LED Downlights often comes with metal cylinder, mounted on or recessed into the ceiling and they are supposed to provide lights directed downwards. A recessed downlight should have proper regression or more described as “recessed” with the downlight.
A full, or “deep” fixture has regression that describes the light source being seated high up into the housing having a deep surrounding. A fully regressed downlight fixture is designed for a less distracting glare.
The light source is less visible when the downlight is being seen from afar. It is used for a more comfortable and pleasing visual experience spaces where it is installed.
Cheaper fixtures have little or no regression at all. You can put the light source near the ceiling plane. Take note that it can be dangerous for causing eye fatigue.
To acquire the best downlight fixture, you need to consider just a few things. First is the size that you need. Aperture sizes range from 2-inches up to 8-inches in diameter. The 6-inch size is generally functional in various ways and it would be a good choice for general illumination applications. Consider this if your space is from 8’-0” to 10’-0” ceiling.
There are smaller sizes but they can look a little bit ordinary. These can be used primarily for accent lighting with lower light level needs like those in the exhibits.
When installing your recessed downlights, you need to make sure that your product comes with a complete installation kit. The mounting tools should be there and you can only get these if you acquire a good brand.
Great downlight products are available either online or in physical stores. Some brands to consider are v Energy Star, Sunco, Hyperikon, and Torchstar.
