AS NZS 5110 Safety Standard comes into play when a builder or home builder requires the following features in the building and thermal envelope of the building:
- Fire Rating
- Draught Proofing
- Sound proofing
So if you have any need for the above features on your ceiling system when you have installed recessed lighting, your fittings must be compliant to AS/NZS 5110 Safety Standard. AS NZS 5110 Safety Standard has been applied to the Efficiency Matrix Loft Mitt in abnormal conditions, to enable a sound proofing and up to 2-hour fire rating while also providing an install from below the ceiling up a 95mm cut out and an R-value built into the material. We have LED Lighting Partners to enable compatibility with lighting, ensuring the warranty of lighting is not voided from the installation. For more information on the Loft Mitt go here Loft Mitt Product Page. The Loft Mitt has been tested thoroughly submerged in 400mm of insulation enabling energy efficiency benefits for heating and cooling.
