Our inhouse team of developers at HellermannTyton has responded quickly to new challenges in downlighting to offer the best solution for residential and industrial buildings.
The installation of downlights in suspended ceilings, whether in residential or industrial buildings, often poses a compatibility problem between the insulation in the ceiling and the need of airflow for the downlight (risk of overheating and fire).
Indeed, to ensure a perfect insulation of buildings and energy-saving properties, it is recommended not to cut or create holes in the insulation material.
It is therefore necessary to protect the downlight with a system which is lifting the insulation material while creating space around the downlight to prevent overheating.
HellermannTyton engineers have developed a protection system in form of caps, the downlight covers SpotClip. Depending on the SpotClip, it can be used with solid or blow in insulation material. There are products available for small such as very large downlights.
Downlight covers for residential buildings
SpotClip-I, SpotClip-II, SpotClip-III, and SpotClip-Box are designed for use in residential buildings. This new and innovative range of downlight covers has been developed to mount downlights in all types of suspended ceilings, ensuring the necessary safety distance to insulation material. This reduces the risk of fire and overheating to a minimum. Furthermore, the SpotClip solution increases the life span of lighting.
Downlight covers for industrial buildings
SpotClip-Kit and SpotClip-Plate are designed for the use in industrial buildings. This new and innovative product range has been developed to mount downlights in all types of suspended ceilings, ensuring the necessary safety distance to insulation material.
SpotClip-Plate prevents damage and cracks in ceiling plates caused by the weight of heavy downlights.
