Alternative to recessed lighting


Recently had my inspector fail my insulation inspection for pot lights in a flat roof. The break in the r value at the pots was not acceptable to him.

Fine I understand.
What I am looking for is a lighting solution that looks like pots but fits to a standard octagonal box.
I found the following from sea gull lighting but wondering if anyone knows of others.

Thanks

Great thanks

Do you know if this allowed to be used in an insulated ceiling? The fiberglass will be touching the box..
