ceiling recessed spotlights


Postby mwilson75 » Sun Sep 02, 2007 10:32 am

Could anyone tell me what the regs say about the installation of 35 - 50W mains halogen downlights. I am looking to fit these into several rooms throughout my house (not the bathroom) and I don't know if they have to be fire rated or covered with hoods. Also I am wanting some new 13amp sockets installing. What is the lowest I can have these?
Many thanks.
