LED Recessed Troffer Retrofit Kits


MaxLite's one-piece LED RKT Series Recessed Troffer Retrofit Kit is an economical, easy-to-install upgrade to LED lighting in existing recessed troffers, which avoids removal of existing fixtures and associated asbestos abatement (See Installation Video). Available in diverse color temperatures and lumen outputs in standard sizes, the Kit uses thermal dot technology for temperature and warranty control.

The lightweight, eight-pound RKT Kit replaces traditional fluorescent troffers in lay-in or T-grid ceilings in a variety of commercial and institutional applications, including offices, lobbies, hallways and conference rooms in schools, municipalities, libraries, airports, healthcare facilities, showrooms, corporate campuses, retailers and hospitality environments.

50,000 hour life

50,000 hour life, or more than 17 years operating 8 hours a day, is based on L70 standards (at 70 degrees F based on LM80 data). When the LEDs reach 30 percent lumen depreciation, end-of-life is reached. This life cycle far exceeds halogen and CFL, and is almost double the life of linear fluorescents.

Compatible with building controls, motion sensors, timers and daylight harvesting systems

Compatible with building controls, motion sensors, timers and daylight harvesting systems for additional energy savings
