Why else should you use a Spotbead?
- Many of the higher-end downlights have narrow mounting flanges to minimise ceiling dimensions, resulting in a lower tolerance to cover the mounting hole. Spotbead creates a cleaner neater hole with less chance of collapse when the fixing springs attach makes installation much easier.
- The final choice of downlight size can be decided later in the project. The cut-out on the Spotbead allows for downlight sizes of between 72mm down to 57mm or less if fire-rated downlights aren't required.
- Cables can be stripped back, terminated and tested before plastering, then left behind the Spotbead ready for second fix wiring.
- The solid hole edge reduces the risk of ceiling damage during testing and maintenance over the life of the installation.
