Another option available for general purpose lighting, 5-inch recessed can lights rank in popularity with their six inch counterparts yet due to their smaller size they often offer more flexibility in application. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has established standards for luminaires; IEC 60598 includes two classifications for recessed fixtures. One is an IC ("insulation contact") rating for recessed luminaires with thermal insulation covering the luminaire while the non-IC rating is for luminaires not suitable to be covered with thermal insulation. This distinction determines the proper fixture for a specific installation and helps protect against fire hazards. IC rated luminaires are generally for residential use and non-IC rated ones are more often seen in commercial applications. Consisting of housing and trim, 5-inch recessed lighting is a versatile choice for both task and accent lighting, and one that serves well for both indoor and outdoor uses. At Destination Lighting, we have 5-inch recessed can lights finished in both brown/bronze and silver tones, made by respected manufacturers such as Juno Lighting and Designers Fountain. For added convenience and economy, we carry case backs of up to six fixtures. Choose from luminaires that are Energy Star certified or those rated to work in wet/damp locations. Whether you're looking for next-generation LEDs or a more traditional lighting platform, we can serve your lighting needs.
