Know of any of those wafer lights that have the spring clips that would work with DOUBLE layer 5/8" Sheetrock?

Can you shave the back of the drywall thinner where the clips go?

If you have a double layer of 5/8 Sheetrock isn't that a fire rated ceiling? Can you install those types of fixtures in a fire rated ceiling?

The double layer isn't for fire rating.
It's because they have popcorn ceiling texture so they'll put another layer just to avoid dealing with the texture.
