New in to Hire

As we've started to install more (and generally sell more) LED luminaires, we've started to be asked for them in hire. Now, it's a tricky one - do we put high end luminaires like the Ovations or the smaller eye candy fittings into our hire stock?

Coincidentally, we've just been asked to light a ceilidh band as part of a hire for someone's birthday party which made the decision for us - eye candy! In this case the LEDJ Slimline 229 IR (IR because it can controlled with a pocket size Infra Red remote) - we think we'll send them out in pairs something like this...

Two of the Slimline 229's on a two lantern tee bar on a black Doughty stand with all the mains cables and a data link cable so that the two units will do the same thing - or you can control them with DMX.

Being an RGBA unit you can get some nice colours out of them for small washes but the inbuilt programs make them look spectacular from about 12 feet away. At the moment, we have two pairs in hire and we're thinking around £30 per pair of fittings.

If you want your own - we can sell these units too, the full specs of the units can be found at the link here. Call our hire department for details of availability or if you want to come and see them working.
