Downlight Standards Downlight Standards

In 2012 the regulations changed slightly for downlight products, and now any downlight products sold are subject to the AS/NZS60598.2.2 New Zealand only 'Amendment A' standard, which requires all new downlight products to be listed under one of the 5 new classes, listed below. A downlight that does not bear one of the markings below cannot be installed near insulation, and therefore cannot be used for residential purposes

Downlight Classes:
Class Markings Description Residential Commercial
A cooler running closed abutted recessed luminare where fixed insulating material (of the downlight manufactures specifications) can be abutted to sides YES YES
A closed abutted recessed luminare where fixed insulating material (of the downlight manufactures specifications) can be abutted to sides YES YES
Recessed luminare where fixed building insulation material (of the downlight manufactures specifications) can cover the recessed luminare YES YES
Recessed luminare where fixed building insulation material can cover the recessed luminare YES YES
A recessed luminare where building insulation material must not cover or come in contact with any part of the luminare NO YES

Downlight Clearances:
When installing a downlight, take note of the minimum clearances that will be detailed in the installation instructions. They are the minimum distances between the downlight and certain building elements. LED downlights typically have very small clearance requirements because they generate much less heat than incandescent and halogen downlights.

SCB Side clearance to building elements
HCB Height clearance to building elements
MIC Minimum clearance above building insulation for ventilation
Insulation Type Class markings and Manufacturers specifications dictate what type of insulation is safe for each class of downlight
