Product Overview

The Tenmat FF130E Recessed Light Cover is made out of a fire safe material and was specifically designed to protect your light fixture from insulation in the attic and to stop unwanted air leakage through your recessed light. The FF130E has been fire and thermally tested in accordance with UL1598 and IEC 60598-1 and can be used with IC, as well as Non-IC rated recessed lights (See installation instructions for maximum lamp wattage and types). Most recessed lights are not compatible with insulation and oftentimes start cycling on/off after they have been buried with cellulose, foam, fiberglass, etc. The lights' malfunction is a concern and a safety hazard. Pushing the insulation away is not an effective solution since it creates air passages in the building envelope and wastes energy. According to the department of energy, recessed lights account for 50% of the total thermal losses of a ceiling. Tenmat, the leading manufacturer of high temperature engineering materials and fire protection components for recessed lights specifically developed the FF130E Recessed Light Cover to solve this problem and protect lights from insulation while simultaneously allowing the insulation to be continuous and uninterrupted over the whole area of the ceiling. Due to this improved air tightness and insulation, Tenmat users experience significant energy savings, noise reduction and draft reduction. The FF130E covers are fit within seconds and do not require any assembly or special tools.

  • Thermally tested according to UL 1598 for usage with IC and non-IC rated lights
  • Fire tested in accordance with IEC 60598-1
  • Saves energy by eliminating draft through your recessed light fixture
  • Keeps flammable insulation at a safe distance from hot recessed lights
  • Easy to fit - no assembly required

Customer Questions & Answers

Are these recessed light covers one hour fire rated?

I am installing LED slim surface mounts (9-12 watts) but I don't have 9 inches of clearance. I have 7 3/4 inches and I want to also put in 3 inches of Roxul Safe and Sound insulation for deadening the sound between floors. Will this work in this situation? My LED lights need 1 1/2 - 2 inches of clearance.
Asked by: SilverFox
Hello Silverfox, Although they meet IEC 60598-1 and UL 1598, Tenmat makes a FF109 and FF109x2 for 1 hour and 2 hour fire rating respectively (in various sizes for different cans and speakers). The material is very fire resistant as it is many from mineral wool (produced from steel slag heated to 2000 degrees. Jeff

what if the my lights are off centered between the beams?

as a result these light covers wont be "centered" on the lights, and my non-ic lights will be within 1-2 inches of one side of this tenmat cover. is that ok/safe?
Asked by: scott
Hello Scott, You should always allow for 1" of free space around the fixture and the light. It doesn't matter if they are "uneven" as long as they maintain the 1" minimum rule.

Can 12" of blown insulation go on top of these covers?

Asked by: phillyborn
Hello Phillyborn, Yes, this cover is compatible with sprayed foam mineral wool, fiberglass and blow-in cellulose and can be buried in insulation. Just be sure that you followed the can light's "per manufacturer's instructions" for lamp size and clearances around the housing. There should be at least a 1" gap all the way around the cover and the housing. Jeff

Will this fit over a 4" low voltage can light? They are kind of long...

Asked by: jason
Hello Jason, Yes, easily. The INTERNAL dimensions are incorrect on the website which has been reported. The internal size is 15" x 14" x 9" high. It can easily be cut down as it is a soft, light weight material. Jeff

The Tenmat Recessed Light Covers are an excellent value, and large enough to easily cover my fixtures. I installed five of these over my existing non-IC rated fixtures; making cuts in the sidewalls to accommodate flex and wiring. This gave me a tight fit with the ceiling sheetrock. I then sprayed fire retardant foam to seal the cover to the sheetrock. They are strong enough to handle the load of R60 insulation. I highly recommend this simple but effective cover for all recessed light covers. Tenmat makes a larger size if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to install I had to cut a space for the wires but over all it sat between the boards and I covered the sides with insulation and then with a larger roll over top. You would be amazed at how much cold air was coming out of my 8 lights. I covered them and felt nothing blowing out of them now. Should always do this for your lights, I know I will.

I ordered 22 of these but it turned out only 17 downlights were accessible in our attic. They had the correct fit over the height of the lights. I made cuts with a box knife to allow for electrical cables. Plus I needed to make 4 slits at the base to accommodate the fixture hangers between the joists. Once the Tenmat cover was seated flat on the drywall ceiling, I used "great stuff" to permanently seal the bottom lip to the drywall, and also sealed the slit I made for electrical wiring. Finally the attic insulation that I had shoved back for the installation process was pulled back into place. With the cover in place, the insulation fit snugly against the cover and the draft through the light fixture was eliminated. This all started when the local utility did an energy audit of our home and pointed out that our downlights were acting like holes sending warm and/or cool air directly into the attic. Although a pricey solution, I highly recommend these covers versus other alternatives I had considered.

A few notches to clear electrical connections and brackets. I used Great stuff fire stop to seal those holes and attach to sheetrock. Hardest part is cleaning around fixtures in attic. Completely stopped cold air coming out of attic through light fixtures.
