting and asymmetric for display.

Q1.What is the difference between asymmetric and symmetric?
A1. Symmetric downlights are just like ordinary fixed downlights they shine the light directly down like this:
Asymmetric downlights shine the light at an angle they are still fixed but the LED chip and reflector inside the downlight are positioned at an angle like this:
Asymmetric can be used effectively as wall wash downlights. They work similarly to adjustable downlights but are permanently adjusted.
Specifications Beam AngleSpecifications
Every light source from an LED to a simple wax candle has a beam angle. A beam angle is a measurement of how the light is distributed. GU10 LEDs and recessed downlights have a fairly narrow beam of around 40 degrees, anything within 5 degrees is classed as a medium beam.
A wax candle or traditional light bulb would have a beam angle of 360 degrees as the light shines all the way around but is less intense.
Combing brighter downlights with wider 60 degree beams allows you to space them out further, reducing the total amount of lights needed.

Brand Collingwood Lighting Cap Type Integrated LED Colour TemperatureSpecifications
Colour temperature is a measurement of appearance. Measured in Kelvins, the lower the rating, the warmer the light appears. Choosing the right temperature can have a dramatic effect on a room.
2700K - Extra Warm White
Similar to a traditional incandescent light bulb or halogen. It has a more orange and warmer tone, with a ‘soft white’ appearance. Ideal for living rooms.
3000K - Warm White
Clearer, but still quite warm. This is the ‘new norm’ for general lighting and is the most popular option. If you’re unsure I’d recommend trying this one.
4000K - Cool White
Clearer, whiter and crisp; used in commercial locations including supermarkets. 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 correctly (white walls etc) it can make a room appear cleaner and modern.

Dimmable Yes 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.
