LINEAR RECESSED LIGHTING Q & A
What is linear recessed lighting?
Linear recessed lighting is a type of architectural lighting
in which linear channels, usually in straight (linear) four-feet
standard sections, can create any desired linear design, which are recessed into the ceiling, wall or floor. The purpose is to accentuate modern residential or commercial architectural features and or provide balanced general lighting. Available in LED lighting technology, linear recessed lighting applications range from wall wash and wall graze to downlight.
Can I connect linear recessed lights together?
Yes. Our linear recessed lights can be connected for seamless runs of any length if ordered as a continuous run.
What are the different linear recessed lighting mounting options?
Our linear recessed lights can be installed in ceiling T-bar and screw slot applications, hard ceilings, such as drywall with flange or flangeless, in soffits, in the wall or in the floor.
Can I create shapes with linear recessed lighting in my ceiling?
We use 90° as well as 135° corner joins to create a variety of geometric shapes. Standard shapes range from squares to crosses, rectangles and octagons. You can also draw a desired shape using corner joints (see above) which we can custom fabricate.
Can I install linear recessed lights on the wall and ceiling?
Yes. Our recessed lighting can be installed in the wall or ceiling as well as along a seamless run that can start from the ceiling and run down the wall.
What is wall wash linear recessed lighting?
Wall wash linear ceiling LED recessed lights have a reflector inside, directing light at an angle onto the wall to illuminate art, displays or signage.
When these are installed, will you just see the strip of light? Or is there a border around it?
We carry both borderless, also known as flangeless or trimless, linear recessed lighting as well as linear recessed lights with a border trim, also known as flanged.
What lengths can I get linear recessed lighting in?
Our linear recessed lighting comes in the standard four-foot and eight-foot lengths. However, we can also provide custom lengths, depending on the lighting fixture.
Outdoor Linear Recessed Lighting
UL Listed for Damp Locations
Luminaires that are “Suitable for Damp Locations” are approved for areas that are regularly exposed to moisture and condensation. These fixtures can safely handle limited amounts of moisture on, in, and around their electrical components. This rating also encompasses areas that are partially protected from water. However, it does not cover direct water contact.
Damp location listed LED lights are frequently used indoors for laundry rooms, over showers and bathtubs, utility rooms, unfinished basements, and similar areas. They can be used outdoors in areas that are protected, such as covered patios or porches, as these locations are usually not at risk of direct rain or snow exposure. These lights typically cost more than dry location lights because more advanced construction is required to meet the higher safety standards.
UL Listed for Wet Locations
Fixtures and lamps that are “Suitable for Wet Locations” can be installed anywhere that liquids might come in direct contact with the electronics. It could be a slow drip, a strong flow or anything in-between. They are typically used outdoors for things such as site lighting, wall packs, open-air decks, walkway lights, gazebos, signs, and holiday lights.
