EGO by Megaman is a new fully fire-rated, integrated LED

downlight, tested to provide fire protection for 30, 60 and 90-minute ceiling constructions. Also featuring in-built colour change technology, dimming capability and an optional tilt bezel for the 5W version. For indoor use, TEGO comes IP65

fixed and matte white as standard but it can be altered to compliment any building interior with the use of an interchangeable twist and lock bezel, available in chromium and brushed nickel. While TEGO is supplied fixed, the 5W option can be adjusted to tilt using the ingenious tilt bezel, which is also available in a choice of finishes. Not only do the bezel options provide a choice of colour schemes and tilt capability but they are also a benefit for wholesalers who will be able to stock a multitude of finishes with minimal stock lines and space. TEGO downlights are not only triac

dimmable, but through the integration of Megaman’s Colour Changing Technology (CCT), end users are able to easily switch between 3000K warm white and 4000K cool white colour temperature. With separate terminal blocks offering Loop in/Loop out wiring, TEGO is also quick and easy to install. TEGO has a lamp life of 30,000 hours

and is currently available in both 5W, and 7.5W options, producing 420 and 610 lumens respectively. Glen Krise, managing director of

Megaman UK comments: “We are delighted to bring the fire-rated TEGO to the UK market as it offers flexibility of design and set-up with its choice of bezels options and adjustable colour temperature. Furthermore, installers will benefit from the wide variety of installation possibilities met by the adaptable TEGO downlight and its accessories.” By setting environmental management as one of the company's highest priorities, Megaman is focusing on eco-friendly
