When Harry the hirer Productions were looking to bring new upgrades to their impressive equipment inventory, there was one unique lighting fixture that drew their interest and this was the GLP Force 120 Fan. After requesting a demo by Showtools International, Harry’s were very impressed with its capabilities and decided to acquire the GLP Fans.
Practical and useable in many applications, the Force 120 features a high speed, variable direction fan unit with internal RGB LED lighting. It incorporates high torque motor technology for fast movement and quick speed changes. “Coupled with internal lighting, this unit is multi-use for dramatic effect, such as a fun addition, as a unique scenic element, or just being used to move air in a rugged versatile housing, depending on what we need them to do,” stated Simon Finlayson General Manager at Harry the hirer Productions.
The Force 120 measures just over 4.5ft square. The large diameter variable speed fan, which can run at speeds as low as 30 rpm, right up to 750 rpm, is designed to create stunning scenic effects, or be used as a great air mover. Simon explained, “Internally, it features bands of LED tape which light the actual fan blades and can be controlled with differing levels of density, allowing multi-color projection onto the blades, or alternatively to turn them into a single striking element.”
Simon went on to explain other features that caught his eye, “The Force 120 also has an auto sensing power input, a sturdy construction, built in transport wheels and multiple rigging points and secondary safety attachment points. Sturdy construction ensures that the fixture can be moved around easily without much difficulty and fear of causing damage making its placement exceptionally versatile and an easy fit into any stage design.” Simon said.
Simon concluded, “We’re excited to add the GLP Force 120 fans to our inventory. The fan will allow our us to provide our diverse cliental an effective, different lighting look and feel in a variety of ways including standalone, flown arrays or random hangs.”
