For a Recessed Slim LED 4" round light, can the Driver Box lay inside the ceiling, NOT attached to anything or is it Ontario Electrical Code to be screwed to a wood structure i.e. a 2x4 ?? Thanks!

  • I do not specifically know the answer to your problem, but generally, connections cannot be made where they cannot be accessed (afterwards). Also the driver box is essentially a power supply, and if it gives off too much heat could cause a confined area to heat up.

  • Can you link the product in question? Sorry to put you to the trouble, the answer is not generic. Feb 19 '19 at 18:21
  • @mongo : For the accessibility to the box, I know they are to the Electrical Code. The LED trim (the part showing) on the ceiling has 2 spring loaded that hold on the ceiling (top), it takes 5 seconds to pull it out or put it in. They are very easy and nice to install.

  • Please Note: that the accessory (Mounting plate) in the document (link) above does not come with the product and is not needed. I just need to know if the driver (box) must be attached to wood structure or can it let be standing free on the drywall of ceiling, to pass the Ontario Code. Thanks
