To present a perfect stage event requires not only careful planning, stage lighting is also an important part. Whether it’s a musical performance, graduation ceremony or theater performance, the perfect lighting will help make a lasting impression on your audience.

We have a team of technical professionals who can help ensure you receive the proper lighting solution for your needs, a configuration to fit any location, and a lighting solution for every problem. Here’s our simple guide to choosing stage lighting for your school.

1. Cost

Nowadays, many users who need stage lighting equipment want to reduce costs and tend to choose cheaper lighting equipment, and schools are no exception. Although it is understandable to save costs, there are also cases where it is too cheap and leads to quality problems.

Although good stage lighting equipment may be more expensive initially, they can save you money in the long run. Why say that? For example, if you choose LED fixtures instead of halogen lamps, you can save more electricity. They also produce less heat, are safer, and require no bulb replacement.

Our stage lighting equipment can be designed to suit every budget, covering all lighting systems from small halls to large auditoriums. We can provide you with the best products at the best prices!

2. Safety

Safety is the most important thing, especially in a place like school. Therefore, it is important to choose a lighting solution that is sturdy enough for everyday use and does not contain anything that could pose a safety hazard.

To ensure that your lighting equipment can provide many years of safe, efficient lighting, we can provide you with all the necessary safety regulations and certifications. We provide EICR, PAT, LOLER and PUWER inspection, testing and compliance services and can handle any ongoing maintenance your lighting fixtures may require.

3. Easy to Use

Unless your school has trained technicians, some lighting equipment can be intimidating. Complex lighting solutions often involve complex hardware, software, and instruction manuals that may as well be written in hieroglyphics!

Fortunately, lighting solutions don’t have to be complicated. Choosing the right lighting solution that is both easy to set up and easy to use can save you time, money and technical headaches. For schools looking for an easy-to-use lighting solution, our stage lighting equipment requires only simple setup to work.

4. Reliability

The worst time to discover a substandard lighting system is on the night of a big student performance or end-of-year ceremony. Therefore, when choosing stage lighting equipment, you need to choose products from proven, trustworthy manufacturers. There is no benefit in purchasing a lighting solution only to find that spare parts are not available, or that there is no support when problems arise.

We have rich experience and are committed to providing users with industry-leading professional stage lighting equipment. In addition, we also provide good after-sales service to help you make better use of our equipment.

5. Size and Function

Regardless of the size of your hall, stage, or venue, it is wise to get professional advice before making a purchase. If you are only replacing an existing setup, you can just go with lights that perform just as well, if not better than the fixtures you are retiring.

To avoid having a system that is either too dim or, worse, turns everyone on stage blind when it is turned on, it is usually wise to consult an expert if it is for a new area or an extension to cover a particular stage.
