A Selecon solution the right mix for Glenelg
Posted on Monday, May 19th, 2008
Glenelg Shire Council recently purchased a large number of Selecon fittings for several performing art venues in the Shire, which included Portland Arts Centre, Heywood Community Hall and Casterton Town Hall.
After extensive research, Glenelg Cultural Services Officer Karl Hatton approached Lightmoves to supply Selecon fixtures to upgrade their still-performing, but well-worn lighting rig. “Many of our existing fixtures are between 20-30 years old and while most of them still work quite effectively, finding replacement parts and the cost of maintenance was starting to become an issue.”
After looking at a number of different options, Karl saw Selecon as the best value for money solution. “As this is a longterm investment, I wanted to find fixtures that represented value and reliability, which Selecon met rather comfortably.”
Lightmoves supplied 20 x Selecon Acclaim axial profiles, 2 x Pacific 23/50 Zoom profiles with GKV Lamp, 24 x Acclaim Fresnels, 4 x Acclaim PC’s, 4 x HUI 4 way cyc Battens and 1 x Pacific 18 Followspot. The majority of these lanterns are for use in the Portland Arts Centre, while the remainder will be located in the other two venues.
Some of these fixtures have been active in the Portland Art centre since February, with Karl and the technical crew very happy with both the results and the service from Lightmoves. “The few small technical problems we had were cleared up swiftly and without argument from Lightmoves, which was impressive.”
