Thermahood – FAQs -Can I fit insulation over fire rated downlights? — August 11, 2016

Thermahood – FAQs -Can I fit insulation over fire rated downlights?

Can I fit insulation over fire rated downlights?

It is now a requirement of Building Regulations that loft insulation must be continuous, meaning it is no longer acceptable to leave gaps in the insulation around downlights! The answer to this question depends on the type of downlight, some fire rated downlights can be covered directly with insulation and some cannot. The most comprehensive way of addressing this is to fit a fire rated downlight, a LED lamp with a Thermahood downlight cover and then fit loft insulation over this. Using this method you will have the benefit of a fire rated downlight, the energy consumption savings from LED lamps and the protection of Thermahood downlight covers!

Thermahood – Stop air and dust infiltration!

Air & Dust infiltration could be causing a lot of problems in our homes, including unwanted draughts and poor air quality. Unwanted draughts can be uncomfortable and costly but also the often forgotten problem of dust infiltration. These draughts can be carrying dust particles from the loft where downlights create an easy path for this infiltration.

The effects of this poor air quality can lead to a number of ailments such as headaches and respiratory illnesses including Asthma. It is estimated that in the UK 1200 people die each year because of Asthma, that is more than 3 people per day.

Thermahood downlight covers can help reduce air dust infiltration through downlights – http://www.thermahood.com/Info/
