Ryder Systems Inc has chosen its Phillips Industries' Permalite fluorescent trailer lighting fixture as standard equipment for all new refrigerated trailer purchases.

Permalite features an efficient ballast that suppresses start-up surge and pulls fewer amps. Repair costs are further reduced because the low-profile, impact-resistant polycarbonate housing and unbreakable lens protect the unit from extreme conditions and routine trailer loading and cargo damage. Phillips says a lower-demand ballast circuit means a trailer can run up to six lamps, each with a 24-watt, 12,000-hour fluorescent bulb. The design negates the need for heat strips and fits in most standard refrigerated trailers.
