Scolmore adds essential fire rated LED downlight to Inceptor range

Originally launched in September 2016, Inceptor Pico was designed to provide contractors with a lower cost lighting solution for those applications not requiring a fire-rated fitting.   However, such has been the demand for a fire-rated version of this popular product, that Scolmore has listened to customers and the new model is now available and will sit alongside the original Pico.

The new Inceptor Pico FG fire rated fixed integrated LED downlight offers a cost-effective LED solution whilst producing an excellent light output for the power utilised.  It is ideal for installations where the void depth is limited and fire rating is required. 

As well a fire rating of 30, 60 and 90 minutes, Pico FG has a number of additional benefits.  It will be supplied with a pre-attached fly lead rather than terminals to make installation even easier and quicker and thus adding to time saved on the job by the contractor.  The Inceptor Pico is also compatible with Scolmore’s new Insulation Support Clip, which has been developed to allow installers to lay thermal insulation directly over the Inceptor Pico.  The Insulation Support Clip creates a 20mm air space above the driver which allows air to circulate and cool.  This allows the driver to dissipate heat more effectively and in turn allows the luminaire to run cooler.

The Inceptor Pico combines a number of other key features which sets it apart from competitor products. With its 50mm profile, the fitting is ideal for installations where the void depth is limited and it has an adaptable cut-out to fit apertures of between 70mm and 75mm in diameter.   The height of the spring brackets has been increased to allow the product to be installed in ceiling thicknesses of 36mm.

The new Pico downlight utilises a lens constructed from high quality polycarbonate and the frosted front provides improved beam angle resulting in smoother light distribution. A 90° beam angle produces a larger spread of light to provide more light coverage.   The fitting is also IP65 rated, which makes it dust tight and protected against low pressure water jets.  This means it is an ideal solution for kitchens, bathrooms and wet rooms.

It incorporates SMD LED technology, which produces high reliability performance and utilises very little power.  With an energy rating of A+ and an L70 LED lifetime of 20,000 hours, the Inceptor Pico FG requires zero maintenance and offers low energy consumption for the lifetime of the product. 

Available in a dimmable option as standard, the Pico FG can be easily switched or dimmed utilising a variety of methods.  It is suitable for use with Scolmore’s range of Click Smart intelligent automation products. It is offered in three of Scolmore’s most popular finishes – White, Satin Chrome and Chrome and in cool white and warm white options.
