The ML56 family, which is ENERGY STAR®-qualified for both residential and commercial applications, offers up to $400 in energy and replacement savings over the life of the fixture.
The ML56 LED Recessed Downlighting System is designed for new construction, remodeling or retrofit into both 5-inch and 6-inch standard and shallow recessed housings by Halo, All-Pro or compatible recessed housings.

The series offers two lumen packages, including the 600 series (9.0 watts/80 CRI and 10.2 watts/90 CRI) and 900 series (13.4 watts/80 CRI or 90 CRI). The 600 series offers up to 708 lumens and the 900 series produces up to 1,010 lumens depending on the trim and color temperature selection.
The ML56 light modules feature an inside frost lens that has the familiar look of a typical R/BR-type lamp for visual comfort and aesthetic familiarity, while offering uniform illumination.
