Aico AFF109/150 Firehood 150X150mm to suit Cut Out of 50-75mm [AFF109/150 AICO]If you make an opening in the ceiling of a fire separating element (usually wherever there is living space above) to install a recessed light fitting you must restore the ceiling's fire-stopping integrity. This is a requirement of both the Building Regulations and the IEE Wiring Regulations. Fitting a recessed downlight can also compromise a ceiling's acoustic properties, enabling sound to readily transmit through the floor above. Building Regulations now require you to maintain the ability of an internal floor to provide reasonable resistance to sound once downlights are fitted in the ceiling. Global assessment accreditation for common ceiling types and joist constructions Suitable for use with all commonly used lamp types For use with a wide range of mains and LV light fittings up to 270mm diameter Easy to install from above or below the ceiling without requiring an accurate hole Can be fitted in seconds - no screws, drilling or additional sealant required Self supporting, flexible and lightweight Tested and approved for use on both plasterboard and suspended ceilings Fully ventilated to avoid over-heating of the light fitting Reinstates acoustic protection of the ceiling - items tested have satisfied requirements of Building Regulations Document E under test conditions When exposed to fire the intumescent fibre swells to over three times its original thickness to provide a highly effective fire-stopping seal Keeps all combustible material away from the hot light fitting (all makes, styles and sizes) Provides a high level of additional heat insulation to the ceiling void during a fire thus reducing the chances of ignition of accumulated dust and flammable materials Specially formulated high performance outer coating improves durability and minimises thermal convection Conserves energy - reduces heat within the room from escaping through the light fitting Multiple cable entry points on the side and top for ease of installation Fibres used are exonerated from classification according to HSE guidelines Rot, corrosion and vermin resistant Maintenance free Light fitting can be removed without disturbing the Firecap
