"IC rated airtight recessed lights" refers to lighting fixtures with two separate ratings. IC is an acronym for "insulation contact;" a recessed canister housing with this designation is rated for installation and use in ceilings below insulated attics. Airtight cans, which can be either IC or non-IC rated, seal out air, moisture and water with gasketed trims. Thus, they are important tools when lowering heating and cooling costs as well as preventing roof rot and other moisture problems. Destination Lighting offers dozens of airtight IC rated recessed lighting fixtures for new construction, retrofit and remodel applications. Choose from 6- to 3-inch housings and kits using LED, incandescent halogen or CFL lighting platforms. Many are Energy Star rated, assuring you of superior energy savings and service life while others are designed for use in wet/damp locations such as bathrooms, shower rooms and outdoors. You'll find IC rated can lights with trims finished in stainless, bronze/brown and satin nickel/satin chrome to traditional colors like white, black, grey and silver. We carry established brands like Cree, Juno, Progress, Recesso and others. For your economy and convenience, we have case pack IC rated recessed lighting kits available that contain up to six housings and trims.
