Does anyone know of a can light made for a 12-16 Pitch ceiling? (53degree) This is for new construction.

I am assuming that this is a catherderal ceiling.

The problem with putting cans in a cathderal ceiling is that there is limited space for insulation in such a ceiling and leave a void.

Also it broaches the ceiling vapor barrier and got place for from the house to get into the ceiling and condense.

It take much, much, much, more effort to get a good installion, Building Science wise, and even then you are limited.

I would suggest using can lighting.

Thanks for the advise so far- although the problem is finding any can light designed to exceed the custom 45 degree pitch found in most homes or porches.

This is for a screen porch, and is under construction right now.

The Juno link only has 30 - 45 degree pitch roof lights.

One alternative when you have steep angles is a retractable eyeball. One example would be a Halo 1496 trim with a 60 degree tilt. There are others that tilt further. Good looking fixtures, low voltage and provide ample illumination.
