Go Green with the FF130E Insulation Protection Cover and start saving money on your energy bill. The FF130E Recessed Light Draft Stop Cover is a fire resistant enclosure that was specifically designed to protect your light fixture from insulation in the attic and to stop unwanted airleakage through your recessed light.
The FF130E has been tested in accordance with UL1598 for usage with IC and 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.
Recessed lights account for 50% of the total thermal losses of a ceiling. Due to the improved airtightness and insulation, the end users experience significant energy savings.
Recessed Light Covers allow the insulation to be continuous and uninterrupted over the whole area of the ceiling, therefore saving energy and carbon emissions. The FF130E covers are fit within seconds and do not require assembly or special tools.
Simply put the flexible and lightweight cover on top of your light fixture – Done Deal! The newly added flange on the bottom of the enclosure provides an improved seal and enhanced draftstopping capabilities. The slightly oval design allows the barrier to fit smoothly in a 16″ on-center joist space, while its dome shape ensures that insulation is kept away from the light, preventing combustible materials, such as blown-in cellulose, to come in contact with the hot light.
