older recessed lighting issue


Hi.
I have just bought a house built in 1952.
My wife asked me to replace a lighting fixture in our kitchen, which is a square recessed type.
Unfortunately, the area above the lighting fixture us not reachable.
My question is, does anyone know where, if I can at all, buy a replacement lens for the existing fixture? All that concerns her is the cosmetics anyway.
Thanks in advance.
Mike

Hey KB.

A square RC is going to be tough. Can you record some info and perhaps post some pics?

They do make them, though they tend to be specialty. The last installs I did were at Cartier. I've racked my brain and cannot come up with the name of the company that made the ones we used. Even if I did, it might not fit yours. I think a good place to look would be on the trim. Pop it out and see if there are any stickers on it. Might be a good place to start. Pics would help too. Sorry Andy, I'm just repeating what you said. I gotta go to bed.

I will try this one but kinda long shot in dark but there were used be quite popuar many years ago but i know few manufacters used to make them before.

one of them was called Haloplane the company do exsting but replacement part for this old luminaire is kinda long shot with this one.

to OP really the best way you can do is take the lens off and look for the label on the housing it will have a paper or manufacter info if still readable and not painted up other wise a photo will help alot so one of us can steer ya in right way.

Merci, Marc
