We pride ourselves on our commitment to quality. You can see it in the way we build our lighting fixtures. What makes our product better than the competition’s? Consider this:
We use only top quality materials to manufacture our lighting fixtures, including A360 aluminum ingot imported from Australia (or higher, if customer specified).
Our fixture housings contain more material than our competition’s. This means the fixture is sturdier, an important consideration when it is hanging, wired, from a ceiling, but even more importantly, this means our fixture will have a lower operating temperature than a thinner fixture, which is key to preventing capacitor failures occurring from internal temperatures reaching or exceeding 90°C.
All of our screws, clips, and fasteners (both external and internal) are stainless steel with nickel-plating rather than cadmium plated, making them rust resistant and durable.
Our gaskets are silicone, which means they won’t burn like other materials will.
Our molded Borosilicate glass lenses are manufactured in Taiwan for superior thermal shock resistance and clarity.
We use Lexan 243R or Bayer 2407 for our Polycarbonate lenses, which offers the highest UV and temperature ratings available.
Our reflectors are pure aluminum (99.4%) for better photometry and lumen output, and thicker for better shape retention and durability.
We use DuPont powder for our powdercoat finishes because of its superior UV resistance and durability.
Our fixtures have a chromate conversion coating applied prior to the powdercoat painting process. This nine-stage process increases the corrosion resistance of the housings, which prolongs the life of the fixture, while it also provides an excellent bonding surface for the paint, which in turn prolongs the life of the finish.
We own our U.L., CSA, CE, GS and TUV files used for domestic and International markets and all of our products comply with these strict standards. We have taken these standards and applied them to all of our outdoor lighting products.
Clearly, QSSI’s fixtures are the quality way to go. You may pay less to our competition up front, but it will cost you more in the end!
