Large Downlight Guide


Versatility and design

Large downlights are clean, streamlined and architecturally positive in appearance, plus great if your client doesn’t prefer a bulky light fixtures. As you know, downlights suit most types of commercial / residential spaces and are a great recommendation, packed with all the energy saving benefits.

What are the benefits of using large downlights?

When developing a commercial or industrial space or working to retrofit an existing space, it’s always good to have a versatile large LED downlight at the ready. It’s even more important, if you are working with a project, aiming to reuse existing cutouts from 145mm, 165mm or 200mm in size, this makes install a breeze.

For sparkys working with gyrock ceilings, large downlights are far easier to install, compared to panels, which normally require expensive plaster recess kits, which in most cases, cost more than the LED panel itself. Large downlights come in a choice of clear or frosted diffuser, offering you a 60° or 90° light spread choice.

High CRI (Colour Rendering Index) is also important, plus a great offering point for industry’s, that request accurate colour reproduction, such as fabrics, photographics, commercial printing or high end retail.

How large downlights can be used?

Large downlights create a dramatic focal point, when positioned above, since they have a narrower beam angle, compared to panels. This is especially great for retail environments, allowing products to be showcased, more effectively.

They can be used for task lighting or general illumination both indoors and outdoors.
