What is New Construction vs. Remodel?

New Construction– Ideal for unfinished ceilings or for projects with extensive remodeling that require a replacement ceiling, and for existing ceilings where attic crawl space is sufficient to allow easy access for installation. Includes bar hangars to connect to your framing.

Remodel (sold separately) – These cans are inserted into pre-existing ceilings. There is no need to redo your entire ceiling. Great for limited access to crawl space.

Does this recessed can come with an LED?

They include a junction box but no LED light. You will need to purchase the LED separately.

How do I secure your New Construction Cans?

Sunco New Construction Cans include bar hangers that are secured to framing prior to installation of drywall and ceiling materials. Also suitable for suspended ceilings. Quickly install them into framing during buildout of an existing or new building. Make sure your hangars are level with the bottom of your joists.

Are Sunco recessed cans airtight and IC rated?

Yes, these cans are air tight and IC Rated for all your commercial lighting needs. Air Tight – Our cans meet ASTM Standard E283-04. The air tight design keeps air conditioning and heating from leaking through the housing. IC Rated – Our cans are IC Rated, which means they are thermally protected and designed to be installed in the ceiling surrounded by insulation.

Pros & Cons

Pros

Nice recessed light fixtures. These are excellent fixtures at $10 each. We used them under our waterproof deck with Sunco's LED inserts (2700K, also available on Amazon in a set of ten for $75), and the two components plug directly together. They mount easily, and include small nails in each leg that work well even with I-joists. The metal, adjustable mounting slides can be placed on any of the four sides of the fixture, and they can be easily snapped shorter for mounting between joists on 12 inch centers. As with most new fixtures, they come with press-in electrical connectors that handle various gauges of wire and make wiring extremely quick, assuming you like thee connectors. Personally, I'm not convinced yet of their long-term viability, so I chose to clip them off and use tried and true wire nuts, taped over with electrical tape, as I have done for several decades without a single issue, ever. But if you like them, you can get all ten fixtures mounted and wired up very quickly. I'll definitely use these fixtures for future work!

Easy to install and adjust for narrow joists. I've installed 20 in a remodel 900 sq foot small apartment. I had to shorten several of the sliders and it's easy. Just slide them together and break off at the little V in all of the sliders. My one issue was that one didn't work. I had to remove the can and work through the hole since sheetrocking was complete. It turned out that the black wire wasn't stripped before being pushed into the 3 hole wire connector. So there was no conductivity. I stripped it and reinserted it and it worked. This scared me because at first I thought the wire had broken in the wall during sheetrocking. I hope Sunco does better with quality by checking continuity from the orange light connector to the connector in the wiring box. I'm sure this isn't the first time this has occurred. Finally, it would be nice to perforate a 4" circle in the box with 2 "handles" on 2 sides. I would use those to push in the can to keep dust and paint out during construction after these are installed.

Great quality...quick shipment.....fair price! I needed canned lights for a remodel project in my kitchen. These were recommended in articles and reviews so I thought I’d give them a try. Although I haven’t installed them yet, the quality is excellent and they are tight little components. Look forward to getting them up into place. Thanks for a seamless interchange! When your house is torn up with remodeling it’s nice to know you can rely on Amazon sellers to follow through with their commitment on delivery and quality. Perfect!

Cons

Not very impressed. These are very cheaply made but seem to be sturdy enough. The fact they only come with the LED bulb connector and not a screw base makes me only rate these at 3 stars. It would have been a 4 or higher if they had included the ability to use practically any LED bulb and not just the ones that have this type of connector. They arrived well packed and the box wasn't damaged (like many have reported) and the first two were easy to install so I'm excited to get the others mounted. They'll work but I wouldn't have bought them at all if I knew how cheap they were and that they didn't have the screw base. I'll be ordering something else in the future.

Bad spring design. Lights are nice and bright. The springs that hold the light up are not good. I installed seven of the lights and at least one spring came off five of them and on one light both springs broke.

Short-changed. The lights themselves are perfect and very reasonably priced; however, one of the 10-packs only contained 9 lights. I had already begun the installation when I realized it so I wasn't about to take them down to return.

Get this on Amazon.
