How to tell if you already have downlights
Downlights are very common in Australian homes because they offer an aesthetically pleasing and fuss-free lighting system supplying a comfortable ambience. There’s a good chance you might have some in your rental or owned property, especially if you’re living in a newer-build.Call us Or view our home LED information
Distinguishing features of a downlight are:
- They’re recessed into the ceiling.
- They have two prongs on the back either win 2 sharp pins or flat, stubby terminals at the end. The former is an MR16 and the latter a GU10
- An MR16 downlight connects to a transformer.
- Both MR16s and GU10s have a face that is 16x 1/8th of an inch (2 inches or 50mm).
