The fire-rated Astro Taro Single Downlight can be tilted to a maximum angle of 35-degrees, which makes it useful for accent lighting as well as overall illumination. Beautifully finished in brushed aluminium, the Taro is a demonstration of Astro's flair for contemporary lighting design.
Fire safety regulations invariably require that recessed lighting beneath occupied floors is fire-rated. Fire-rated light fittings such as this Taro Single Downlight use intumescent materials in their construction, which expands when heated and protects the integrity of the ceiling against the easy spread of flames. This fire-resistance crucially allows occupants above to evacuate the building.
An IP20 (Ingress Protection) rating restricts the use of this Astro Taro Single Downlight to dry areas, though it can be installed in zone 3 areas of a bathroom. This is a Class 1 fitting that requires a connection to electrical earth during installation.
The Taro Single Downlight takes a maximum 50W GU10 halogen spotlight (sold separately). The initial cost of a halogen bulb will be minimal, but an LED alternative can save you up to 90% in running costs over original halogen technology and lasts anywhere from 10 to 25 times longer.
The directional nature of LED makes it especially economical as a spotlight, since very little light spills outside of the beam.
