What are downlights?

Downlights are recessed luminaires that are placed in the ceiling. They have standard sized and cut out sizes and are a replacer for your current CFL and PL-C downlight fixtures. There are also downlights which have the possibility to be dimmable. For ceilings where recessed luminaires are not possible you can install a surface mounted luminaire. Downlights can be placed in schools, offices, hallways and staircases and are therefore multifunctional!


LED downlights are available in different light colors:


  • Colour 830 - 930 3000 Kelvin - warm white
  • Colour 840 - 940 4000 Kelvin - cold white, most sold light colour for office use
  • Colour 865 6500 Kelvin – daylight




Replacing your old downlight for a LED downlight is easy, just follow these 6 steps:


  • Step 1.
    Make sure that the power is switched off. Before you replace a lamp the power must be switched off. For extra safety, you can convert the switch in the meter cupboard.

  • Step 2.
    Disconnect the power cord and remove the old downlight.

  • Step 3.
    Unscrew the driver cover. Then connect the euro cord: the brown cable goes on L, the blue cable goes on N. Screw the driver cover back on the downlight.

  • Step 4.
    Connect the powercord to the mains.

  • Step 5.
    Push the clips on the side of the downlight completely in and place the downlight in your ceiling.

  • Step 6.
    Turn the power back on and start saving energy and money immediately.
