For decades the lighting industry has counted on Hydrel’s revolutionary flow-through product solutions when quality and performance matter most. For Hydrel, the paradox was meeting customer needs for minimal luminaire depth and aperture size, or situations where flow-through technology was not applicable. With this in mind, Hydrel set out to establish the standard for sealed in-grade illumination. The result: Paradox Architectural In-grade Luminaires.
















Paradox Architectural In-grade Features:

· Modular design simplifies installation and maintenance.

· Innovative sealing technology provides IP68 rating and meets UL wet location requirements.

· Precision optics designed to maximize lighting performance and minimize glare.

· Reduced lens surface temperature through the use of Hydrel’s patent-pending cool lens model.
