F4CC6B17-39DB-4271-80DD-B5A7AED527F2.jpeg greetings :)
Was curious about the ceiling lights in the kitchen if they were fire rated or not.
Google was no help with model info.
There’s an F in a triangle symbol on the side, but I don’t know if that means anything.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Gary

Might have answered my own question!
Googled fire rating symbols and according to big brother, the lights are fire rated, suitable for mounting on normally flammable surfaces.

Well, this was a sort thread... And only 1 person involved... :)
 
That’s a good question. I fitted some recently and they were marked on the box and leaflet as fire rated but can’t see any relevant markings on the lamp fitting itself!

Think you’ll find an ‘F’ in a triangle means suitable for mounting on a flammable surface only.

A fire rated luminaire, as far as I’m aware, refers to its ability to resist the spread of a fire.

Agree. Perfect but you would have thought this fire rated ability would have its own mark!

Hi - apologies for repetition of what others have said - in its day I think the symbol means luminaire may be mounted on a flammable surface, say plywood. BUT that symbol says nothing about the luminaire’s fire rating. The lamp doesn’t look fire rated to me, just saying.

if that's fire rated, I'm a teenager.
 
You would therefore think that a downlight would have BS476... on it somewhere.
