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 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Installation of IC AIR-TITE HOUSING Easy to install, constructed well and works as it should. January 6, 2015
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
