I would appreciate some assistance regarding the following.
I have had an insulated pergola installed recently. Electrical wiring and cutouts for downlights have been done.
I have been advised by the electrician that unlike normal gyprock ceilings which have sufficient gaps for a plug base to be connected to the wiring, in this case, due to lack of space he will have to hardwire it to the downlight. Is this right?
In addition, he mentioned that the fan installation might not be suitable for such insulated ceilings due to the weight of the fan. Is there a maximum weight these versiclad panels can take and has anyone installed fans on such ceilings?
Thank you in advance.

We have downlights in our insulated roof and they hardwire them in (cut off the standard power cord) as the have the transformer in the back of the light.
We also have a fan without an issues, just make sure he doesn't fix straight to the bottom of the ceiling and instead runs threaded rod all the way through with a large washer/plate on the top
