TOMAR Dual-Mode™ Technology

Designed LED Lighting Technology, Not just a light-show

Dual-Mode™, Not just Dual-Color

When specifying your next apparatus/fire truck, rescue, or ambulance, make sure your technology is working as hard as you do.

TOMAR’s Dual-Mode™ Lighting Technology is like you, adaptable. When we say Dual-Mode™, we mean a lamp which is designed to perform different tasks, depending on its environment. Every scene is different, and some emergencies such as wildfires, don’t always have a defined scene area.  

However, the task of making a warning light also a scene light is challenging. Most times, warning lights can’t handle sustained heat caused by the LED’s staying on, and reduce their intensity so they don’t burn out. TOMAR solves this with a patented process of sealing our lamps (T-Seal™) which incorporates efficient thermal material to mitigate these negative effects caused by heat. This is just one more part of our engineering process which makes TOMAR’s lights uniquely adaptable – like you.


If lights were cars, then optics would be the “drivetrain” putting the “power to the ground.” Our in-house designed optics were engineered with the lamp’s functions and capabilities in mind. With that brings the ability to project the lumens from multiple LEDs (physically different light sources) to where the light is intended to go. TOMAR’s Clear Vision Optics™ mated to our patented water-proof seal reduces stray light, and gives unparalleled performance in both flashing warning mode; and steady scene-illumination mode. Combine this with the efficacy provided by our thermal regulating systems, and your scene just got a whole lot brighter.

Simply put, our optics give you less stray-light in your eyes from warning lights and more usable white light on your scene.
Designed. Not just a light-show.

More Light in the Wildland

In the bush, do you still run warning lights, or do you shut them off? If you shut them off, wouldn’t it be great if the money your department spent on wiring those lamps could continue to work for you? And if you leave them on for vehicle identification, wouldn’t it be great if the lights notified AND helped you see? We believe even lights need to pull their weight to help create safety.

Watch this Type 3 Apparatus in the wildland with no other light sources, and notice the ground around it as it travels down the road, activating it’s full Dual-Mode™ package.

Less Chaos More Work Light in the City

Fire Fighters and EMS workers can take advantage of TOMAR’s Dual-Mode™ tech in metropolitan areas, as well. When you’re working the scene on the side of your truck, your Dual-Mode™ TOMAR Lights can change from pulsating warning-lights, to helpful additional scene lighting. Because it’s selectable by side, the rest of the emergency vehicle can still warn traffic.

Dual-Mode™ Lighting can help calm chaotic scenes, and allow you to work safer and more efficiently at night.
