An LED downlight is a light fixture that is installed in the ceiling - named as it lights downwards to illuminate the room below. The range of LED downlights in stock here at Vision Lighting are fire rated for 30, 60, and 90-minute ceilings.

Compact in design for installation in shallow voids, this high-quality LED product can be used in both commercial and residential settings. Downlights have become increasingly popular because they have low power consumption, provide a practical design that takes up limited space, and offer an impressive life span.

How to Choose the Right Downlight

Choosing and installing downlights can feel like a difficult choice, with various options on the market. Here are some tips when choosing which to go for:

  • Choose LED not halogen: In terms of wattage, a good choice of downlight will provide a high beam yet still be energy efficient. The average 10W LED downlight creates a beam with double the brightness of a halogen downlight, which would use up to 55W - they have since been banned in the UK due to help tackle climate change.
  • Check your existing wall colouring: Lighter-coloured walls appear brighter than darker-coloured walls, which absorb more natural light. Keep this in mind when choosing your downlight’s brightness and beam angle.
  • Only purchase fire-rated fittings: Whilst buying non-fire-rated downlights may initially be cheaper, they will cost you more in the longer term.
  • Check your room size: For bigger rooms, it would be best to choose brighter downlights that have a wider beam angle.
  • Use IP-rated downlights in bathrooms: Downlights rated from IP44 to IP65 are suitable for bathrooms. The higher the second digit, the more water resistant it is.

Do I Need Fire-Rated Downlights?

It is recommended by the Electrical Safety Council that fire-rated downlights should be used in all types of ceilings. This is because holes are cut into ceilings in order to mount the downlight, which in return counts as a fire hazard. You’ll find that the majority of fire-rated downlights are rated for 30, 60 and 90-minute ceiling types.

30-Minute Ceilings: Made from a 600mm joist centre with one layer of 12.5mm thick plasterboard.

60-Minute Ceilings: Made from a 600mm joist centre with two layers of plasterboard that are 15mm thick.

90-Minute Ceilings: Made from a 450mm joist centre with two layers of plasterboard that are 15mm thick.
