I have 6" canister light housings and 6" canister trim. I am using these lights in a suspended ceiling.
How do you go about making an even 6" hole for the lights in the ceiling tiles? 6" hole saw maybe?
Also, just to confirm. I am assuming the canister SHOULD NOT sit on top of the ceiling tile. Too heavy over time. So I figure you have to mount it up in the rafters so it just kind of hovers over the ceiling tile and then apply the canister trim to bring it all together. Correct?
I guess you mean can lights. Lowes and HD both sell a carbide grit hole saw made by Green Lee that not that expancive made to the perfect size for can lights. There in the area where the lights area sold and also in the tool area.
They do not grab and twist your arm like a tooth hole saw does.
If you used remodel cans I would see no need for added supports up under the panels because there so light.
Here's a video on how to use the ones with suspention bars.
Thanks JOECAPTION for the information. We stayed away from the grid setup because we were told that they were primarily for new construction. So we went with the remodel can light version. I think I will do the first two differently. One I will leave on the ceiling tile and one I will give additional support to. My tiles are 2X2 so they should be rigid enough to deal with the light actually sitting on it.
