Remodel Housings

In contrast to new construction housings, remodeling housings are appropriate when you have limited or no access to the space above a new fixture, such as in an apartment or a home without crawl spaces or attics above.

New Construction Housings

In contrast to remodeling housings, new construction housings are bulkier and need to be installed between joist beams or onto hangar bars and thus you need full access to the space above the fixture. This style is best used if you are building in a new space, gutting a room, or have an attic above or pop out ceiling, etc.

Non-IC Rated

Non-IC stands for: non insulation contact. Thus, non-IC-rated housings must be kept at least 3 inches away from any insulation.

IC Rated

IC stands for: insulation contact. Thus, IC-rated housings can come in direct contact with thermal insulation.

MR16 Halogen Bulb

MR 16 is a standard format for halogen multifaceted reflector light bulbs. MR16 lamps are regularly used in place of standard incandescent light bulbs as they harness and shoot light, resulting in less light loss than a traditional bulb. These are best used when you want focused light such as in a pendant over a countertop or an accent light on a painting.

DimmSystem Punkt 1 is a technologically advanced dimmer developed by Holtkoetter for use with a select number of its light fixtures. It features 'Point Dimming', with dimming control reduced to a single point on the arm of the fixture. A 'Soft On' feature turns the fixture on with a single touch and then gradually brightens to full brightness. A 'Soft/Delayed Off' turns the fixture off in the same way, dimming to 60% brightness and remaining at that level to allow you to exit the room; then gradually turns off. Pressing and holding the dimmer down activates a 'Dimming Cycle' which cycles the fixture through all dimming levels and stops at the light level of choice when the dimmer is released. DimmSystem Punkt 1 also includes a 'Tilt Switch' which will switch the light off if knocked over.
