Unobtrusive yet stylish, recessed aka canister lighting offers vast flexibility in both home and office applications. Traditional 6-inch recessed lights can be utilized for both task and accent downlighting and easily work in combination with other types of lighting platforms. Lighting designers can create exotic and appealing effects by merely using canister lighting with various wattages and lamp sizes. The two separate components of 6-inch recessed lighting are trim and housing. Electrical codes require that installers be aware of the proper application of "insulation contact" (IC) and non-IC housings in order to prevent flammable material from contacting hot lighting fixtures. Lighting designers recommend that for a typical eight foot ceiling, 6-inch recessed lights be spaced at intervals of not more than seven feet apart. Destination Lighting stocks dozens of 6-inch recessed lighting elements including kits, trim and recessed canister housing. We also have retrofit modules for updating inefficient fixtures or repurposing lighting needs. Choose from a variety of finishes such as satin nickle/satin chrome, stainless, iron, bronze/brown tones and a spectrum of both primary and designer colors. You'll also find specialized items engineered for use in wet/damp locations as well as those that are highly energy efficient or are bulb-dimmable with versatility for a wide range of lighting applications.
