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.
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.
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.
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 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.
