Fire Rated Fixtures - Downlighting

We do not offer a fire rating on our down lights. In the industry it is typical to build a box around it using the same fire rated ceiling material in order to maintain the fire rating of the ceiling system. The other option is to use a prefabricated fire rated box, (supplied by others), in either case the recommended dimensions of the prefab box or the box built on site should be 6” larger than the fixture all the way around (no less than 3”).
