The Robus Aluminium Directional Downlight is a stylish recessed fitting with a satin chrome bezel and an adjustable light head. The light can be tilted at an angle of up to 20°, allowing you to aim light where required. This IP20-rated fitting is intended solely for dry indoor areas, and is perfect for a hallway, kitchen or office.
Great value for money, the Robus Aluminium Directional Downlight comes with a bracket, terminal block and lamp-holder. To comply with Part B Fire Safety requirements (England and Wales), a separate intumescent fire hood may be required. This maintains the integrity of a fire-rated ceiling in the event of a fire, and is usually necessary when recessed lights are fitted below an occupied floor.
As an ‘F’ marked fitting, the Robus Aluminium Directional Downlight can be mounted onto a ‘normally flammable’ surface. This includes most regular building materials, such as plasterboard, masonry or wood. Easily flammable materials are incompatible. A minimum 0.5m distance is required from the nearest illuminated object.
Class II double insulated
As a Class 2 double-insulated fitting, the Aluminium Directional Downlight requires no connection to earth during installation. This extends its suitability to properties without an earthed lighting circuit.
This product comes with a reassuring 3-year manufacturer’s guarantee.
The Robus Aluminium Directional Downlight accommodates a 50W maximum GU10 or GZ10 halogen lamp (sold separately). It has a GZ10 lamp-holder, which accepts either type of lamp.
A GZ10 is a dichroic version of a GU10, filtering much of its generated IR heat through the back of the lamp rather than projecting it in the beam. This is useful when lighting heat-sensitive items like artworks or food. Although a GZ10 does not theoretically fit into a chamfered GU10 lamp-holder for safety reasons, please double-check suitability against manufacturer’s instructions before use.
An LED GU10 can also be selected for this fitting, which is naturally absent of any significant IR heat or UV radiation in its beam. An LED retrofit lamp will reduce energy consumption over a halogen by 80-90%, as well as lasting much longer. A return on the higher initial investment is assured.
The dimensions of the Robus Aluminium Directional Downlight are:
