Is this the delivered price?
#2
Check if you need fire rated devices. These are unlikely to be at that price.
#3
Great price might not meet the latest building regs but I suppose that would only apply in new build properties.

Voted hot.

Go for fire rated although if you want good ones ie Ansell you are looking about £9 each, i always recommend these to customers:thumbsup:

Halogen downlights are the biggest fad that people have fallen for since the avocado bathroom suite.

They are a pain to install and the light from them is ugly, not to mention unflattering! People only want them because the Jones' have them.

Why do these not meet building regs?

Surely Wickes wouldnt sell them if they didnt meet the regs?

... Maybe some people like them because they dont like ugly lights that dangle from the ceiling? I personally prefer downlights, and these are a breeze to install with the right tools. If downlights are unflattering then maybe you would be better off with no lights at all? :roll:

Agreed. New enery saving LED bulbs for downlighters can replace the halogen ones and have a variety of nice lighting effects.

Agreed, my house is full of them, put in by the previous owner.
How do I get rid of them? Do I need a plasterer or is there an easy way to fill the holes. I live in a bungalow so can access them from the loft area.

If you have these then you have holes in your ceiling -

The easiest way to deal with them is to remove the downlights
get in the loft and and cut a square of plasterboard (bigger than the hole of course)
go round hole with hard as nails or similair
and stick the sq of P/board over hole
then plaster :thumbsup:

... or if you're not keen on plastering...

(1) buy a hole saw the same size as the holes in your ceiling (Wickes normally sell them).
(2) Cut out some holes from a new sheet of plaster board.
(3) Screw a piece of wood across the top of your hole, then screw a circle cut-out to the wood.
(4) Poly filler around the small gap in the ceiling.
(5) Rub it down and refill until smooth.
(6) Then a couple of coats of paint should do the trick.

Remember the wires to the lights will be live, so turn of the electric, and remove / block off the unnecessary wiring. An electrician should really be used for this.
