Tripar Recessed Downlight Guide – 5th Edition

Tripar launched its Recessed Downlight Guide in 2017 to explain the mechanical aspects and requirements imposed by UL1598; the principal governing downlight luminaire specification for the North American market, offering a multitude of solutions. Our clients constantly refer to this guide, several of whom have referred to it as “their bible”!

In an effort to continuously support our clients, we always look to update this guide, and recently launched the 5th edition. As the largest stamped and fabricated metal components supplier to the lighting industry, we take pride in listening to and collaborating with our clients to develop innovative solutions and manufacture various new products that respect these standards.
