Hi all, I hope you can help.

I have recessed downlights throughout my duplex apartment, and in the bathroom upstairs there are 4 recessed downlights in the bathroom. These are identical to the rest, but as they're in a wet zone they have glass discs which are the same size as a standard spotlight GU10/MR14.

The glass is so old and I want to replace it as it's not clear and instead old halogen bulbs have burned onto it. I cannot find these glass discs anywhere and hoped you might have some suggestions?

The nearest downlight picture, which is similar but not exact, is this: https://cdn.remodelista.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Recessed-ceiling-lights-Remodelista-2.com_.png

Do you know where I can find these discs? The nearest I can find, but they're not glass is, https://www.amazon.co.uk/3mm-Clear-Acrylic-Perspex-discs/dp/B01F1C1PTG/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1519506278&sr=8-2-fkmr1&keywords=clear+discs+downlight+perspex

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance,
Dan

Can you post a picture of your lights? the picture you link to (shown below) shows the bezel.

I have a few clear glass discs in my shed that came out of old kitchen cabinet downlights - they are the same size as MR16 bulbs, I've just checked.

Send me a Private Message with your name & address and I will post you four on Monday.

What, just because OP used the word "duplex"?

Username has UK in it and Amazon link is UK site - anyway, we're in touch.

That's good news, but i still don't see what the bezels have to do with it. (That's what the OP posted)
