Ansell Fire Rated Downlights Fully Compliant In All Ceiling Types

Ansell Lighting’s industry-leading downlights have passed relevant testing to ensure full compliance in all ceiling types. We have test reports and certification for 30/60/90 minute duration tests on Solid Timber, I-joist and Metal Web.

The National House Building Council (NHBC), the UK’s leading warranty and insurance provider for UK house-building for new homes, states that steps should be taken to ensure that fire rated downlights are compliant with solid timber, I-joists and metal web ceiling constructions being used in new build homes.  They state fire-resistant downlighters and fire-resistant hoods are only acceptable if test evidence supports their use in similar ceiling types.

Ansell’s Technical Manager Anthony Parkinson commented, "I’m delighted with the outcome of our recent fire testing. There was a large financial investment to ensure our products are fully compliant and we have spent the best part of two years in conjunction with joist and plasterboard manufacturers to ensure the ceiling specification we used in the tests are to industry standards. This has culminated in positive test results across Solid timber, I-joist and metal web construction."

These latest results further cement Ansell’s dedication to product quality and compliance. If you would like test evidence, please contact Technical on technical@anselluk.com or call 01942 433331.
