Havells Sylvania Launches Low Energy Syl:Fire Cfl


The leading global designer and supplier of lighting systems, Havells Sylvania has enhanced its successful SYL:Fire range of fire-rated downlights with the introduction of a low energy compact fluorescent option.

The new Syl:Fire CFL features a Mini-Lynx 9W ES fast start lamp, which consumes up to 80% less energy, lasts six times longer than a standard incandescent lamp and delivers excellent lumen output.

Launched in 2007 the Syl:Fire range has quickly proved popular with installers, specifiers and consumers. In order to set a high standard, the Concord design team created a sleek design and maximum protection from fire and noise with ease of installation and low maintenance.

Like all Syl:Fire downlights, the CFL version is manufactured from steel and incorporates the highest quality intumescent materials, which will expand up to 15-times their normal size under heat and pressure – a reaction that seals the fixture and ceiling cut out to stop all heat, smoke and flames from spreading. Additionally, tough stainless steel springs guarantee that the fixture will be held in place in the event of fire.

From an installer’s point of view, the innovative easy-wire connector that is another feature of the SYL:Fire range makes connection easy.

The Syl:Fire range has been tested by the British Research Establishment in accordance with the following Building Regulations:

  • Part B – fire safety – 30, 60, and 90 minute tests
  • Part C – resistance to containments and moisture
  • Part E – acoustic rating
  • Part L – air tightness

John Mercer, Havells Sylvania’s Marketing Manager for Hotel, Leisure & Residential fixtures, comments: “Syl:Fire has fast become the industry standard. It is the most compact and easy to install fire-rated downlight currently available in the UK and the addition of the low energy CFL option will extend its already wide appeal.”

Syl:Fire downlights are available in Fixed, Tilt, IP65 Halogen and CFL versions and a choice of white, polished chrome and polished brass finishes.
