Products, Materials and Finishes

Do you sell wired fixtures?

Adam Metal Products does not compete with its customers therefore we do not wire any products and only sell the metal enclosures that conform to UL requirements.

Do you make fixtures that use Compact Fluorescent lamps (CFL)?

Yes, we have modified many fixtures to accept CFL’s. We make a variety where the CFL socket snaps in to the cover, or screws onto the socket plates.

The majority of the fixtures we make are from pre-painted white steel. This is cold rolled steel that has a baked white enamel finish.

Which fixtures do you make out of aluminum?

The Series 102, 104, 203 & 205 vanity bodies and ends are made of BAA (Bright Anodized Aluminum) with WPA (White Painted Aluminum) covers. The Series 1400 and 1420 bodies are offered in BAA and brass anodized aluminum with galvanized backs and post plated steel ends. We also offer the Series 213 and a variety of strips made of WPA. Many reflectors for our Llinear and High Bay series use reflectors with bright enhanced aluminum for optimum reflectance.

What finishes do you offer?

White steel (our most popular) is a pre-painted finish; we also have Black, Brown, and Walnut in a limited supply. We now offer a Chrome like (BAA, Bright Anodized Aluminum), a white WPA (White Painted Aluminum) or a pre-plated Brass on many series. We also offer bare steel, which you can post paint.

Are special finishes available?

There are three main choices here:

1. Many of our customers have painted over our pre-paint, please check with your local painter and keep in mind proper pre- cleaning noting our wax and baking temperature (not to bubble the pre-coated material).

2. We can produce the units in bare steel, which you can paint. Mins may apply.

3. For larger order requests, we can order in pre-painted material, but this will require a large purchase of parts. Check with factory for more details.

Is your linear line (850, 855, 880 & 885) always sold as bare/unfinished housings and cast ends?

Yes. Make sure your local powder coater is aware that the housings are steel and the ends are die cast aluminum, so the can make sure the finish is consistent. We can ship direct to your powder coating vendor.
