The Professionals Choice
PIAA Lamps are the professionals choice for high performance driving,
spot, fog and automotive lighting. Dependable and reliable under
the most severe racing conditions, they are used by World Rally
and National Rally Champions.
Advanced Tough Design
Tough PIAA lenses are computer designed for optimum performance
and are made of hardened prism glass to withstand the rigours
of off-road and normal highway hazards. PIAA's lamps feature a
specially designed polyphenylene sulphide composite, alumimium
or stamped steel housing. These materials make it possible for
PIAA lamps to operate under higher wattage bulbs without sacrificing
bulb life. PIAA Quality makes PIAA lighting the serious drivers
High Intensity Discharge H.I.D.
Lamps create a light source that is produced by a
stabilized arc that burns at a much higher color temperature
which creates a whiter light output than a standard halogen
lamps are available for various applications.
Note the diagram adjacent which is a guide on the 3 types
of beams available.
Fog - A fog light enhances visibility
in fog, rain, snow and dust. Fog lights are intended to
be used conjunction with standard headlamp systems. PIAA's
Ion Crystal series of lighting are an excellent choice
for bad driving conditions. Fog lights are intended to
be used in conjunction with standard headlamp low beams.
Drive - A drive light is intended to
supplement the high beam of a standard headlamp system
to enhance the illumination for increased visibility all
Spot - Sometimes referred to as a Pencil
Beam. A narrow beam of light that has an extremely long
range with minimal side to side illumination.
Some of PIAA's key use of technology in various lighting
systems (depending on the application) includes:
Ion Crystal - PIAA's method of achieving
this is a propriety coating applied to a bulb or lens
that transforms the light output to amber with much higher
efficiency that conventional amber coloured lenses.
Lens Fluting - A process in which moulds
the lens to control the beam pattern by deflecting the
light to the desired point in the beam. Lens Fluting usually
looks like vertical cuts in the lens.
Multi Surface Reflector - MSR, A reflector
designed to control the beam pattern with a computer designed
surface to project the light precisely to the desired
point in the beam.
Dichroic - A technology where the lamp
design is such that it allows heat to dissipate away from
the bulb which in turn increases bulb life and makes the
whole lighting setup more efficient. Used mostly in the
compact tuning lamps in the PIAA range.
