Wet Location Downlights
Wet Location Rated retrofit kits can be used anywhere where these fixtures are going to come in direct contact with water spray, rain or snow. They can be installed in a non-protected outside area in both a residential or commercial setting.
Wet location rated outdoor retrofit kits can come in direct contact with water. This type of exterior recessed retrofit kit will keep water like rain, shower water, sleet, snow or child's water gun spray from harming the LED or the driver inside.
Damp location rated outdoor retrofit kits may be exposed to condensation but should never be exposed to direct contact of water. Damp location rated fixtures may be used in under a covered porch, or in a bathroom where water spray will never come into contact with the fixture.
All of Lightup.com's recessed retrofit kits are damp location rated. Make sure you check whether the light you are looking at is a damp location rated or a wet location rated fixture. All wet location rated fixtures will have the "Wet location" approval label under image of the product. If you still are unsure which retrofit kit best suits your situation and use, please call our customer service department at Lightup.com and we would be happy to help you with your decision!
