They look like they would save a lot of time and headach on rateed ceilings. I didn't check the cost of them to see how effective they are.

Roger, I'm not sure what the structure is, I just got the picture from the manufacturer's site.

I think they would be much nicer than building a 5/8 type X gypsum board box around them and fire caulking or taping the joints though.

I'm wondering how they get wired?

The website says they come with knockouts and also that they're airtight?

I have used something similar. They are airtight and have a thermal cut-out switch. If go over wattage on the lamp, they cycle on and off.

Thanks again Ryan.

Kelly, I'll find out how much they want for these and let you know how happy that camper would have been.

Any other ideas on a good way to get a fire rating on cans? The only fire rated cans I could find were Prescolite 5" with the fire box already built on it, Kind of like an IC2 (juno) but instead of AL box, drywall. They wanted $130 for those. I'll post a price for the EZbarrier when I get it.

I typically see the installer (or sheetrock guy) build a box around the lights with 5/8" type X gyp board.
