SOLA Universal Fire Rated Downlight

Aurora has developed the first truly universal fire rated downlight with complete compatibility for retrofitting all lamp types.

It can be directly covered with insulation, has been tested in 30, 60 and 90 minute fire-rated ceilings and features LED optimisation for longer lamp life.

SOLA Universal accepts most lamp types

Complete lamp compatibility

  • GU10 or MR16
  • 12V or 240V
  • LED, CFL, or Halogen

The SOLA Universal comes with fitted GU10 and optional MR16 lampholders to accommodate 12V/240V halogen, CFL or LED lamps.

To deliver longer lamp life, the patented insulation cover (IC) has enlarged ventilation slots designed for maximum heat dissipation and optimum ventilation. This reduces internal can temperature by 20 percent. This IC allows the downlight to be directly covered with thermal insulation material (including 'Celotex') without a downlight insulation guard required.

SOLA Universal is guaranteed for 2 years and available in fixed, adjustable and IP65 options. Choose the compact can versions for reduced height installations in shallow ceiling voids.

Fit the SOLA Universal downlight with the Fastfix connector and IC rated electronic transformer for the most effective, insulation coverable, fire rated downlighting solution.
