|Le Maitre will be exhibiting with their German distributor LMP Lichtechnik at prolight+sound show 2006 in Frankfurt. Le Maitre shows a a range of products including the new Fake Flame and the new MVS Hazer as well as the the Stadium Hazer which was launched at Plasa 2004.
The Fake Flame is a patented product designed by Back Stage Technologies Europe (BSTE) and built exclusively by Le Maitre Ltd. The Fake Flame creates the illusion of real flames but uses absolutely no flammable products. The system was designed for use in theatres and theme parks as well as on concerts and in nightclubs where a flame effect is desired but it is simply too dangerous or just not practical to use gas. Better than silk flames and cost effective to run (2 ½ litre bottle of fluid gives over 100 hours of continuous operation), this system is suitable for fixed installations as well as touring and hiring. Each Fake Flame module weighs less than 25kg and is constructed from epoxy powder-coated steel with a matt black finish.
The unit can be placed on stage or mounted flush under the stage. Measuring 1.2m wide, 0.48m deep and 0.35m high the system creates a linear fire effect of 1.2m wide. The effect reaches the very edge of the unit so multiple units can be placed side-by-side tocreate as wide an effect as desired.
Coming soon from Le Maitre, the MVS or Multi Venue System Hazer will be a new addition to the hazer range. Some features of the MVS include variable high output haze (whisper to more than 80cc/hr), twin variable high output haze projection fans, 90 degree electronically variable haze output direction, 4-channel DMX 512, 3-digit led display multifunction control panel and dimensions of 34cm X 34cm X 16cm. The MVS weighs in at 11 kg.
