DO NOT install insulation over down lighters and transformers.

A Halogen down-lighter reaches 320 °C – Replace Halogen down-light globes with new LED (±80 ºC)

Important Notice: Clearance around Appliances and Fittings!

Care should be taken when installing insulation to ensure that it does not interfere with the safety or performance of domestic services and fittings such as heating flues, recessed light fittings, gas appliances and general plumbing and electrical components. This includes providing appropriate clearance as detailed in relevant legislation and referenced standards such as for electrical, gas and fuel oil installations.

Some appliances and fittings, such as recessed down lights and heater flues, require free space around them for the dissipation of heat, to reduce fire hazard. Insulation should not be placed against these fixtures. Regulations and manufacturers’ recommendations should always be checked before installing insulation.

Allow clearance around appliances and fittings. Electrical wiring must be appropriately installed and should not be covered by insulation or it may overheat.

Unless otherwise specified by manufacturers of insulation;

  • Do not install insulation within 90mm of hot flues or exhaust fans, or within 25mm of recessed light fittings.
  • Retain a clearance of 90mm for low voltage downlights

Restrain loose-fill insulation with non-combustible barriers.
