Can Model 174 be installed in existing construction with steel studs?
I have 16" on center steel studs in existing construction. Your installation instructions show new construction with wood studs. Is it possible to install in my situation without using kit 84 to mount on the wall instead of within the wall?
you could but the housing would show if it is surface mounted and you would have to drill a entrance hole for #12 wire to come thru the back side of housing. I cut a hole in my drywall the size of the housing next to the stud and slid it in then screwed to the stud.
