Look Solutions Unique Hazers go to The Edge
Posted on Friday, July 17th, 2009
The Edge is New Zealand’s leading performing arts, commercial entertainment and convention facility, and a central feature of Auckland’s Aotea Quarter. The Edge manages three of Auckland’s landmark buildings – Aotea Centre, The Civic and Auckland Town Hall – as well as the city’s largest outdoor CBD space – Aotea Square.
Malcolm Ibell is Head of Lighting for The Edge and recently he approved the acquisition of two Look Solutions Unique Hazers famous for their tremendous amount of haze, ability to warm up very quickly and an LED display that is easy to read and easy to operate.
The Unique hazers will compliment the venue’s existing inventory of oil crackers and satisfy the requirements of the shows whose riders ask for glycol based hazers.
“We are seeing an increasing number of touring shows asking for Unique Hazers,” commented Malcolm. “After extensive research, and talking to production people world-wide, I determined that the Unique’s combination of reliability, control and output made it the logical choice. All this has been borne out in practice too.
“The hazers will be used in all our venues on many of the thousands of events that are staged at The Edge every year, particularly those events whose requirements preclude the use of ‘crackers’. These include opera, musicals and shows that contain a projection component. In fact the AV guys love the Uniques as it means no sticky crap in their projectors!”
