Solution and Application
The fitting of the Partel Downlight Cover dramatically reduces the volume of air leakage through each down-light and in fact at normal pressures totally negates it, therefore reducing draughts and energy loss.
The product is extremely easy to install and does not need to be installed by an insulation professional. Simply clear the area around the downlight after turning off the power. Making sure to clean the surface of dust and debris. After this affix, the downlight covers into place with the wires of the light fitting neatly through the gaps in the downlight cover. If preferred, water-based adhesive or airtight tapes to fix the downlight cover to the base. Loft insulation is then fitted over Partel Downlight Covers.
Gaps in ceiling insulation dramatically reduce its overall performance, typically insulation performance is reduced by 50% if only 5% of the ceiling area is not fully insulated.
The ‘Down-light Attic Seal’ restores ceiling performance to a similar level as a un-penetrated ceiling by allowing the insulation to be continuous and uninterrupted over the whole area of the ceiling saving energy and carbon emissions and COST!
