New from Paviom
Paviom is launching a new range of Fire Rated Downlights that incorporates the patented UTEKTON System, which seals the ceiling aperture in the event of a fire and eliminates the need for a separate fire hood in a fire-rated ceiling. Featuring an easy to install ceiling clamp fixing system, these single and twin lamp downlights are quickly installed whilst retaining the BRE fire rating for 30, 60 and 90 minutes.
Most fire rated downlights currently on the market use a traditional intumescent strip which, in the event of a fire, expands to fill ventilation holes in the downlights and any gaps around the fitting itself. However, intumescent strips are expensive and can degrade over time affecting the original fire performance levels.
This new range of Fire Rated Downlights from Paviom has been designed to offer an effective alternative to the intumescent strip. Its patented UTEKTON system uses a spring shut fire seal system that includes a sealing plate and sacrificial spacer. Under normal conditions, this sacrificial spacer provides a platform for a sealing plate to sit on, keeping the ventilation holes clear and allowing the lamp to offer its optimum performance.
