I have a customer who wants a recessed can installed in the shower. easy enough except that the ceiling in the shower is angled. I see that Halo makes a recessed can for this application but i cannot find an appropriate shower trim ring. I am leaning towards installing a standard 6" can with a shower trim but I am concerned the light spread will be all wrong. Any suggestions ??

I haven’t seen any line voltage slope ceiling housings that have a shower trim but you can use a 4” low voltage housing with a shower trim. The angle of the MR-16 lamp can be adjusted up to 35 degrees to compensate for the slope. I don’t know if Halo makes such a trim but Juno and Elco do. The Juno Lighting trim part number is 441W-WH.

Edited to add link.

Helo 134,

I had the same problem the other day. I hope this is not a job in Barrington your looking at. I'm a Juno person so I have not used these yet. Halo makes a sloped shower trim. You still are very limited as far as choices. If you want IC it has to be new construction. I only can find 6" also.

I don't know what housing you are planning or the cieling pitch but you might look at a Halo 170 or 170PS. It allows for a 60w a bulb.

Sparky, just use a regular can with a weatherproof trim, the angle doesn't matter because it's difused by the trim anyway.
