MaxLite Launches J-Box Downlight as All-In-One Recessed Lighting Solution

Press release date: Jul 11, 2017

Integral junction box design eliminates the need for traditional recessed housing

Expanding its portfolio of LED products designed to save installers time and money, MaxLite introduces the J-Box Downlight as the easy and economical way to add high quality recessed lighting to residential and commercial spaces.

The downlight is built with an integral junction box that eliminates the need for a traditional recessed housing during installation in new construction and retrofit projects. The fixture simply gets wired to a wall switch and placed into the ceiling - no can, bulb or extra labor required. MaxLite offers the J-Box Downlight in 4- and 6-inch diameters, and color temperatures of 2700K, 3000K and 4000K, to meet a variety of interior specifications. Outputs in the series range from 450 to 700 lumens, equivalent to those of 40- to 60-watt incandescent bulbs. Models with a 90-plus CRI are certified to meet Joint Appendix 8 (JA8) of the Title 24 2016 building code requirements for the State of California. In addition, all J-Box Downlight models are ENERGY STAR certified.

“The one-piece design of the J-Box Downlight is a real advantage for contractors and do-it-yourselfers,” said Product Manager Brendan Drew. “Not only is it very fast and easy to install, but the long life of LED technology translates to years of maintenance-free illumination and energy cost savings for homeowners and facility managers.”

The downlight is built with an airtight, IC-rated housing that secures easily into place using the integral torsion springs. The fixture is designed with a white baffle trim that blends seamlessly into interiors and reduces glare for soft, eye-pleasing illumination. The downlight operates on 120V and does not require the use of an external driver, thereby creating long-lasting and reliable performance over a lumen-maintenance life of 36,000 hours.

MaxLite supports the J-Box Downlight with a five-year limited warranty and lifetime product support. For more information, go to or visit the following links:
