With Issue 5 of the Ovia catalogue just released into circulation, Managing Director Mike Collins shines a light on one of the new light fittings he believes will be a star performer for the company this year.

Small and compact in name and format but packing a huge punch when it comes to features and benefits is the new Inceptor Milli dimmable, fixed, fire-rated LED downlight.

Designed to complement the range of downlight solutions already offered by Ovia, Inceptor Milli is aimed predominantly at the domestic market. It combines style and functionality to provide installers with a downlight that is quick and easy to fit and offers a range of features at the flick of a switch.

Standard or baffle
Inceptor Milli is an IP65-rated downlight available in both standard/fixed and baffle versions. The standard version provides a 60° beam angle, while the baffle provides a more focused 25° angle.

The baffle design ensures a more concentrated and directional illumination, making it an ideal choice for highlighting specific areas. The baffle is offered in a choice of white or black.

Five bezel finishes are available, with a range of White, Black, Chrome, Satin Chrome and Antique Brass finishes available.

With the standard version, you simply order the finish of your choice as a fixed finish. The baffle version is supplied with a white bezel, but this can be interchanged with any of the other finishes which are purchased separately.

Simply twist the existing bezel to remove and replace with the colour option of your choice. For a fresh new look in the future, it is simply a case of replacing the bezels with an alternative finish.

Switching it up
A key feature to highlight with the Milli downlight is the element of control offered in this one fitting. There is an option to seamlessly switch between 6.4W and 4W power outputs using a single switch to provide users with unprecedented control over their lighting environments.

Ability also exists to easily switch the colour temperatures between 2700K (Warm White), 4000K (Cool White) and 6500K (Daylight). This allows for effortless adaptation to varying lighting needs and makes is easy for the end-user to tailor their lighting to suit their individual requirements. Whether seeking a vibrant, well-lit atmosphere or a more subdued, energy-conscious ambiance, the Inceptor Milli ensures optimal flexibility.

Rotatable insulation cover
One feature setting the Inceptor Milli apart from many downlights on the market is the insulation cover which introduces a practical solution for installation challenges. The rotatable insulation cover allows installation of the downlights safely under insulation but also adjustment of the cover to allow for 5mm extra clearance.

On the standard/fixed Milli downlight, the insulation cover can be twisted to the up and down position and still fit in a 60mm void. The baffle version can only fit in a 60mm void when the insulation cover is down, and the plasterboard is a minimum thickness of 12.5cm.

By accommodating insulation materials more effectively, the Inceptor Milli ensures optimal performance. Unrestricted airflow around the fixture helps manage heat dissipation, contributing to the longevity and efficiency of the downlight. Our downlights are fire rated to 30, 60 and 90 minutes and also feature an Intumescent Strip which, when exposed to fire, expands to seal the gap between the light fitting and plasterboard.

Fast-fit connection
All Inceptor Milli downlights are supplied pre-wired with a fast-fit, 3-pole and loop flow connector, and Ovia also provides a loose push-fit flow connector in the box which ensures a quick and easy installation process.

Broad cut-out range
The Inceptor Milli has a broad cut-out range of 64mm to 75mm, which allows the downlights to be installed in a wide range of existing ceiling downlight cut-outs.

With the aim of providing a practical and cost-effective solution for a comprehensive range of lighting projects, Inceptor Milli is available in a convenient 10-pack box as well as in singles.

Sustainable Inceptor
The industry is currently evolving from a linear to a circular economy, and this will only intensify in the coming months and years. The emphasis is on reducing the amount of waste that goes to landfill by embracing a re-using, remaking/repairing and recycling mentality.
Sustainability drives all the decisions and actions made at Ovia. The business is committed to contributing to the transition to a circular economy and the aim is to make Ovia the market leader in sustainable lighting.

TM66 Assured Product Verification Scheme
Ovia is working towards its Inceptor luminaires scoring highly on the TM66 Assured Product Verification Scheme. This scheme is an innovative initiative developed and fulfilled by the Lighting Industry Association (LIA) and endorsed by CIBSE (Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers), and its aim is to advance circular economy practices within the lighting industry.

Inceptor products have been tested and scored very well on the TM66 Circularity Report. Testing involves the gathering of thorough evidence to support the specifications of the product range. Ovia uses the LIA to verify its TM66 results and ensure it has a consistent and accurate rating.

Ovia is a proud advocate of TM66 and has been given the opportunity to be a founding partner, demonstrating its commitment to a circular economy for the industry.
