No need for bulky tools holding you down. The RAPID 8 makes installing downlights easy! Just attach the RAPID connector to the cable for electrical connection and install into the cutout.
Universal Polarity Safe Technology has been built into the RAPID 8 to provide electricians with a downlight that is the most efficient of its kind to install.
The RAPID 8 ‘fangs’ make a safe connection with the cable’s conductors, engineered to slide beside each one making a secure and non-intrusive connection.

Introducing the RAPID 8 downlight from M-Elec,
designed to make the job of installation a great deal easier.

The Rapid 8 is the UK’s first tool-less install 8W 3CCT downlight. It uses our patented Fang® technology housed in a connector unit to pierce the TPS flat cable and make a safe, effective connection. On average the RAPID 8 downlight can be connected safely in under 6 seconds without any tools. Safe, efficient and tool-less.
