The room is approx 5.3 meters long, about 3 meters wide and along the centre of the pitched ceiling (which is flat) is about 3.5 meters

The client wants downlights .... in the centre of the flat section of the pitched ceiling.

Concerned about the spread of light .....

Looking for recommendations please based on experience

Thanks

Why dont you put some gimble fittings in would make seance.
then the spread of light would be better .

What’s the spread on the very shallow 12watt type with a recessed diffuser - almost commercial in style but very neat.
I haven’t used any but like the look. Amitex centurian. Says 90 degree spread.

Edit, I have used the centurian and it’s very good and comes with remote if required but I was talking about this style.

Ansell Orbio come with 15 and 30 degree lenses so you can direct the light where you want without having to use gimbal fittings. They also work brilliantly with their own (cheapish) Ansell dimmer

What insulation is going to be around these down lights? What space are you going to have above them?

I'd be inclined to use Enlite Uni-fit for what seems to be proposed. Depending on how wide the flat part of the ceiling is, how deep the space is behind that and what insulation is used in proximity of the fitting.

‘Last edited by moderator’ has made the posts make no sense - @ruston and @anthonybragg and a ceiling fan in the library!
The butler did it!

That’s a nice smart and clean looking light @plugsandsparks - I linked to the centurion which is much the same.
It’s sometime difficult to not get a little excited about lighting!

I have to say it really annoys when the OP doesn’t come back with anything - typical outsider @Murdoch

Currently in the market for RGBW stair way lights, about 35mm diameter if anybody has a product in mind
