Product Overview

  • New construction, for installations with open ceiling access
  • Housing can touch and be covered with insulation
  • Wet location approved, when used with select showerlight trims
The Halo H550ICAT is a dedicated 5 in. aperture LED new construction IC, AIR-TITE housing for use with Halo RL56 and RL7 LED retrofit modules, and ML56 LED Downlighting System of LED Light Modules and LED Trims. H550ICAT is designed for use in insulated ceilings where it will be in direct contact with insulation. It is an AIR-TITE, certified ASTM-E283 housing designed to prevent air flow between occupied spaces and unconditioned areas. The LED connection is non-screw base to preserve the high efficacy rating of the luminaire as used with the compatible Halo or All-Pro LED modules, lighting engines and trims.
  • Air-Tite rated design meets restricted air flow code requirements which prevents airflow between attic and living areas and saves on both heating and air conditioning costs
  • Die-formed housing and plaster frame
  • Compatible with a wide variety of 5 in. LED retrofit trims but is best with Halo quality RL, RA, SLD, LT, SMD and ML series models (Bulb free with some having a 45 year LED lifespan)
  • LED module connection: this non-screw-base LED connection preserves the high efficacy rating of the luminaire
  • Energy star, title 24 and IECC qualified when used with select LED Halo trim modules
  • Slide-N-side junction box: connectors allow non-metallic sheathed cable for both U.S. and Canada to be installed without tools
  • Pass-N-Thru bar hangers: fixture has pre-installed nails that easily installs in regular lumber, engineered lumber and laminated beams
  • Listed for damp location when used with dedicated wet rated recessed lights
  • New construction recessed can, ideal for those who have easy access to their ceilings
  • Insulation contact rated: designed for insulated ceilings where contact is necessary
  • Features an integral thermal protector to guard against misuse of insulation materials and improper lamping

Questions & Answers

what is the maximum distance between ceiling joists? I have 21', will that work?

what is the maximum distance between ceiling joists? I have 21', will that work?
Asked by: Steve
Yes. You can position the housing at any point within a 24 inch joist span.

Can this housing be put on a dimmer swich?

Asked by: beau
Dear valued consumer, the housing itself does not matter, it depends on what type of light option you choose. Since this is an LED housing, it does not accept screw base light options. You would need to use an LED retrofit with this housing and all of the Halo RL56 LED retrofits are dimmable.

H550 5 in. Aluminum LED Recessed Lighting Housing for New Construction Ceiling, T24, Insulation Contact, Air-Tite is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The romex connector tabs save a lot of time with the install The romex connector tabs save a lot of time with the install

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LED specific housings I purchased these for Halo RL560WH led lights. They use a quick connect plug to connect them. These housings have all the adjustments you need. Although you can use 6" housings for these led lights, the trim ring will not cover the hole by much, so the 5" housing is a better choice. The only reason I downgraded the rating to 4 stars is that these are a few dollars more than the standard housings.
