    Step Light

    Anyone install these on commercial projects? Anything to be aware of that could be part of electrical install aside from actual installing light....like chopping opening for light if concrete mounted? They are recessed. Thanks.

    Are they recessed in concrete?

    We normally do the rough before the pour.

    As SG stated you need to rough them in before they pour the concrete. We mount the enclosure to the form and then use either EMT or PVC jacketed MC cable between the enclosures. Hardest part is the layout to ensure that you're where you're supposed to be in the step. Nothing looks worse than having the lights not in line with each other or crooked.
