What trim will fit Elite recessed housing?


An electrician installed a 5" recessed incandescent lighting housing in my shower (which is still undergoing renovation). He chose a housing without asking me anything (and I knew nothing about recessed lighting). Now I need to choose a trim, but I can't find anything that will fit it. The inside of the can sais "Elite lighting", catalog #B5IC-AT-W, and it even lists 9 Elite trim#s that it says I should get. On the Elite web site I can find specs of this model and listings of applicable trims, but the site has no way of ordering anything (are they only a wholesaler?), and the site has many broken links, which worries me. I can't find *any* online place that sells Elite trims!

Will other brands of trims fit this housing? And if so, I see some trims listed as rated for "damp", and others rated for "wet" -- can I get one that is only for "damp"? The light is in the middle of the shower ceiling.

Thanks for any help.

Never head of them before. I suggest you call their customer service at 1-877-375-5555 and see if they can give you the location of the distributor in your area.

And no, if the light is in the shower, it must have a wet location rated shower trim. Damp location won't cut it.

PS What's above that area?
If it's an attic not a room above it that an also needs to be an I/C air tight.

It is an insulated space between two floors. The can is a proper I/C air-tight fixture for bathrooms according to the specs I found on the elite website.
