I am building a new shower block, glass door, and tiled walls. I am looking for suggestions as to lighting within the shower. I want it to be safe and to code. The base-to-ceiling height is about 7'4" with a 2X4 framed ceiling box. Are there fixtures which will fit into this ceiling? Should I use low-voltage lights to be safer? Any suggestions? Thanks!

It's not clear how much space you have above the ceiling of the shower, but my shower has a "can" type light fixture in the ceramic tile ceiling. It probably requires 8 to 10 inches above the ceiling of the shower. It has an aluminum ring, and plastic lens that extend slightly below ceiling level - maybe 1-1/2 inch. I believe it can be easily found in lighting stores and home improvement stores. It uses an ordinary 120v. light bulb.
