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

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.

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?

Asked by: DM
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

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

What is the R factor of these? I didn't see that in the specs
Asked by: Janet
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.
