Long Lasting Permalite™ Interior Dome Light for Trailers

Santa Fe Springs, CA (February 9, 2004) Permalite™, the innovative florescent dome trailer lamp developed by Phillips Industries, features an efficient ballast circuit that pulls less start-up amps and uses lower operating volts extending lamp and bulb life. Repair costs are further reduced because the low-profile, impact-resistant polycarbonate housing, unbreakable lens and stainless steel fasteners protect the unit from extreme conditions and routine trailer loading and cargo damage.

Phillips has addressed many safety issues with the Permalite™. The lower-demand ballast circuit means a trailer can run up to 6 lamps, each with a 24 watt, 12,000 hour fluorescent bulb, increasing visibility for shipping and receiving personnel. Additionally, the unique design negates the need for costly, complex and often dangerous heat strips and fits in most standard refrigerated trailers.
