I'm in the middle of having a new kitchen fitted and the builder discovered that the downlights have been over-heating and one of them was melting. He recommended I fit fire safe downlights instead. I was told it would be easy to do, similar to wiring a plug.
However, I am not sure how much ventilation to allow around the lights regarding roof insulation and joists. Also the existing cable is classed as BS 6500 3183Y CCC/FKZ BASEC and I am not sure if this is right?? The replacement downlights are 240V GU10 acoustic rated fire protection 50W max - 2 adjustable and 4 fixed.
There are two switches for these lights at either end of the kitchen. One is a single the other is a triple which is also connected to under unit strip lights and outside wall lights.
