Pre-Painted Black I.C. Boxes

New Product Bulletin – Black I.C. Boxes

We are pleased to introduce a new line of Black I.C. Boxes!

Made of black pre-painted steel, both sides, in the same .027” min thickness steel to comply with UL1598, these offer the following advantages:

  • Increased heat dissipation: Being black, heat is absorbed more readily.
  • Visual absorption: Inside of I.C. box becomes almost invisible – especially important for large and/or multi-lamp cutouts.
  • Pre-painted steel: Far more cost effective than post painting.
  • Pre-painted steel: Leaves holes with bare metal, ensuring electrical continuity through metal fasteners; both screws & rivets.
  • Increased inside height: Utilizes the new single ceiling design of Tripar new #168X Series I.C.Boxes, offering an additional ½” inside height.
  • Aesthetics: They exude quality and look great!



These are offered in the same sizes as our current line of galvanized Chicago Plenum, as well as our Ultra Airtight I.C. Boxes – with black caulking to seal the joints instead of the standard white.

As Tripar will be stocking this black material in both coil and sheet, custom sizes are also possible.
