Have a job to replace 6 way recessed DB. Have looked extensively online but smallest can find is 10 way. Seems there's
limited choice with these. Don't mind if have to chisel away abit to but need something preferably near the existing dimensions which are: Width 305, Height 180, Depth...
So I am choosing my downlights and I was looking at the cylinder shaped fire rated downlights. The electrician mentioned look at LED slim recessed downlights as my new plasterboard ceiling would not be able to hold the weight of the standard fire rate downlights.
One thing I didnt clarify - who...
I just bought a house which has a rec room with recessing lighting. I put some pics below. It has 11 120v MR16 GU10 circle recessed light cups. All the bulbs were 50W Halogen bulbs and they were controlled by a single toggle dimmer switch. The first thing I did was to replace the the toggle...
I am looking into fitting some sort of recessed spotlights in quite a contemporary home. Ideally i would like them to be integrated, with a trimless finish. they will also need to be compatible for dimming.

Hi everyone, sorry if this seems like a stupid post.
I have recently moved houses and want to install recessed lights in the bedroom. I have changed lighting fixtures were power is only sent to one fixture. Could I just simply send power to the first fixture and then daisy chain them using wire...

Ok - being very lazy and could do with some input from the collective!
Viewed a refurb the other day and the existing CU is one of these:
So my question is - (I'm not a MK fan) is there an current product that would be an almost direct refit?
Hi, my company is in the processing of upgrading lighting from fluorescent to LED. I am having trouble sourcing 1800mm x 600mm recessed panel light fittings. Is there anywhere that still has these sizes as all I can seem to find is the 1200mm x 600mm? How should I replace these units? All...

A customer is after some ‘affordable’ Recessed ceiling Bluetooth speakers suitable for a bathroom. I’ve never only ever installed customer supplied Bose and Sonos ones that are a small fortune.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
Hi, got a job coming up that will involve installing recessed lights into the patio. I'm trying to figure out the neatest and also compliant way of wiring these up.
Generally I wouldn't bury any cable other than SWA, but I can't imagine these walk over lights are going to have provision for...
I'm led to believe a failing recessed bathroom light I have is usually due to the thermal protector. However I see none in my lighting circuit; the bulb connects direct to an IBL 5002 50VA transformer.
My question is then is it likely the transformer that is faulty and can I replace it with...
Why do people still make none fire rated down-lights?
Got to do a quote for a new build where the client wants fittings that are not fire rated. Still waiting for quote from my wholesalers- but doubt they are cheap!
Round Trimless Magnetic Downlight -...
This maybe a daft question but I want to be 100% sure. Do fire rated recessed down lights require Insumescent covers? Or will a 200mm air gap surrounding the fitting suffice?
Thanks in advance
I am not an electrician, but before I go and call out fellows in the trade who charge by the hour just to give an opinion, I thought I'd ask you gentlefolk some questions:
I have two bathrooms, one with a sliding-door shower alone, another with a bathtub with an over-bath shower.
