Loft Lid
Recess Light Protectors

Product Code:  

The Loft Lid is a fire retardant downlight cover for safe, energy efficient installation of downlights in the loft space.

The Loft Lid creates a protective barrier or cover over downlights to prevent overheating and house fires. The design ensures loft insulation does not directly contact downlights and that there is sufficient ventilation around the light for heat dissipation.

The Loft Lid also eliminates heat loss and air leakage into the loft space and allows for a continuous layer of insulation to be laid over the top of the lid to comply with current building regulations.

The unique shape enables the product to be easily installed even when downlights are located close to roof joists or trusses and provides sufficient volume for all major brands of downlighters up to a maximum power rating of 50W.

The Loft Lid also creates an effective dust, acoustic and pest/insect seal and is extremely easy to install. The Loft Lid is manufactured in the UK from fire retardant material and has been tested and approved to British Standards by the UK Lighting Industry Association.
