The H7ICAT is an Air-Tite ceiling housing designed for new construction installations where the housing will be in direct contact with ceiling insulation. The Air-Tite housing prevents airflow between the attic and living areas. The built in integral thermal protector provides positive protection against over lamping. This housing also features an adjustable socket bracket to assure proper and consistent lamp positioning. Pre-installed and captive bar hangers on the housing can be positioned to any point within a 24 in. joist space. These bar hangers also fit onto T-Bars for easy installation into drop ceilings. UL approved and CSA certified, the H7ICAT with its ease of installation makes a great addition to any home.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Will work for remodel I installed 4 of these into existing sheet-rock and they worked great. Since I have access to my attic, I just planned the layout around joists, cut holes, placed cans in holes, and nailed in place. I did have to tin-snip some tin where you would nail from the bottom, but with existing sheet-rock just cut off the tabs. These cans have a lot of nice features for the price and worked great. I did have to caulk around the openings as the tin-work has some gaps, but not a big deal. Planned layout and installed 4 working cans in one day. Not a bad DIY project if you have the skills for the drill. December 15, 2009

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 6 IN. RECESSED Can Been waiting for Led bulbs to come down in price. Found them (LED lights)on sale for $15.99 and this is what i put them into. Worked out great. February 3, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product and great price Used this housing with one of the led shower trims to illuminate the shower in my master bath. Everything worked well, installed easily (I had attic access from the master bath closet), and came out looking good. My only complaint is some of the thin portions of foam which reduce airflow between the housing and attic space are easily damaged or removed, so take care when handling and installing to maintain the integrity.
