Carida Backlit LED Panel – TPb Conformity

As part of our commitment to bringing only top quality LED fittings to the UK market, we commissioned the Lighting Industry Association (LIA) to put our Carida LED Panel through its rigorous testing to check the conformity of the diffuser to the TPb fire rating.

For those unsure of what this means, we’ll explain here:
TP means thermoplastic, and TP materials, such as polycarbonate (PC), acrylic (PMMA) and polystyrene (PS), are commonly used as diffusers in light fittings. In the UK Building Regulations, these are classified as TP(a) or TP(b) and when a lighting diffuser is deemed to be part of a ceiling it must be made of either TP(a) or TP(b) rated material. No other thermoplastic material may be used.

We are very pleased to say that our Carida Backlit LED panel passed the tests and we can now give you the reassurance of its TPb conformity, for you peace of mind.
