These photos are from the Misawa Air Base facility in Japan. The project was specified by Paramount’s sales representative ALR in Oakland, CA. Due to ineffective lighting levels from previous High Pressure Sodium fixtures, Paramount was chosen to re-lamp these aircraft shelters utilizing Hazardous Location Techniseal® troffers with T5HO lamps. Light levels were increased from 20 footcandles of yellowish light with poor color rendering to a brighter, whiter 50 footcandles with excellent color rendering. Military technicians said the difference was like “Night and Day”, and they also noted a 25% savings in energy costs!

Paramount utilized eight 54-watt T5HO lamps and a specular reflector in their hazardous location HS2 model Techniseal® troffer at Misawa Air Base
