WIll downlighter bell housing cause fire to insulation above

by conks » Sat May 16, 2009 12:16 pm

Hi,

I'm to fit a series of spotlights in my kitchen.

The Kit is in a single storey extension, with a small roof void above filled with typical wool insulation.

I'm concerned that once in-situ, the bell housings may get hot and then set fire to the insulation/ceiling joists etc. ?

Can you confirm please.

Thanks.

Thermal Insulation is recommended to be at least 150mm from light lighting in ceiling void, this work is in a kitchen and needs to be notified to Building Controls or done by registered electrician or you are breaking the law. Check out project pages on Part P of building regulations.
