Are you on the hunt for a Loft Lid Downlight Cover that does its job, without affecting your ability to position insulation around downlights? Or perhaps you’re looking for a fire retardant downlight cover that’s easy to install, even when close to roof joists and trusses? Whatever the issue, you’ll soon be wondering why you hadn’t invested in a Chimney Sheep Loft Lid Downlight Cover earlier.

Designed to act as a protective, fire retardant barrier, the downlight insulation cover, not only allows for safe downlight installation, but also ensures that your loft space remains as energy efficient as possible.

What are the benefits of using a Loft Lid Downlight Cover?

  • Fire Safe~ Chimney Sheep fire retardant downlight covers, create a protective barrier around downlights, to ensure that your loft insulation does not come into direct contact with the lights. This prevents overheating, ensures that there is adequate ventilation around the lights for heat dissipation and more importantly, prevents the occurrence of fire.
  • Energy Efficient~ The downlight protector allows for a continuous layer of insulation to be safely placed over the top of it, thus helping to eliminate the loss of valuable heat into your loft space.
  • Easy Installation~ A unique shape allows for the downlight protector to be easily installed into all lofts, even when the downlights are close to roof trusses and joists. What’s more? The downlight cover provides a sufficient volume to fit all major brands of downlights, with up to a maximum power rating of 50W.
  • Airtight Cover~ The Loft Lid Downlight Cover will create an airtight seal around your downlights, which works as an effective barrier to dust, pests and insects.

    Does exactly what its suppost to!

    Sturdy build, great value, probably the best fire rated cover going.

    Upside down bucket

    Run a bead of sealant around the bottom for a semi perminant fix. Allows loft boarding to be placed over the top. Simple but functional.

    Good shape with plenty of room for light fitting

  5. Mr D.W. Bond

    Excellent product

    This is a sturdy product with sufficient head room to accommodate the control gear for the lamp. I discovered that the electrician who fitted the lamps to my refurbished shower room 14 months ago, failed to fit lids. On changing a bulb I get fine fiberglass falling into the room, not nice to breath in. After clearing away the blown in fiberglass I fitted the lids and intend fitting rolls of insulation over the lids.

    Good and sturdy.

    They are as advertised. They look strong and well made. Too early to comment on reliability.

    Fire rated downlight hoods

    Bought these as loft was getting a much needed insulation top up/ upgrade after 14 years. Original delivery went awol but seller sent another lot out after emailing them. 2nd delivery had a damaged unit and again the seller sent a replacement one out. Outstanding comms from the seller. Stuck them down using fire proof mastic, not a problem with laying the insulation around and over them. Overall, very happy with the product and the seller.

    Easy to install. I sleep a lot better knowing the spotlights won’t overheat in the attic

    Good sturdy product. Just something to keep in mind–if like me, you have your attic, or room above, floored, then your joists need to be at least 6 inches deep (leaving no clearance to your floor above). With 7 inch joists you will have clearance of only 1 inch to top with a small thickness of insulation. Mine are 9 inch-so it didn’t matter.

    Great price fast delivery

    Does Exactly as required

    A great way of keeping downlights clear of insulation and preventing heat escaping through any gaps. Easy to fit with cut outs on all sides for cables. I put cheap sealant around the edge before putting into position which prevents it from moving and provides an air tight seal. You can buy special downlights that can be pushed up into insulation without the need for clearance but it worked out cheaper buying standard downlights and these lids instead. You do need to have reasonable access above the downlights though.
