JCC Lighting have redesigned the fire rated GU10 downlight and produced the FireGuard series.
JCC Lighting have redesigned the fire rated GU10 downlight and produced the FireGuard series. They've gone back to the drawing board, consulted with installers and end users to create a new and advanced type of GU10 downlight.
The JCC FireGuard is a combination of the best features of an integrated downlight with the benifts of a replaceable GU10 cap type. Fitted with a proper, press-fit wiring connector to speed up installation times, it has a tapered can design for a smoother ceiling entry.
The twist-lock bezels have a slim, modern appearance that look and feel more like an integrated LED downlight rather than a GU10. Detachable bezels make installations easier as you simply detach them when you're ready to paint your ceiling.
They're fire rated, insulation coverable and I-Joist certified.

Choosing the right finish or color for your downlights is crucial in achieving a harmonious interior design. For a cohesive aesthetic, consider coordinating the finish of your light fittings with that of your switches and sockets. Matt white remains the top choice for downlight finishes due to its universal appeal and it blends in with white ceilings.
Fire-rated downlights are designed to preserve the fire resistance of ceilings by preventing fire spread through the cut-out spaces required for installing these recessed lighting fixtures.

https://www.downlightsdirect.co.uk/philips-master-value-4-9w-gu10-led-dimmable.htmlAnswer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 30 Jun 2022, 05:31Do you know if the latest variant of Philips Hue GU10 bulbs fit in the JCC Fireguard? Are you able to check before I place an order please?Question by: Greg on 14 Jul 2022, 02:59We don't stock the Philips Hue GU10 bulb. You could either send us one and we'll double check, or order a sample and check it yourself.
Physically, it will fit, but the Philips Hue has slightly rounded front which has caused issues with other downlights like the Integral EvoFire because that has a totally flat bezel, but the JCC FireGuard doesn't and has more space.
It should fit fine.Answer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 14 Jul 2022, 09:20Hi. I want to swap out some existing fittings that let a draught through. Would it be better to go for a bathroom rated light to minimise draught or would the standard one be ok?Question by: Roger on 1 Jan 2023, 17:51Very good question. There are no official recommendations for this but the IP65 bathroom version will offer a slightly more draft resistant option. The difference will be minimal but the cost is only slightly higher.
If you're covering them with thermal insulation, they won't pull in the warm air from the room below.Answer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 2 Jan 2023, 10:05Do you know what the maximum bulb depth is with these?
