About Peerless

Peerless – Incomparable Illumination for All

Peerless® makes Lighting for People and the places we all inhabit – offices, classrooms, libraries, retail centers, transportation terminals, convention halls and other public spaces. Since our founding in 1892, the Peerless name has been synonymous with leading-edge design and an extraordinary quality of illumination.

Informed by decades of research studies examining lighting and its physical and psychological effects, Peerless’ architectural luminaires are among the most advanced in the marketplace, offering sophisticated elegance, the utmost in visual comfort and, above all, superior performance.

Throughout our design and engineering process, we painstakingly examine every aspect of how a product will perform: how it will appear in the environment, how efficiently it can be installed and maintained and what it will cost to operate over the course of its useful life. In fact, we’re an industry leader in achieving new heights in energy conservation and sustainability.

From our customers’ perspective, Peerless is remarkably open, helpful and interactive. We publish technical papers to help our clients make informed decisions about lighting systems. We also conduct frequent seminars to educate colleagues and exchange information about the principles and effects of architectural lighting.
