    That is the question.  I have fitted jc fireguard plus lights in my kitchen, currently available in sf. Can I insulate straight over them or do I need to fit a hood or similar?  Thanks

    As its an integrated LED lamp the heat generated is very low so I would say yes you can put insulation over them. I have handled their JCC 7 integrated LEDs after they have been on for an hour and they are barely warm.

    Whilst for some low power/low heat LEDs it may not be a fire hazard to insulate over them, it may significantly reduce the lifespan of the lamp as it can't disapate its own heat.

    Good point^^^^  and unphased, would they be a lot warmer if they had been buried in insulation ?
