Product Overview

  • Protects light fixtures
  • Prevents air leakage
  • Recessed Light Cover
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

Is the cover rigid or bendable?

Is the cover rigid or bendable?
Asked by: newhand
It is somewhat flexible, reminds me of a pressed recycled paper material, and is easy to cut.

If we only have a room fan at the center of the room, do i need to place this on the top in the attic (at the box) prior to adding additional Insulation? Or am I okay to just add insulation since it's just a fan junction box (not a recessed light box)?
Asked by: Ian
Depends on the manufacturer of the fan. Some light boxes (incandescent bulbs) and I would imagine some home electrical items can give off a large amount of heat over time and warn the user not to cover the rear of the unit with insulation. From my understanding, this product was meant for light cans.

I have condensation forming from my light can because of the hotness in ceiling and coldness in the room believe. I think that creating an airtight light cover over top of the can will reduce the condensation and the potential for mold. Is that an intended use case for this cover?
Asked by: Brandon
The can seals out the air flow from the ceiling/attic and allows you to place insulation on top of it because it’s fire proof.

Asked by: KH
The light in your picture looks like an IC rated and sealed light already - why are you covering it with a Tenmat cover?

I discovered while in the attic two recessed light boxes that were open to the environment. Here are two sources of heat exchange, in plain words, potential areas of heat loss. The product is relatively strong, and so was held in place with spray foam. Product put my mind at ease for generally a reasonable price.

Did the job to cover my recessed ceiling lights from the attic side, stopped the winter drafts in the attic from coming through the lights. Also, you need to foam around the bottom of the cover to the attic floor/boards and any tears you make in it for wires to get a air tight seal. I sealed with foam about 3 covers per can, ( I foamed a lot, about 2/3" around the base. Tip: after you foam, try not to disturb the cover, Cover will break foam seal if bumped, until it dries/cures its hard as a rock.

I expected to seal the cover to the drywall but felt the flange was too small and a bit flimsy to do that. All in all it gave me the protection I needed to prevent contact with my recessed light fixtures. Would buy again.
