HAZARDOUS  LOCATION  LIGHTING

We manufacture luminaires for specific Hazardous locations. These Paramount models are constructed with heavy-duty materials and sealants to ensure high integrity. The National Electric Code outlines requirements for luminaires where combustible or explosive hazards may exist. Locations are classified by the properties of the flammable materials and the degree of hazard.

Medical / Healthcare Lighting

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 Techniseal® 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.

EDUCATIONAL  LIGHTING

The lighting used in schools, colleges and universities is as diverse as the learning centers are themselves. Paramount has supplied luminaires for many different areas within this category over the years. Our unique Starduster® LED and fluorescent luminaires excel in these applications.

MARINE LIGHTING

Paramount has been a leading supplier of lighting for the marine industry for over 50 years because of quality products, innovative technologies, experience and service. Our luminaires can be found in service on waterways throughout the world.

Paramount’s L1 Series and RF9 Series luminaires were used on pedestrian ferry Col. Frank X. Armiger, owned by the State of Louisiana, and operated by the state Department of Transportation and Development. This ferry traverses the Mississippi between Algiers Point and Canal Street in New Orleans. (click photo for more info)

TRANSIT LIGHTING

Paramount’s quality lighting has been used by the Transportation industry for over 60 years. Our LED, fluorescent, HID and Wet Location luminaires are used by many public mass transportation authorities. Modification for transportation power systems is standard for us. Much of our custom design work is for transit lighting as well. We continuously incorporate new technologies to add efficiency and value, including interfacing with today’s “Smart Building” automation.

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.

 

 

Cleanrooms are defined spaces in which the concentration of airborne particles are controlled to meet specific cleanliness classes. This is normally handled through positive air pressure ventilation. Cleanliness classes range from the most clean (ISO 1) to the least clean (ISO 9).

Paramount’s cleanroom luminaires are designed and built to the most exacting standards, for high illumination with integrity. Many are also NSF Certified. We provide lighting with an unyielding shield against contamination!  Our offerings include Starduster® LED, fluorescent and H.I.D. light sources; all carry the UL listing.

To ensure and maintain critical cleanroom standards, trust Paramount’s vast experience and reputation in supplying high quality luminaires that meet or exceed meticulous requirements.

 

Custom luminaires enhance the individual quality of the areas they light. Our custom units meet the design challenges and generate high levels of illumination. Contemporary designers are using Paramount luminaires to achieve dramatic lighting effects. We have the engineering expertise, the experience, the equipment and the manufacturing flexibility to fabricate unique products. We can create “one-of-a-kind” luminaires or produce short runs. You get the best combination of design, technology and craftsmanship.
