Greetings,

Is extra support needed for LED recessed lights in drop tile ceilings? Support in the form of a steel wire extending from the light to the building structure above and/or support in the form of a metal bar attached to the grid of the drop tile ceiling panel?

Thanks,

Thanks,
It depends if you are located in a seismic category consideration, otherwise refer to NEC 410.36(B)
