Fire Rated ceilings are to protect people who live on the upper floors or buildings by allowing them time to exit the building before a fire on the first floor reaches them.
Using regular recessed housings is not allowed unless a 2nd fire proof floor is created or the recessed housings are fire proofed and meet UL 1598.
This FireBox meets UL 1598 and has a 2 hour fire rating.
Most fire rated housings are many times the cost of regular recessed housings. PEMBA sells this Firebox recessed housing at a very affordable price.
Contact us to order your housings so that the fire marshall or city inspector does not shut down your job due to not meeting this safety rating.
