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?????

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.
