Ceiling Downlight Protection Guards
Ceiling down-light protection guards are recommended to help avoid ceiling fires and to improve the energy efficiency of down-lights. They are used to isolate the lights, and keep a gap between the bulb – which can become extremely hot – and any flammable materials that might be present in the ceiling cavity. There are many different options when it comes to ceiling down-light protection guards, which means there will definitely be something to fit your home and budget. However, it is crucial to make sure that the protection guards you choose meet the Australian safety standards.
Why Use Ceiling Down-light Protection Guards?
Ceiling down-light protection guards are used to improve energy efficiency, and also to protect homes from ceiling fires. Ceiling fires can be caused by downlights which reach high temperatures – particularly halogen lights which can be as hot as 300 degrees. If these temperatures cause insulation, or dust and debris which has been caught up in the ceiling cavity, to ignite, then a ceiling fire can follow. Ceiling downlight protection guards are simply a smart and simple way to protect your home.
What Do Ceiling Down-light Protection Guards Do?
Ceiling down-light protection guards are fitted to isolate down lights from surrounding insulation and building materials, and create a gap around them. This limits the chances of a fire, and also improves energy efficiency. However, it is important to choose the right protection guards for your type of light, and also to make sure that the ones you buy comply with all of the relevant legislation and safety regulations. Buying cheap in this case can be not only a waste of money, but also a safety hazard for you and your family. We can help you choose the right option for your home.
