    downlights and loft insulation 23rd Nov 07 at 9:36 PM
    Have downlights in my bathroom upstairs, leading into the loft.
    The loft seems to have lots of insulation, except where lights are have big gaps.
    However i understand that if cover them over they become a fire hazard, but must be losing lots of heat through them.
    Ive been told to put a big plant pot over them or buy a fire hood.
    Anyone have recommendations and where can i get these hoods from.

    Dont really want to change lights for retardent ones
    A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist.

    A young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent,
    the helpless, the powerless, in a world of criminals who operate above the law.
