Product Test: The All LED Atom downlight

Steve Hewish, Approved Electrician at Turrell (Electrical Contractors), reviews the All LED Atom downlight.

They say that good things come in small packages, and this little gem from the lighting portfolio of Bedfordshire-based All LED is no exception to the rule. The Atom downlight is an extremely versatile unit that offers a range of impressive features.

Firstly, the slim, low-profile bezel with 58 – 75 mm cut-out is perfect for retrofit or new installations, meaning the installer doesn’t have to enlarge holes, which we all know can be a pain. The stylish aesthetic ensures that the Atom can blend nicely into any ceiling with a generous 91 mm overall, helping cover any chipped edges or old spotlight stains.

Incorporating an easily accessible CCT selectable switch by just slightly pulling down the fixture from the ceiling (without removing it), the end user has the option to cycle between 3000K, 4000K, 6000K colour temperatures with just the flick of a button. This technology also means you can buy in bulk for multiple installations then simply change the colour temperature, depending on the room you’re installing them in.

It’s available in multiple finishes such as Polished Chrome, Carbon Black, Satin Nickel and Polar White, as well as straight and tilt versions. The adjustable version can be tilted to a maximum of 20 ̊, which provides the flexibility to direct the light in the place you need it the most. The Atom also has lots of different accessories, such as converter plates, multiple plates and plaster in trimless kits.

Optimal light distribution assured

The Atom features All LED’s proprietary DiamondTec lens technology, ensuring optimal light distribution as well as looking fantastic. It is also fully insulation coverable for added convenience.

This means that when working in new/modern houses, or on projects where the individual is re-insulating their property, you no longer have to remove sections of insulation or install large intumescent covers, minimising costs on the job further.

Rated at IP65 in both fixed and adjustable models proves the Atom’s durability and suitability for both indoor and outdoor applications such as soffits, and I’ve found the Atom to be perfect for use in bathrooms and wet rooms.

It comes dimmable as standard and features All LED’s OptiDim dimming technology that delivers smooth dimming control with almost any dimmer, even at very low brightness.

With fire ratings of 30, 60, and 90 minutes for timber joists, Staircraft I-joists, and metal web joists, it ensures compliance with fire safety regulations. It’s also compliant with moisture, acoustic and air leakage standards.

Loop-in loop-out piano key push terminals make life much easier for the installer, and the 72 mm depth is ideal for tight ceiling voids or where pipework might be run due to its ultra compact size. With a rated lifespan of 40,000 hours, plus a five-year guarantee, the Atom is a cracking, versatile solution that is suitable for various lighting projects.
