Hi everyone,

I have some LED Downlights installed in my house and i noticed that they have been fully covered with the pink batt insulation.
Is that ok? I noticed the LED Downlights lights get just a bit hot and the insulation is touching it. I concern about the possibility of a fire.

Switch is fine to cover along with the driver, (we put truckloads of these in and have a good relationship with the company, great product made in NZ for NZ conditions). Most of their models can also be installed touching timber.

 

A quick search of the second one suggests it has an IC-4 rating allowing it to be covered and abutted also

 

You've mentioned pink batts, so just for anyone else reading this later these ratings are not applicable to certain types of insulation and it's best to check beforehand (pink batts is fine)
