This three-inch recessed lighting housing is fully dimmable, UL listed for damp locations, and compatible with a wide array of decorative trims so you can hand-select your style. This recessed housing can be installed in an existing sheet rock ceiling.
My electrician was very concerned that these would not work in the ceiling of our older home. We have an old ceiling covered by a new 1/2in drywall ceiling which brings the total depth to an 1 1/4in. The housings held tightly and stayed in place.
This housing is not insulated ceiling rated. A non-IC housing requires minimum clearances of 3" from thermal insulation and 1/2" from adjacent building components. The housing does include a built-in junction box for wiring.
