LED luminaires - Housings, enclosures...

Question asked by emiliosancho on Sep 7, 2018

Dear all.

I'm Emilio Sancho from Spain. My company is now certifying our luminaires according to UL 1598 stadard.

All our products are LED luminaires (recessed, pendant or ceiling surface)

In Europe it is not necessary to add any special metal housing or enclosure, but from competitors I see some metal boxes incorporated to the poducts (remodel, new construction...)

I have read the UL 1598 and the NEC 2017 and seems this requirement (and the use otlet boxes) is mandatory.

Can anyone give me a feedback about this requirement? Where appears exactly? Is it possible to use an universal metallic enclosures?

Any suggestion or gude/tutorial?
