Paramount offers a wide variety of LED and fluorescent lighting options pertaining to Healthcare and Medical applications. For hospital surgical suite applications we offer our Surgical Series Flange/Grid troffers with acrylic radio frequency interference shielding lenses. This lens is specifically designed for supplemental surgical suite lighting that provides an asymmetrical distribution which directs maximum candle power to the surgical site area with typical luminaire layouts. This also allows for areas surrounding the surgical site to be generously illuminated.

Wikipedia defines Sustainable Lighting as: “lighting designed with energy efficient light sources” and also discusses “design strategies and materials that can facilitate energy saving advantages”. At Paramount, sustainable product design has always been an integral part of our long history, contributing to our quality reputation. Along with the cost savings realized from a long-term product investment, luminaires designed and built for longevity helps maintain a lower environmental impact.

This application photo series is from the University of Minnesota Ralph Rapson Hall. The facility renovation, as well as a 50,000 square-foot addition which houses the University of Minnesota School of Architecture, were designed by Steven Holl (with Vincent James Associates and Ellerbe Becket), for which Holl won a New York Chapter American Institute of Architects (AIA) design award.



Today Paramount Industries is taking you a step back in time (circa 1960), showcasing a severe lighting application. When safety and durability were major concerns, NASA chose Paramount to illuminate the rocket testing facility at Edwards AFB. Even after the June 8, 1960 explosion while testing the experimental X-15 Rocket Plane, Paramount’s pole mounted C8 Series Craft Lite® luminaires stood up to the challenge. Our products have changed with the needs of the industry, but our commitment to quality is as durable and long lasting as our luminaires.
