   ■ Lighting ■ Rigging Curtains Studio Custom Manufacturing

Theatrical and entertainment lighting installations have represented the core of our business since 1947. We have installed dimming, control systems and fixtures through out the continental US.

Sample Specifications

Below are a series of sample lighting specification and riser diagrams. These are listed as representative items only and refer only to the performance dimming and control; fixtures and load circuit distribution are not included in these samples. We prefer to work with the project design team and the end user to tailer each space to its inteded size and use.

Simple Theater - The basic plan is intended for small worship spaces, elementary schools and general meeting areas where a simple control and dimming system is needed. It consists of 12 or 24 channels of controls with a simple control console and easy to use architectural control stations.

Intermediate Theater - Intended for middle schools and other medium sized auditoria where simplicity and ease of use is required with advanced preset control of house and stage fixtures. The system includes dimming for performance and house circuits with a variety of control options.

Network Theater - As theatrical productions become more advanced the technology used to control them also advances. The next generation of entertainment control protocal known as ACN or Architectural Control is now a consideration when planning a system. This new control signal allows for two way communication between you conolse and the devices it is controling.
