The Curie Elite is a recessed fluorescent specifically designed for use in solid or modular ceiling types. The luminaire is SOLAS B15 approved and suitable for use in offshore accommodation modules for both task and emergency lighting. The body is made from zinc coated sheet steel and the diffuser from prismatic polycarbonate with textured side facing down. Where it meets the ceiling apeture the body is fitted with a flipper seal providing excellent sealing against surface irregularities. The range is flexible to allow luminaires to be recessed into either plasterboard and modular (600x600mm & 600x1200mm) ceiling types.
