Any one know of a shower/light combo rated for an enclosed shower. The tile installer is calling it steam rated? I have 4" Juno cans and shower rated trims. My understanding is they are not rated for fully enclosed showers?

I believe a fixture for a wet location and a totally enclosed trim with a gasket will do fine.

If this helps you any. This could be a regular can but since they (sauna company) sells it we can assume it is steam rated?????

Be kind to your neighbor, he knows where you live

Niko, That looks like the Juno can and trim I have. Which I have since found out is wet location listed. As for the fan I'm going with a remote unit, will use 1 opening for shower and 1 for bathroom itself. I did find a fan/ light that was wet rated also. I'd be interested in any other ideas if anyone has one.

I believe if the fixture is rated for wet location, I don't see why it couldn't be used. The manufacture might want the fixture to be GFI protected though. It has to be installed as per the manufacture specs..

I was thumbing through the Dale Electric catalog and I saw a few fan/light combos that were "wet location" rated and they did say with GFCI right in the ad.
