Pot Lights - very little clearance for housing
Kyla
April 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
HELP! Our electrician just informed us that our builder did not leave enough clearance for potlights in our tray ceiling. The ceiling was supposed to go up an additional foot and now we are told it can only go up 6” if we still want pot-lights centered in the grids. Are there any good pot lights that have more of a shallow housing?????

The shallowest recessed fixture I know of is 5 1/2" tall. Made by Juno. I don't know if it is available in LED, but my hunch is no.

Hi there, check out Lotus lights here in BC. They are LED's. The housing is 1.5" high by 4" square. The lights themselves are 3/4" deep we put in the 4" round but they are available in 6" as well. Web site is Lotusledlights.com. Good luck.
