When TOMAR set out to design a light bar to be used in off-road environments, over 50 years of industrial-strength warning and illumination experience went into creating something more high-strength and better-performing than the rest; enter the TOMAR TRX, TRT, and TRM product lines.
Focused on those who protect us every day, TOMAR off-road bars are like nothing you have seen before. We started with Cree® XPL LEDs for maximum lumen output and reliability. The light from the LEDs is focused through our Clear Vision Optic (CVO) system which uses a hybrid total-internal-reflector (TIR) collimator over the LED, rather than a reflector behind the LED like other manufactures. By doing this, TOMAR off-road bars are able to effectively project more of the LED’s lumens exactly where the light needs to go. This means dramatically increased performance when compared to equal amounts of lumens, and less glare from stray vertical light. It also gives TRX the ability to have fully dual-color SAE-compliant options. Next, to battle the decrease in lumen output seen when a LED heats up, we used thermal material matched to a heavy-duty 6065-T5 aluminum heat-sink designed to effectively maintain light output performance over increased periods of usage. This was especially important when working with agencies needing to rely on light bar performance for hours at a time.
From there, we seal the optics and electronics using our patented linear-vibration welding sealing process, protecting the components from dust and moisture, in one of three optical options: Spot, Flood, or Combination Spot/Flood. The module layouts are then configured by user preference. And because TOMAR’s off-road bars are modular, they can be serviced or adjusted by placing modules in different positions.
To meet the needs of different industries, we broke the off-road line into three sub-lines:
The TRX Series is all about illumination. Whether it is built as a single-color light bar, with visible* white-light output only; or a fully dual-color light bar with an amber override feature, TRX meets illumination needs whether conditions are clear, rainy, smoky, foggy, etc. This is our core off-road bar, and is used on many applications from civilian race vehicles to wildland fire-fighting brush trucks and apparatus.
The TRT Series is TOMAR’s Tactical off-road bar, and combines TRX illumination with the incredible warning/emergency light power of the TOMAR Scorpion Light Bar; and it does all this from one bar. Even in flashing warning mode, TRT meets current SAE, California Title 13, NFPA, and other guidelines on lighting safety.
Finally, to provide the increased protection needed when operating in sea-water or ocean environments, the TRM Series marine line meets the demands of ship-borne light bars, in either of the TRX or TRT formats, with an extra protective powder-coating process to defend the finish against the elements. Since the whole TOMAR off-road line of light bars meet IP69K standards for water-proofing, nothing else on the TRM line needed to be adapted for water-use. This means you maintain the incredible performance many have come to expect from the TOMAR off-road bars.
Like All TOMAR products, TOMAR’s off-road lines are designed, engineered, assembled and serviced in our state of the art, ENERGY STAR certified factory located in Gilbert, Arizona, USA, and come with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
