Lighting experts, Luceco, are proud to unveil the latest additions of Dim2Warm, Flick Switch Colour Change and Adjustable downlights to their innovative FType range.

Designed and engineered with superior performance at its heart, Luceco is building on the success of the FType’s 2017 range with an additional selection of market-leading downlights due to a gap in the market for Dim to warm and colour-changing lights. 

Positioned as ‘the trendsetter’ for both design and installation, the fire rated FType was the first of its kind to deliver 100 lumens per Watt (W) in its core range. Available in both 6W and 8W versions, FType has become a welcome addition by installers, consumers and wholesalers. Lucecos focus on fast-fit solutions, flawless functionality and maximum energy saving, makes the FType perfect for both new build and retrofit applications.

Using the latest Samsung LED chip technology, its integrated dimmable driver and speed-fit™ loop in/loop out piano key terminals allow for fast and simple installation on both stranded and solid wire cable, making the FType one of the most efficient and unrivalled residential fire rated downlight ranges on the market.

Fully compliant with British Standards, as well as with building regulations, the FType range is tested to maintain a fire barrier with 30, 60 and 90-minute ratings. Fixed versions of the product are also IP65 rated, meaning they can be installed in bathrooms to match the rest of the dwelling installation.

The downlight features 10 different bezels to choose from; offering wholesalers the chance to upsell, and allowing customers to find the perfect fit for their home. Incorporating both a thermalrod heatsink and crystalline optic designs, the FType includes a unique 60° baffled back lenses which delivers crystal clear, low-glare illumination giving users a true halogen-like appearance.

Simon Shenton, Product Manager at Luceco, said: “The new products are a welcome addition to the successful FType range. The focus on performance and safety make it a vital part of Luceco’s core offering to our customers. With the recent introduction of products like our Dim2Warm, we can now provide our customers with a fire rated downlight that can truly mimic the warming and cosy effect of dimming halogen, but with the benefits of LED technology.”

The international product has quickly become an installation of choice across the UK and Europe, as well as also being rolled out across a number of projects in the Middle East. Customer demand has also seen Luceco introduce an eco-version of the FType: F-ECO. This product was created to allow the customer to install a cost effective, fire rated lighting solution.

The early success of the range has seen the FType provide benefits to multiple audiences. For installers, it boasts a tool-free, quick and easy installation. To the consumer, it provides unmatchable performance, quality and value for money. The wholesaler then has the ability to offer customers a wide selection of product options and colour selectable interchangeable bezels.

Industry feedback so far has been glowing, with many citing the FType as the perfect downlight for installers. Thanks to its smart features, including push in connectors and cord grip terminals, the FType downlight is simple to secure and install, providing performance and quality long after installation.
