Austech is now the leading distributor forIsolite Downlight Guards in NSW. This innovative product protects homes from halogen related fires while also helping homes get the maximum value from their ceiling insulation.

Halogen downlights run at temperatures of around 300ºC. With many materials commonly found in roofs having an ignition point much lower than this, halogen lights are huge fire risk and cause millions of dollars in damage to Australian homes and businesses every year.

Its not just insulation that can catch fire, timber studs can ignite when exposed to high temperatures for extended periods. On top of that, leaves, dust and debris dragged in by vermin contribute to fires. The insulation clearing around halogen lighting often channels the debris straight onto the halogen.

Like a chain, the performance of insulation is only as good as the weakest link, which is a process known as thermal bridging. Current insulation standards require insulation to be cleared from around and above halogen lighting. Since heat will take the easiest path through the roof and into your home, it will bypass the insulation and simply go through the un-insulated halogen clearance.

Isolite Downlight guards bypass the current clearance laws by providing a heat barrier between the halogen and insulation. This eliminates thermal bridging and boosts your insulation values. Isolite is so effective that it can pay for itself in energy savings.

So when you get new insulation with the government rebate or use halogen downlights, make sure you add Isolite Downlight Protectors to protect your family and protect your investment.
