Product Test: Luceco’s FType Compact Fire Rated Downlights

Jeff Jones of The Technical Department sheds some light on Luceco’s FType Compact LED Fire Rated Downlights.

Having had them in my possession for a while, I finally got around to fitting a few of the Luceco FType Compact fire rated downlights recently. What a fantastic product this is!

The range uses the latest Samsung chips which offer 100 lumens per watt output, are 30-60-90 minute fire rated and Parts L, C and E compliant. New features to this upgraded range include a more compact height, NHBC Certified for I-JOIST applications and new 4W versions that are Part L exempt.

The product is easy to fit and utilises solid sprung clips to hold the unit in place. The loop in/loop out NEL-NEL terminals feature a push-in connector block, which is a huge improvement over screw down terminals and there is adequate space for supply and feed cable into the integrated Power Supply Unit (PSU).

Dim2Warm and Colour Changing versions are also available, which provide varying lighting colour temperature options to suit different environments. Rubber shrouds are supplied with the downlight to reduce installation damage to plasterboard around the fitting aperture.

One feature I really love is the removable bezel for decorating and/or changing the style without changing the whole light – a great bit of kit!!
