Commercial LED Recessed Lighting
Commercial LED Recessed Lighting is designed to replace CFL, Halogen and even Metal Halide recessed lighting inside recessed cans. Our metal halide recessed lighting retrofit kits have been installed in many commercial and industrial facilities – some even running 24/7 – and have been a great alternative to metal halide bulbs.

Frequently Asked Questions
If this is your first time purchasing recessed lighting, we’ve curated a list of questions to help you find the right solution for you. For more information on our products, please contact us on (888) 423-3191. A dedicated lighting expert will do their best to support you in this process.
What’s Commercial LED Recessed Lighting?
Recessed lighting are light fixtures or bulbs installed inside a ceiling. So that the fixture’s face is flush with the ceiling surface.
Is a Recessed Light a New Fixture or a Retrofit Kit?
It can be both. For new fixtures, think of a recessed canopy light fixture installed at a gas station. For retrofits, think of metal halide can lights installed in a commercial building, like an airport.
What Is the Difference Between Recessed, Can, Soffit and Down Lights?
For the most part, they are all the same type of light. Although soffit lighting can also include surface mount fixtures. These are different terms people use to describe a form of recessed lighting.
Do Soffit Lights Need to Be Fire Rated?
To answer this, we recommend you check with your local building code. For the most part, having fire rated soffit lighting fixtures is an extra level of protection and not a bad idea. There will be an added cost for this.
When Does It Make Sense to Use Recessed Lighting?
This is a style of lighting that allows for a clean look. The light and fixture hide inside the soffit or ceiling. This leaves a clean-looking presentation. The second reason is when there are height restrictions.
BEFORE YOU BUY
How Do You Determine the Ideal Spacing for Recessed Lighting?
The best way to determine the ideal spacing for recessed lighting is to perform a lighting plan. It will give you the best idea of how far to set the lights apart from each other.
Do You Have Color Changing Recessed Lights?
Yes, we do.
Do You Have Recessed Lighting That Is NSF Rated?
We don’t. There has been no demand for this capability.
Can You Use Commercial LED Recessed Lighting Outdoors?
Yes they can. This assumes the existing recessed fixture is already IP rated.
Do You Have a Flange (Ring) That Will Attach to Your Light and Cover Up the Existing Hole?
We do not. Our standard commercial and industrial recessed options are for 6” or 8” cans. Or, we have some high performance options that will work in larger fixtures. You’ll find these used in airports or other types of applications.
Will Commercial LED Recessed Lighting Fit Inside My Existing 6 Inch or 8 Inch Can Housing?
They should. We have models designed specifically for that application.
FIXTURES AND FITTINGS
What Is the IP Rating for Soffit Lights?
IP ratings can range from IP65 to IP68. The higher the number, the more waterproof the fixture is. IP65 should be enough for soffit lights.
Are Your Recessed Lights Dimmable?
Yes, we have dimmable models.
Does Your Recessed Lighting Have a Pigtail or Quick Connects?
They do, depending on the model you choose, we offer both.
Are Recessed Lights Prone to Overheating?
Some can be, but that’s a function of the fixture and the installation. A good recessed fixture should not overheat.
How Do You Install Commercial LED Recessed Lighting?
It is an easy installation done by any electrician or electrical contractor.
How Do You Mount Soffit Lights?
There is nothing difficult about installing soffit lights. All our recessed fixtures have instructions. Any qualified electrician can easily install them.
How Do You Wire Soffit Lights?
The installation is simple. We either supply a screw in socket adapter or the fixture includes 3 wires, line, neutral and ground.
