pancake box fill
I am currently roughing in my wiring for a remodel and I plan to install three light fixtures from an exposed beam. I have the wires (12/2) routed through the beam.
Question: Is there a pancake type box that is more than 6 cu in? Does a fixture canopy cover the space requirement for the fixture wires such that a 6.75cu" j-box is all that is required (3 x 2.25)? Is space for the "device" also required in such a box?
I ran 12/2 for all my wiring, but now having this issue with capacity for these (3) boxes. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
They do make a cover for the pancake boxes that will simulate the opening of a square to round. I'm not sure of the cu. inches, however. I've seen them at HD.
