Q Jeff Burns • 05/02/2024, 12:29:25 PM I am looking at the ELRT-R-RM and it states it is suitable for mounting in drop ceiling. The bracket in the pictures looks like a new construction bracket. Does the unit come with a dropped ceiling bracket? Are there instructions included with the unit for dropped ceiling mounting.
A Exit Light Co. The arms of the bracket are extendable to reach the T-Bar system for dropped ceiling installation. Instructions are included with the unit for smooth installation in both new construction and dropped ceiling applications.
