4" pot light clearance
 
I want to install some old pot lights in my basement remodel.
They are 4" with a rating of 75w max par 30, my question is, what is the minimum clearance for electrical cables passing around this pot light?

Where i would need it to be centered, there are 4 x 14-2 cables passing over this pot light, and I can maintain 4" clearance, is this enough?

Also, I am 20" away from the rigid gas line, which is 1.25 ips steel,
I am guessing this should be plenty also?


Aprreciate your input!

you will be fine. Clearance needs to be 2" minimum.
