The heads can be tilted at a maximum 35-degree angle from vertical, making them great for overall illumination or accent lighting.
There are several installation points to be noted with the Taro Triple Downlight, the most important of which refers to fire safety. To comply with fire safety regulations a recessed light fitting such as this cannot be installed in a ceiling with an occupied floor above it, because it compromises the integrity of the ceiling and may jeopardise overhead evacuation. A single-light, fire-rated version of the Taro is available from Lyco for use on the lower levels of a multi-storeyed building.
In addition, this is a Class 1 fitting that requires a connection to electrical earth during installation. With an IP20 rating, that installation should not expose the Taro Triple Downlight to water, but it can be installed in the drier 'zone 3' areas of a bathroom.
The Taro Triple Downlight - White is not fire-rated. If you are planning to install this product into a building or location that is governed by building regulations, you will also need to purchase and install an appropriate intumescent firehood in conjunction with it to retain the fire-rating integrity of the ceiling. If in doubt please consult your electrician / installer.
The Taro Triple Downlight takes a maximum 3 x 50W halogen GU10 spotlights, which are widely available with a choice of beam angles.
Energy-saving halogen lamps can be used, which usually offer around 20-30% in energy savings over original halogen technology. For greater energy-efficiency you might opt for LED GU10 bulbs, which use up to 90% less watts and last from 10 to 25 times longer than halogen. LED is a particularly energy-efficient technology for spotlighting, since its directional nature means very little light is spilled outside of the beam.
