IC Rating


The IC (insulation contact) rating is a measure used to determine whether a recessed downlight is suitable to come into contact with building insulation. 


LEDlux downlights have met the requirements set out in the AS/NZS standard 60598.2.2:2001 and are classified as IC rated. View our IC rated range below.


An IC rated downlight can come into direct contact with, and be abutted by building insulation.
