Recessed lighting in 5/8 fire drywall?


Can I put Halo Airlight recessed lights in my garage when I will install 5/8 fire drywall?

Thanks!

Do you need to keep the fire rating?

Check with your inspector. You may need to use a fire proof cover on the lights if they are requiring a fire rating for the ceiling.
