Halolite Downlight Insulation Guard 220mm
Although my electrician does not think that these insulation guards are necessary with LED lamps, they do provide some additional security and allow loft insulation to run over the tops of the lamps. They seem disproportionately expensive for a simple sheet of bendable galvanised metal, but the Screwfix price is competitive.
Retrofitting some of them in a way which did not push the light fittings back through the ceiling was awkward, but could be achieved with a bit of patience.
These items do not weigh anything like the 700 kg suggested in the specification - the fabrication is very thin sheet metal.

Fast and easy to fit
Having a well insulated loft and fitting downlights is no issue. These were recommended by my electrician as easy for me to fit myself, he was not wrong,
Makes it safe to have a warm house with the lighting solution you want.

Maintains the gap
These are a cheap, lightweight way of keeping down lighters safely away from loft insulation. They leave ample room around the lights and the insulation drapes over them tidily.

Just what I needed, but.....
A bit pricey compared to online prices elsewhere (Â£3.89)
These were exactly what i needed. They come flat-packed but are very easy to fold into shape.
Loads clearance over the all of my down-lights, allowing me to fit 170mm top-up insulation.
They are much more expensive than online for the identical item but needed them there and then and on a SUNDAY!!!. Did the job
