Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product good product, works as described, built pretty well. Not 5 starts as the rail system stinks just like most canned lights. The insulation sensor works great (has a probe with a temp sensor and heater so it will cut out the power even before the lamp overheats. Just make sure to read the directions

  • does anyone make a wet location heat lamp

    A. The Progress Lighting P6952TG is UL listed for damp locations.

  • Does the bulb have a cover so you can install this in a shower and still be in code?

    A. The Progress Lighting P6952TG is UL listed for damp locations to be used in bathrooms

  • Can you order this with white trim? Can this be installed in new construction?

    A. The Progress Lighting P6952TG is only available in Satin Aluminum, and you can install this in new construction.

  • Can you use a dimmer switch on the heat lamp to control the heat?

    A. The Progress Lighting P6952TG is not dimmable.

  • If this heat/light cannot be installed over shower, where can it be installed in the bathroom?

    A. The issue here is the UL rating. This fixture is rated for a "damp" location, which would be the bathroom in general. Over the shower would be considered a "wet" location due to the constant moisture and humidity. Most customers install this just outside their shower enclosure so it heats upon entry and exit.

  • What is the maximum wattage this can take?

    A. The Progress Lighting P6952TG takes a 250 watt maximum blub.

  • What protects the bulb from a splash of water?

    A. Thank you for your question. The Progress Lighting P6952TG is UL listed for damp locations so it is not necessarily designed to have water directly splashed onto it. The bulb itself fits flush against the trim so that water will not leak into the housing of the fixture.

  • Can this be safely used inside a shower stall even though its only damp rated instead of wet rated?

    A. The Progress Lighting P6952TG is not recommended for use within a shower stall. It can however be installed in damp locations, meaning you could install it in the bathroom.

  • How many volts does this light use?

    A. The Progress Lighting P6952TG uses 120 volts.

  • Is there more detail on installation?

    A. Under our Additional Information section above there is a PDF link to view the Installation Sheet for this unit. These instructions will also come with the unit if you decide to purchase.

  • What are the installation requirements for the P6952TG in an insulated ceiling?

    A. The P6952TG installation instructions state that "thermal insulation shall not be installed within 3" of recessed housing."

  • Can this be used over a bathtub (not a shower/tub, just a tub)?


    The Progress Lighting P6952TG is rated for damp locations such as bathrooms, but must not be located directly over a bathtub or shower. As with all bathroom lights there is a chance of over exposure to moisture, or of hardware coming loose and falling, so installation directly over a water fixture is not recommended.
