Lotus Lights ultra thin recessed led lights are an energy efficient and convenient recessed light for residential and commercial design projects. The patent pending thin recessed led lights are available in several sizes and with square and round trims. The rigorously tested led lighting unit provides industry leading performance at a fraction of the price of competitors. Lotus lights super thin recessed lights allow you to place downlighting in areas normal recessed lighting could never fit. Lotus super thin lights do not require a bulky housing and are less than 2" high, allowing you to place them along ceilings and walls with little working height. The led light module features a convenient snap for locking the unit against drywall or sheetrock nd is available for new or existing construction. Super thin recessed lighting is available 4", 6" and 8" square and round models and in black or white trims.
For ceilings with a shallow plenum, ultra thin LED downlights are the ideal solution. They can be mounted in rooms or spaces where a recessed can or a taller fixture won't fit, such as under balconies and in elevators. In lobbies, hotel rooms, retail spaces, boutiques, and offices, ultra thin recessed lighting is a popular choice. You also get all of LED lighting's other advantages, such as a longer lifetime than other systems, lower maintenance costs, and energy savings. When replacing incandescent or halogen bulbs with LEDs, you won't need to run the air conditioning as much in the summer because LEDs emit less heat!
IC Rated Thin Recessed Lights
Since thin recessed lighting is IC rated for use in contact with insulated ceilings, no housing is needed. The ultra-thin LED downlights do not generate enough heat to necessitate a distance between the fixture and the insulation, necessitating the use of additional housings or fittings. This means they can be used in both renovation and new building projects. After the mounting hole is drilled, the installation takes just a few minutes. Some modules have a remote driver box, while others are a single unit, refer to the spec sheet when assessing the overall dimensions necessary. Installation instructions are available on each product page, as well as by phone, email, or live chat.
Since they will be in contact with water vapor, bathroom downlights must be damp position rated. Downlights and fixtures that are only rated for dry locations may be damaged by steam from the shower. To avoid problems, only wet-rated downlights can be used in a standing shower or, preferably, in any bathroom. Wet position downlights are ideal for bathrooms and can even be used directly over the tub, while damp rated downlights should be placed further away from any splashes or sprays. The UL listing can be found on the product page or in the spec sheet PDF.
Choosing the Right Color Temperature for Your Recessed Lighting
The color temperature of the downlights can have a significant impact on the feel of the space when selecting ultra thin recessed lighting for your bathroom. A bright 4000K LED downlight can help you wake up and get energized quicker, while a colder color temperature of 3500K or less can help you relax at the end of the day. As a result, morning people prefer cooler color temperatures, while night owls prefer warmer color temperatures. Regardless of which group you fall under, consider using an LED dimmer switch with your dimmable bathroom downlights to avoid being blinded or waking your spouse on late-night bathroom trips.
When it comes to selecting a color temperature for your ultra thin recessed lighting in the kitchen, personal preference and style aesthetic are good starting points, just as they are in bathrooms. Kitchen downlights in the 2700 Kelvin range are common, particularly when paired with brighter higher Kelvin lights for under cabinet or task lighting. This is particularly true in kitchens with natural wood cabinets, as warmer lighting brings out the wood tones, while bluer lighting can make the room feel cold and unnatural. A cooler Kelvin downlight about 4000 Kelvin, on the other hand, can prevent your kitchen from looking too yellow if it has white cabinets with granite countertops and blue accents.
2700 Kelvin is the way to go if you like the look of incandescent lamps. Consider kitchen downlights in 3000K, 3500K, or 4000K if you think incandescent bulbs are too yellow. If you prefer the look of halogen bulbs to incandescent bulbs, LED downlights with a color temperature of 3000 Kelvin are the nearest color match. We don't suggest going above a Kelvin temperature of 4000 degrees Fahrenheit because 5000 degrees Fahrenheit and higher is more normal in commercial spaces and can be jarring at night or first thing in the morning.
Frequently Asked Questions About Thin Recessed Lights
Q. What is the best way to mount LED ultra thin recessed lights?
A. Many LED recessed lights on the market today are DIY-friendly, with pre-labeled slots for color-coded Romex wires. Working with electricity, on the other hand, often carries some danger, so employ an electrician if you're not familiar with wiring.
Q. How far away from the kitchen cabinets should thin recessed lights be placed?
A. Recessed LED lights should be mounted 14 to 16 inches out from the upper cabinets' edge to completely illuminate countertop work areas. This provides the best lighting angle.
Q. Do ultra thin recessed lights need a separate housing?
A. Housing refers to the container that houses the lightbulb (or LED diodes), and today's recessed LED lights have thinner, lighter housings than older-style can lights. These new ultra thin led recessed lights essentially eliminate the housing and the danger associated with the additional installation and maintenance.
Q. Can I use thin recessed lights outdoors?
A. Consider all weather wet rated rust proof Indoor/Outdoor Recessed Lights if you need can lights for an outdoor environment. These lights won't rust or corrode thanks to aluminum cans and trim, making them ideal for use on the ceilings of covered porches or patios. They're built to replace older can lights and typically take 50W equivalent LED bulbs.
There's no need to tie the cans to the joists because the light comes with an easy-to-wire junction box and heavy-duty spring clips to keep it in place. Keep in mind that, while the lights are rust-resistant, they are not waterproof and should not be used in areas where they may be exposed to direct water spray, such as from a sprinkler.
For all weather outdoor recessed lighting refer to our outdoor recessed lighting section.
