On the following pages, we shall explain the different types of lighting fixtures and give some examples of their uses. Several of the products can be used in different ways, so they have been included in each category. We have also suggested products that work well with a fixture.
Technical specifications for each of our products can be found on the lighting products page.
LED OR TUNGSTEN LIGHTING?
Both traditional tungsten lighting and LED lighting have advantages.
LED lighting is generally low power, remains cooler and most of our products have colour mixing abilities.
Tungsten produces a warmer glow and offers a larger area of coverage - especially usefully for theatre or venues with high ceilings.
We have a variety of products and options available to create a truly personal touch to your event. These can include coloured glass gobos for a logo, or a silhouette design on a metal gobo.
Most of our traditional lights can be fitted with gel filters in a colour to suit your event and LED lights can be mixed to a colour or colours.
Paper lanterns are available in a wide range of colours and can be themed to suit your event.
