Why you should always use fire rated downlights

If you are upgrading the lighting anywhere in your home to downlights you may have been asked this age old question.....”do you want fire rated or non-fire rated downlights?” To the average home owner this question will be pretty meaningless apart from the fact that fire rated sounds better than non-fire rated possibly.
However, the difference between the two is stark and in fact opting for the wrong type of downlight could cost a life – this is why it is important to beware of the difference between the two before answering the question.
