Tested and Approved Downlight Protection Covers

TENMAT Downlight Protection Cover

TENMAT FIREFLY Downlight Protection Covers

TENMAT presents the FF130 and FF120 loft covers, which meet and surpass the requirements of AS 3000:2007 whilst also dramatically reducing the energy loss associated with downlights. Unlike other products on the Australian market, TENMAT covers are fully tested for lamps up to and including a full 50 Watts, this is a critical safety factor as it must be assumed that 50 Watt lamps will be fitted at some point in the future.

TENMAT works with many lighting manufacturers worldwide and there is general consensus that downlights:

1) Should never be directly covered with insulation.

2) Downlights require ventilation to prevent overheating.

TENMAT covers fulfill both of these requirements as the porous nature of the material allows controlled airflow.

All TENMAT Downlight Protection Covers comply with:
- AS 3000:2007
- AS 60598.1
- AS 60598.2.2
- Wiring Regulation AS/NZS 3000:2007 Figure 4.7 under Recessed Luminaires - Clause Method (b)
