Everything-in-the-Box LED Recessed Downlight Kits Simplify Installation

Good news for contractors and home do-it-yourselfers looking for a fool-proof way to add LED lighting to your next project. Topbulb now offers convenient LED recessed downlight kits that include everything you need to simplify fixture installation. These kits are designed for both new construction and retrofits in either insulated (IC) or non-insulated ceilings.

Each kit includes a sturdy galvanized steel housing, trim designed for a sleek and secure fit, all required connectors and cables, a hole cutting template and a high quality LED bulb.

The steel housing has a wide flange to easily cover any variations in the hole cut. A self-positioning screw in system allows for secure installation in ceiling drywall up to 1-1/4” inch thick. Since screws do not protrude through the back of the housing, the fixtures can be installed in more restricted spaces. The housing also utilizes a mounting clip system that expedites the installation.

The white trim pieces feature fitting plates with slanted corners that allow for a quick connection to the housing and a solid fit to the ceiling.

Electrical connections have also been designed for fast, simple installation. A residential electric cable clamp located behind the knock-outs secures the cable safely in place without the need for a grommet. Wire-to-wire connectors simplify connection of the fixture to the main power supply.

Topbulb’s kits include 3” and 4” aperture options with an adjustable gimbal trim. The 3” kit includes a 6 watt ES16 LED bulb with a GU10 base. This line voltage LED has light distribution similar to an MR16 flood. The 4” kit includes a 7 watt PAR20 LED bulb with a medium screw base. Both of these professional grade bulbs provide stable light output and high color rendering over a 35,000 hour rated life.

The LED kits have an Energy Star qualified compliance and come with a 5-year warranty.
