I like Reno's answer. Someone may even make full spectrum CFLs.

12 X 16? Those are dressing rooms- any windows? If you hang clothes in a room, does it become a closet automatically? I think the AHJ is the final answer- just ask them.

I like macmikeman's comparisons. I think I'll use that analogy for stubborn customers in the future, with your permission of course.?

A little too pricey??????????

If this woman can afford two closets in a master bedroom that are 16x12 with 11' ceilings.......she can afford the right trims

This home owner is really cool she understands that I am limted by the code on things that can be done. She just asked that there be lots of lights in all walk-in closets. If I put shower trims on these Juno can I have to install 40 watt bulbs instead of 65 watt with the baffel trims. Money is really not a concern to her, this house is about 10,000 sq ft under air. Over 6 million dollars.

Get a copy of the plans, cross out the word "closet" whereever it appears, ans write "dressingroom."

The size of a room does not designate what type of room it is. The prints will clearly designate the type of room. The room in question will require closed type incandescent fixtures. If she does not want the recessed shower trim type, then use your marketing skills to recommend some other type of legal fixture and maybe you will become the hero instead of the goat.

Flourescent lamps in an incandescent fixture would not pass inspection either. Any inspector that thinks he can change the code because he thinks so should not be inspecting as he is a menace to the industry.

You may not like what I have to say, but it is a free country. [Linked Image]

Semi off-topic, but why on earth does ANYONE need that big a "closet?"

If you are going to use 6” lights use Juno IC-2 housings with 242 trims. They use 75PAR38 lamps.
