WHAT TYPE OF DOWNLIGHTS TO PASS BUILDING REGS?


Postby SUSIE Q » Mon Jul 23, 2007 5:24 pm

I AM CURRENTLY HAVING EXTENSION FINSHED. IN ABSENCE OF A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN AT THEMOMENT CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF I NEED TO USE FIRE RATED DOWN LIGHTS IN THE LIVING AREA OF THE EXTENSION, OR CAN I JUST BUY BASIC ONES? :?:

Hi

You should also bear in mind that fitting low voltage downlights is notifiable work.

Which is why I am fitting mains voltage ones.
