This lightbar is mounted on a Bathroom ceiling.
Is this a bad idea? What do you think?

Bill;
I hear that style referred to as "Hollywood" lights. I've had a number of cases where I installed them surrounding a mirror.

Without getting off into a "rating, listing" type of thread here, I'll say it's has some practical pitfalls.

The first is that bulb heat will attract condensation , more prevalent in the position they are in

The second is simply head room. Head butting an element can do bad things to your makeup.

Sparky,

No, there's no headroom problem. I was wondering if the heat to the fixture wiring would be a problem. There is an insulated attic area above and it may not be 90C wiring. That was my concern.

Oy the heat! [Linked Image]

most fixtures have that insulation , if this does not then it may create problems.

That makes this more a "rating" "listing" Q

thanks for the hint....
