Unilite Heritage

It is our relentless pursuit of excellence that has been driving our evolution.

Established in 1981 as a lighting supplier, Unilite has grown into one of the world’s leading flashlight manufacturers in the global illumination market. It is our relentless pursuit of excellence that has been driving our evolution.

IP Testing facility

Portable lights from different manufacturers may not be compared easily.  Not without referring to ANSI/NEMA FL1 standard, an international flashlight performance rating system. To help customers appreciate our product quality, a well equipped in-house testing laboratory was set up with a controlled environment of 21±2°C and relative humidity at 50±40%.  Among various performance and reliability tests, six ANSI FL1 tests are undertaken: Light Output, Peak Beam Intensity, Beam Distance, Run Time, Impact Resistance and Water Resistance. Performed with strict adherence to ANSI FL1 rating criteria, the unbiased results speak loud for our products: quality without compromise.

To ensure high levels of quality at Unilite, we use strict governance over our manufacturing & testing process. Protective clothing, overalls, hoods, gloves and shoe covers are mandatory when entering all facilities, with air shower chambers blowing off dust particles to minimise pollutants from outside. Inside, meticulous care is taken to keep every inch of the room in a dust-free state.  From injection moulding, plating to storage, the entire process takes place in a controlled environment.

An in-house laboratory was set-up for rigorous performance and reliability testing under controlled environments.

We are always eager to embrace new and innovative technology, as evidenced by our shift from tungsten lights to premium advanced LED-based units.  However the light source is only part of the package.

We look for improvement in all elements of our manufacturing process, from lenses and reflectors to housings and switches. Every enhancement brings the user experience to a higher level, manifesting Unilite’s ultimate principle of meeting and surpassing user expectation. To view our full range please click here
