IMTRA expands searchlight range to reach broader market

(NEW BEDFORD, Mass.) — IMTRA, a leading manufacturer and importer of quality solutions and products for the marine, energy and transportation markets, has expanded its searchlight product offerings to meet the specific requirements of commercial vessels, regardless of their mission. While IMTRA has been the U.S. source for Luminell (formally Colorlight) searchlights for several years, the company has recently added Den Haan Rotterdam (DHR) LED and halogen searchlights to its catalog. They feature both electronic and manual controls.

“Both DHR and Luminell are well-established brands with long histories of building some of the highest quality lights in the industry,” said Alex Larsen, vice president of commercial sales, IMTRA. “DHR’s pricing and simplicity of operation are ideal for smaller commercial vessels, while the power and control integration of Luminell’s product line are ideal for vessels that require advanced searchlights, such as pilot boats, and search and rescue (SAR) or government vessels. These two brands complement each other perfectly and allow us to give our customers more options.”

IMTRA’s full range of searchlights start at approximately $700 for a compact, manually controlled DHR light and extends upward in capabilities and price to include Luminell’s searchlights with integrated FLIR thermal imaging camera. Luminell’s advanced searchlights, designed and manufactured in Sweden, are ideal for vessels that require an integrated thermal camera – a perfect solution for fire/rescue. The CLite2 is the first compact, high-output LED searchlight to provide full movement on both the X- and Y-axis for unlimited rotation with no hard stops. In addition, the all-new SL1, is a compact, high lumen output LED searchlight that meets Fire Fighting Systems (FiFi) specifications. Easy to install, the SL1 has a user-friendly control panel and a dimmable, adjustable beam for adaptability to almost any situation. Luminell and DHR searchlights are found on every type of vessel including offshore supply vessels, merchant marine, naval, Coast Guard, tugboats, fishing vessels, SAR, icebreakers, megayachts and many others.
