California Title 24 and What it Means For You

Confused about California Title 24?



Title 24Whether you're in the midst of a new construction or remodel project, understanding Title 24 standards for lighting can be confusing to say the least.  Rest assured that Polar-Ray.com carries a large selection of LED downlights that meet or exceed Title 24 2008 requirements and provide a simple, easy-to-install solution that will leave you smiling.  Here are a few quick tips and additional resources if you want to plunge further into the topic: 

  • If you need to purchase California Title 24 qualified products please make sure to look at the 'Product Details' located next to the main image on each product's page. If the product meets Title 24 requirements, you will find 'California Title 24 Compliant' listed near the bottom of the details list.
  • Most LED downlights that utilize a GU24 base are Title 24 compliant. Some of our most popular 6" models include the Cree LR6-GU24, LR6C-GU24 and CR6-GU24. When any of these lights are paired with Cree's GU24 new construction (RC6-12W-GU24) or remodel housing (RR6-12W-GU24) one has a quick and easy Title 24 compliant solution.
  • Halo 600 Series LED downlights are Title 24 compliant provided that you use a Title 24 compliant trim (sold separately, look for the T24 2008 logo on the trim images) and the dedicated Halo LED housing. Use the H750ICAT for new construction or theH750RICAT for remodel projects. . Due to it's intergrated trim ring, the Halo RL706830WBS provides an all-in-one solution when paired with either of the Halo housings.
  • Lighting Science Group Glimpse LED downlights offer a number of Title 24 compliant installation options including direct connection into the Halo H750ICAT and H750RICAT housings. Due to their low profile, they can also be installed in areas where a regular of shallow recessed housing would not fit. This is accomplished by using a junction box with a minimum of 2.5" of depth.
  • Have you already installed, or are looking to utilize existing recessed cans with an Edison base? Don't worry, we have several solutions that will work for you. Most of our Title 24 LED recessed lights include an adapter that allows the customer to remove the Edison base in the existing housing and replace it with a GU24 socket, or directly wire the light into the can using a wiring clip. For certain models, including the Sylvania RT downlights, the adapter is sold separately.
  • Make sure to review the spec sheets, installation instructions etc. located on each product's webpage. The red links to these pdf documents are easily located below the main product image. They will provide you with further detail regarding the installation and use of each product.

The California Lighting Technology Center and the California Energy Commission have several helpful guides and downloads for those needing additional information. They can be found at:
