These insulating covers are designed specifically to reinstate the integrity of the insulation in your ceiling that was necessarily compromised after installation of a halogen downlight. By retro-fitting these downlights with an LED bulb and then using these covers you not only make your lighting more efficient but you restore the insulation back to near original.
Many house fires have been attributed to overheating around halogen downlights because the insulation had not been adequately removed. Unfortunately, by removing the insulation you also produce a “heat chimney” effect. This allows a great deal of heat loss in winter through these breaks in insulation, costing you money and resulting in increased GHG as a result of having to generate more heat to replace that lost. In summer, also, these breaks in insulation allow the super-heated air in your ceiling cavity (sometimes getting to over 70C) to infiltrate your living spaces.
Size: 270 mm diameter by 280 mm high
Please note: Whilst you CAN use these with halogen lamps, we thoroughly recommend exchanging your energy hungry halogens for efficient LED lamps – you’ll save a heap!!!
