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

Is the cover rigid or bendable?

Bendable and can be sliced for the wire

Answers

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.

These are expensive - could I just build a cover out of wood instead and make sure there is clearance between the wood cover and fixture?

Wood would cost more than these in material and time. The idea behind these is to air seal your home. Also if they were built or wood someone would likely think they could step there. Oooops

Answers

Yes, these covers should work well for that issue. My problem was the reverse, in winter time cold air in the attic in combination with warm air in the room caused condensation. Used this exact cover plus some "Great Stuff" foam sealant and problem solved. Also added some insulation around and above the cover for good measure.

What is the R factor of these? I didn't see that in the specs

Asked by Janet November 27, 2018
6
Answers

I guess I am the only one that understands Janet's question. HEAT. I think she wants to know about the thing heating up the Metal/Alum box and/or the Insulation, once it's covered, because of OLDER bulbs being used and gets hotter while running them than these newer low wattage types. Yeah, R factor deals with Insulation(per inch protection). I didn't see the max temperature these things can endure. Seen a YT Vid that said (Rockwell) same type, is good for 2,000 degrees F. Don't know about that. Maybe she meant the "retention of heat ". If I'm wrong sorry.

Non IC-rated lights?

Asked by Okie June 27, 2017

Answers

Helo Okie, Yes - these are non-burnable material and will provide an air gap between the fixture and insulation cover. The mineral wool is actual a by-product on steel slag and will not burn and is one of the best insulators out there. Jeff

Venting recessed light covers

Asked by Detan February 29, 2016

Answers

The item states that the it was not meant for incandescent bulbs. Yes, the heat buildup is very high with these types of bulbs. As you already know, those light cans warn the user not to cover the unit with insulation if these types of bulbs are to be used. If you are determined to use this product, you can cut holes easily into the product, but I would suggest that you get a IR temperature measuring device and do a product test.

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

Asked by scott January 15, 2016

Answers

This is an insulation barrier to keep air flow / transfer from house / attic through the light fixture, so it can likely be cut to fit as needed. You just need to ensure that no matter what you do, you maintain an air seal or the intended performance won't be achieved. Safety can only be determined by knowing the wattage of the bulbs you have in each fixture and the kind of heat it will generate. If you are using low wattage bulbs or LED lighting you should be fine. Otherwise, consult a certified electrician.

A Little expensive for a easy tear cover, That's why the four stars. 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 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.

Used to cover NIC rated recessed lights

Recently an electrician replaced a ceiling light in my kitchen with a pendant light and to do the job he had to work from the attic. When he came down from the attic he told me all the recessed lights in my kitchen were NIC rated (no insulation contact). He said he made sure they were all clear of insulation, but they should either be replaced or covered for long term safety. He recommended these covers as a method to cover them and he explained how to installed them. I ordered 5 of the covers and in about an hour I had all 5 installed. The covers are made of spun stone fire retardant material. They are flexible and can be shaped to fit over the light fixtures. They are big enough that they do not touch the fixtures. In my case about a 3 inch gap was left between the fixtures and the covers. I used great stuff fireblock spray foam to seal around the bottom of the covers where they touched the drywall and to fill any holes I cut for the electrical wiring to pass through.

Loved these can light covers! I installed them on 11 can lights in the attic and it took care of the white insulation dust problem in my house quite nicely! I reccomend also sealing all ceiling registers with duct sealant as well.

Easy to work with in tight spaces, using an expansive foam to seal the openings was a little more difficult that expected but it worked. The product is rock wool formed and flexible for the install. It might look like paper but when you get it in your hands its clearly not paper or cardboard based, but rather a form rock wool that is very easy to work with and fire resistant.
