What is the relationship between Triple-R Lights and Lazer Lamps?
Triple-R Lights is the US subsidiary of Lazer Lamps, who are based in the UK. Triple-R Lights is wholly owned and operated by Lazer Lamps, and the products available through Triple-R Lights are the same products produced at Lazer's UK manufacturing site, albeit with some cosmetic details and functionality adjusted specifically for the US market.
How long are these lights built to last?
Triple-R Lights are built to last for many years, with an LED lifespan of at least 50,000 hours. They also come with a five-year warranty.
How tough are these lights?
From material selection right through to production and a vigorous test program, Triple-R Lights have been built to be the toughest lights on the market. Solid State light sources (LED) are inherently robust (no filament to break), while our LED light bars also have fully Aluminium enclosures and hard-coated Polycarbonate lenses. They are also sealed to IP67 (some products IP68) water-tightness level, ensuring they can withstand even the most extreme conditions.
How bright are these lights?
Triple-R Lights are known for their high performance and build quality, making them a popular choice for motorsport teams and vehicle manufacturers around the world. From the very beginning of our product development process, through every stage of the manufacturing process, we are striving to produce products with the very highest performance and build quality. There is no compromise in achieving the most that the latest component technologies can deliver, translating into a safer, more enjoyable driving experience for our customers.
What is the difference between lumens and lux?
There is a clear distinction between lumens and lux when using as a unit of light measurement. Lumens can be defined as the measurement of how bright a bulb or a light source is. Whether you are 1 meter away or 100 meters away from a light source it is still emitting the same amount of lumens. On the other hand, lux is the measure of the intensity of the light hitting a surface at a given distance. Our recommendation is that you review the product photometric diagram and consider the spread of light that you want. Overall, lux is a good measurement for determining and comparing the brightness of a beam.
How are the lights wired in to the vehicle system?
Triple-R Lights come with a full wiring diagram and instruction manual. Click here to download a pdf of our fitting instructions. You can also see below a short video where Triple-R Lights Director, Ben Russell-Smith introduces our wiring solutions including CAN Interface and Contactless Reader:
Is the lens really 'unbreakable'?
The lens on Triple-R Lights are made from 3mm thick Lexan GE Polycarbonate with a hardcoat lacquer, making them fully stone chip and impact resistant. We are so confident in the strength of our lenses that they come with a full guarantee - if they crack or break (unless caused by intentional duress) we'll offer a replacement free of charge. In the event of a vehicle collision or other substantial heavy impact causing lamp/lens damage, we are happy to supply a replacement lens and we also offer a lens replacement service for a small charge. Spare fascia parts are also available. See our terms for details.
Are spare parts available?
It depends. If you’re using the lamp for off-roading for example, we know that the lamps can sustain some pretty hefty impacts during competition driving. Some cosmetic parts of the lamps are fully serviceable or replaceable without having to break the lens seal (i.e. water-tightness). We are happy to supply replacement parts to our customers, see our terms for details.
Are the lights road legal, and are there any special mounting requirements?
Our lights are approved to specific UNECE regulations, albeit these accreditations are not recognised in North America. At the time of writing our lights have not undergone SAE/DOT approvals, but this is something we will consider in the future. Until that time all lights for use in the US should be operated via an independent switch. Regarding mounting requirements, please consult the installation instructions and any applicable regulations for your vehicle and state.
Are the lights fully waterproof?
Yes, our lights are completely watertight when submerged from cold and also when submerged hot (causing negative pressure). Every light leaving our UK manufacturing facility is pressure tested to confirm seal integrity, backed up by our five year warranty.
Can the products be jet washed?
Yes, Triple-R Lights can be jet washed thanks to an uprated silicon-coated gore-tex breather that permits high-pressure jet washing without the risk of water ingress to the light. This makes them even more durable and suitable for use in harsh environments. Additionally, it's worth noting that several of the products are rated to IP69k, which is a high level of protection against water and dust ingress, even at high temperatures and pressures. However, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully and ensure that the entire system is designed and installed correctly to maintain the waterproof integrity of the lights.
How do the LEDs compare between LR Series, ST Evolution, Linear, and Utility Series?
We carefully select the LEDs for each product/range based on various factors, including physical light properties, thermal performance, and projected end-user application. We use advanced simulation software, and real-world testing, to achieve the perfect balance of lighting performance versus LED longevity, product reliability and robustness. In some instances a light will support use of 11W LEDs, while other lights might be better suited to a greater number of lower power LEDs. Often we will use a combination of LEDs in any one lamp to achieve the best performance and distribution of light, albeit always at the same 5000K colour temperature, to ensure a perfectly homogenous and even beam pattern.
Where can I find the serial number on my lamp?
The serial number is required when making any warranty claim, and can be found either on a sticker located on the underside of the lamp, or partially hidden inside the lamp above the reflectors.
