Paramount’s largest selection of luminaires are UL Listed for Wet Locations. According to the NEC, luminaires marked “Suitable for Wet Locations” are for installation underground, in concrete slabs or masonry, subjected to water spray (such as vehicle washing areas) or subjected to rain. Paramount luminaires have been subjected to UL’s rain test and/or sprinkler test to determine that they are suitable for use in wet locations.

An ordinary wet location luminaire is constructed so water is prevented from accumulating on live parts, electric components or conductors. Luminaires that allow water to enter must provide drain holes to prevent accumulation. Rating systems, such as the IP Code (for Ingress Protection) classify degrees of protection from moisture. We also continue to improve and expand our products. A number of our luminaires now carry IP ratings, and the list is growing. For more information on wet locations and IP ratings, see the technical information found HERE.

Mounting orientation is very critical when installing a luminaire in a wet environment. Even though most of Paramount’s luminaires are designed for covered ceiling installations, modified designs are available for alternate mounting orientations.

Choose from LED, Fluorescent, or HID light sources, with surface, flange or grid mounting. Customized luminaires are also available. Contact us for solutions to your Wet Location lighting needs.
