Dedicated new construction housing for use in insulated ceilings can be in direct contact with thermal insulation. Air-tight construction provides energy savings by reducing the flow of air through the ceiling.
CONSTRUCTION Plaster Frame: 0.040 steel frame with integral bar hanger brackets. Brackets can accommodate longer 27Ã¢â‚¬Â accessory flat bar hangers. Brackets run along all sides of frame to allow bar hangers to be run parallel or perpendicular to junction box.
Housing: 0.040 aluminum outer housing with white powder coated steel inner housing. Inner housing adjusts for ceiling thickness from 1/2" to 1-1/4". Inner housing supports the reflector assemblyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s plated spring steel blades.
Air Flow Restriction: Housing has factory installed gaskets to restrict airflow from room into ceiling plenum to <2CFM (cubic feet per minute) in accordance with ASTM-283 Air-Tight requirements.
Clearance: Ã¢â‚¬Å“ICÃ¢â‚¬Â Insulated ceiling housings are direct contact rated; no minimum clearance is required.
Bar Hangers: Two 13-3/4" to 24-1/2" adjustable bar hangers with captive nails are included on frame. Bar hangers are parallel to junction box
