Types of Downlights
These are the most basic and cheapest type of downlight and represent the most versatile type as they can be used in a variety of locations and rooms, except really for any of the special locations e.g. bathrooms and the likes where they would require an IP rating to prevent any water ingress. Once all the cables are run then the base of each loop is cut (if looped) and each end stripped off or if a single cable, the end of this is stripped and then a junction box or connector (usually called a chocbox) is used to connect the cable of the light to the supply and also the other end of the cable that runs to the next light. At this point you will have the connected downlights hanging from the ceiling. All that remains is insert the light into its place in the ceiling.
