About Modifications

Sloped ceilings, curved walls, shallow plenums, harsh environments . . . Edison Price Lighting can efficiently modify standard products to overcome installation challenges such as these.

 

Common Modifications

Some product modifications are requested so regularly that they do not require special approval. Simply include the modification product codes on your specification. Popular modification codes include:

  • CHP-: fixture suitable for Chicago Plenum
  • CONC-: fixture suitable for poured-in-place concrete
  • EXP-: `European-style ́ install-from-below fixture
  • +2”CLG: fixture suitable for installation in 2” thick ceiling material
  • +DOD: fixture suitable for high humidity environments
  • +MAR: reflector suitable for marine environments
  • - EM:  Emergency fixtures

 

Please note: not all popular modifications are available on every product. To find out which codes are available, check the  "Modifications Available" box on the product's spec sheet.

 

'Made to order'

 

If a common modification cannot solve your lighting challenge, then inquire about our efficient 'made to order' solutions.  We have over five decades of experience customizing fixtures to meet specific projects needs. One of our many custom projects includes Yale's Sterling Memorial Library (pictured below), for which we designed custom PAR38 LED fixtures. Learn more about the project here.

 

The Modification Process

From first inquiry to final delivery, our Technical Sales team we will guide you through our efficient 5-step modifications process. 

 

Step 1

Upon receiving the initial request, we will research the modification, including previous experience, potential heat tests, required components and tooling, and supplier feedback.

Step 2

Our Technical Sales department will provide a quote, if the modification is confirmed feasible.

 

Step 3

Upon receiving a purchase order, our engineers may either: a) confirm a prototype is unnecessary, and create master assembly drawings, or b) confirm a prototype is necessary and design a custom fixture. If a prototype is created, our Metrology department will perform in-house heat and pull testing.

Step 4

Once the drawings have been approved, and the order has been released, our team will create detailed parts drawings and finalize the factory's bill of material.

 

Step 5

Working closely with the engineers, our manufacturing employees will begin fabrication.
