Good Value Product

" This is a good value, well built and well designed product. Very easy to fit and despite the previous reviewer saying it was difficult to fit the bulb, I had no such issues and found it easy and well designed so that the bulb was kept central and close to the frosted glass cover. Perfect! "

" Excellent quality and easy to install.
Terminals are a tad small for daisy chain method so use junction boxes at each fitting.
Cut out is 70mm not 78mm so be aware before you butcher your ceiling! "

" Great finish, does what is says on the box. Easy to fit and when an LED lamp is fitted there is literally no heat from these fittings.
Good reliable fitting. "

Easy fit and coped with oversi
1 Jan 2014
By

" Bought to replace old 12V units and the existing holes were over the specified 68mm but the units fitted well and the spring clips held the units in firmly.
Low cost design means the bulbs are held in with springs which is a bit of a pain initially. "

" Had an electrician install these for us in the kitchen. He had originally specified Aurora fittings which were too cost prohibitive so I asked him to get a cheaper alternative. He said he was quite impressed by them and would use them again -- more importantly, they got the all-important Wife Approval Factor! "

Very good downlights
18 Jul 2012
By
, Saltash
" Cut out hole size is 70mm NOT 78mm as previous reviewer from Edinburgh stated. The downlight is IP65 rated with the rubber seal in place and they are fire rated with the instrument pot on the back. The terminal block is slighty small and would do better if it was bigger for a loop in/loop out method. "

Neat light fittings
5 Mar 2012
By
, Weardale
" Well constructed fittings and very easy to install in the bathroom ceiling.
The only reason for the 4 star rating is that the bulbs are tricky to fit onto the spring holders on the enclosed covers. This meant that it was not possible to fit low energy or LED bulbs as the extra bulb length meant that they kept popping the covers off the fittings. Ordinary halogen lamps work fine. "

Returned - Lamps wouldn't fit
22 Mar 2014
By
, Leeds
" Unfortunately had to return these as the push fit front bezels would not sit level due to the lack of room inside the fitting for the lamp and lampholder. Perhaps the lampholder has changed or the can has got shorter as it is very difficult to get the lamp and bezel back into the housing and when it does go it doesn't sit level.
Used normal GU10 lamps not longer LED or CFLs.
Shame as the frosted glass is a good feature and spreads the light much better than other fittings with clear glass.
Not much room for error in cutting the hole in ceiling as the bezel is only 10mm larger than the cut out. "

" Lucky i tried this on a test piece first. It just rips the plaster edges to pieces. With such a small area around the face to cover this up it was not fit for purpose. Sent back ASAP. "

Completely useless...
19 May 2012
By
, Edinburgh
" This product should NOT be sold as fire rated or ip65..
It's not any of the above (if installed correctly)
After you connect your wires into the smallest terminal block in the world you will then fit the outer shell into the 78mm hole you've cut in the ceiling. This is when you realise that you have 1mm play on either side...
If you can get the fire seal to seat well on the space you're left with then you are the most talented person in the world..
In reality this doesn't happen..
Looks great, but not suitable as an ip65 fire rated downlight..
I'm very disappointed that Screwfix are selling this product. "
