FAQ

WHAT IS A FIXED LED DOWNLIGHTS?

 

Fixed LED downlights are stationary lighting fixtures that emit light in a downward direction without any adjustable movement. The extent of light dispersion is determined by the beam angle of the LED bulb housed inside. These downlights are an excellent choice for providing even illumination across an area, making them ideal for general-purpose lighting. It's important to note that fixed LED downlights cannot be repositioned or adjusted, as their light is specifically directed downwards.

 

CAN FIXED LED DOWNLIGHTS BE USED IN DAMP OR WET LOCATIONS?

 

Yes, fixed LED downlights can be used in damp or wet locations if you choose a model with a high IP rating. An IP rating refers to the Ingress Protection rating, which indicates the level of protection the fixture offers against the intrusion of solid objects and liquids. For damp or wet environments, it is recommended to select fixed LED downlights with IP54, IP65, or IP67 ratings. These ratings ensure that the downlights are designed to withstand moisture and can safely operate in areas where there may be humidity or water present.

 

DO FIXED LED DOWNLIGHTS OFFER GREATER SAFETY BENEFITS COMPARED TO HALOGEN DOWNLIGHTS?

 

Halogen downlights have been identified as a potential cause of house fires due to their high heat production. The heat generated by these lights and their transformers can easily ignite flammable substances such as paper, dust, and insulation batts, especially if the fittings are not properly installed. On the other hand, LED lights emit significantly less heat compared to halogen bulbs, reducing the risk of burns or fire incidents when in contact with materials.

 

Upgrading to LED downlights is highly recommended to eliminate the fire hazard associated with halogen lights. Multiple government bodies, regulatory agencies, and safety organizations across Australia have issued warnings regarding the use of halogen downlights due to their extremely high operating temperatures, reaching up to 250°C. Other sources indicate operating temperatures as high as 370°C to 500°C, which is dangerously close to the ignition point of certain types of timber.
