Why would i use a knockoff fixture that is sold to everyone and their mother for 15 dollars?


Cant wait to see their fixtures end up in dollar stores by 2015

I have installed many Volt fixtures. They are basic, no frill fixtures. However, they are rugged. I have yet to have a failure in 2 years.

Thanks for the reply. Since i am in a small market i target both high end and middle class customers. Not everyone of my customers can afford some of the more elite systems. I am looking for a fixture to make avaiable to customers that will accomodate their budgets. I know you all install high end high quality products but i am just looking for options.

No matter which brand of fixtures you are thinking of using, keep in mind the necessity of proper electrical listings. There is just far too much product being sold (from a variety of sources) that does not carry the appropriate listings. You as a professional installer must be certain that the components you are installing are properly inspected and listed. If they are not, you could find yourself in a situation where your insurance is void and you are liable for anything that might happen to the system you have installed. Even if nothing ever comes of it (safety wise) if your local electrical inspectors find unlisted product being installed they can take action against you.
