Product Description

The Taro Round Downlight is stylishly designed in white and ideal for any room where you want unobtrusive lighting. It's a great choice for bedrooms, kitchens, hallways, or living rooms. An IP20 rating makes it less than ideal for bathrooms, as it offers no resistance to water. This fitting is made extra versatile with its adjustable light head, which can be tilted at a maximum 35° angle. You can use this to aim light directly where needed or bounce light off any nearby pale surface for broader, softer illumination.

Since the Taro is fire rated, you won't need to buy a separate fire hood for compliance with Part B Fire Safety Regulations. This is mostly an issue when installing recessed lights below occupied floors and may not be needed in upstairs rooms below a roof void.

A fire-rated fitting preserves the integrity of a ceiling in the event of a fire, rather than letting flames take hold of the ceiling cutout. Crucially, this delays the possibility of a ceiling collapse and allows time for upstairs occupants and emergency services personnel to evacuate.

Bulb requirements

The Astro Taro Round Downlight requires a maximum 50W GU10 bulb (sold separately).

Either a halogen or LED GU10 can be used with this fitting. A halogen bulb more economical to buy and emits high quality light, but is relatively poor in term of energy efficiency. An LED GU10 is 80-90% more energy efficient than halogen and lasts 10 to 25 times longer. LED spotlights are also available in cool colour temperatures, which are occasionally preferred in kitchens or offices.
