AQUA VISUAL FX

The Aqua Visual FX (as seen at the RSVP Show, the PLASA show and in the Never Forget musical) is one of today’s most innovative notice boards: "a waterfall notice board".

Le Maitre, in partnership with Pyrotek Special Effects Inc., is proud to showcase its latest and greatest special effect product line offering, the Aqua Visual FX. Aqua Visual FX is designed with a new and innovative water management system. The technology includes automatic and optical control sensors that allow complete water cycling and creative programming automation. The water modules are manufactured in 6ft lengths with the ability of interconnecting to produce custom water screen lengths of 12ft, 24ft, 36ft and 48ft. Additional 2ft sections can be designed for custom tailored requirements.

With the ability to exhibit a visual graphic-rich story of designs, shapes, logos, text and the capability to display custom artwork from controlled water droplets, the Aqua Visual FX is one of today’s most innovative notice boards: "a waterfall notice board". With its user-friendly software, the Aqua Visual FX can be customized to meet whatever its user desires. The system for showcasing falling water images, text and other types of water effects comprises of three major components:

- a water management system, which controls the flow of water to maintain consistent water-based effects.
- a central computer system, which manages the complete system, including the storage and the programming of sequences of images to produce complete “shows” or a series of water effects.
- a series of intelligent droplet controllers, which “pixelate” the falling stream of water.

On a par with the aesthetic display is the product quality. Designed by a team of technical engineers, the Aqua Visual FX has a complete water management system with automatic and manually controlled indicators, creating a spill proof system. It also offers three separate filtration systems to maintain the quality of the solenoid components.

ELECTRIC AIR CANNON

The Electric Air Cannon is designed to fire streamers, glitter or confetti up to 15 metres, at any angle, with minimum noise. It is particularly useful in venues where pyrotechnics are not an option. Each firing requires a small CO2 bulb to be simply screwed into the front of the unit, a lifting cap to be inserted into the barrel, followed by the consumables and then a back pressure cap over the end of the barrel.

FAKE FLAME

The Fake Flame™ creates the illusion of real gas flames, but uses absolutely no flammable products! It works by projecting coloured light onto a swirling screen of vapour in order to create a very realistic artificial flame. It is the nature of the swirling vapour which will determine just how visually effective this is. 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 deemed simply too dangerous or just not practical to use real gas. Far better than silk flames and cost effective to run (with 2.5 litres of haze fluid giving 60 to 80 hours of continuous operation), this system is ideal for fixed installations as well as touring and hire work. 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 to create as wide an effect as desired. The flame effect is best viewed against a black or dark background and with the vapour screen strip at or just above eye level. The Fake Flame system does not produce the most realistic effect in areas where air movement is present. The best results are achieved in completely still environments. Each Fake Flame™ module weighs about 70kg and is constructed from epoxy powder-coated steel with a matt black finish (so it will withstand touring). The unit can be placed on stage or mounted flush under the stage.

FLAME PASTE

Le Maitre’s new Flame Paste is a flammable paste that can be applied to surfaces. It burns with an even orange flame and a small amount of paste burns for a surprisingly long time. The paste is virtually invisible when applied. The paste can be used anywhere a small controllable flame is needed. It is safe for use inside in moderation with sensible control methods in place. A test in a controlled environment should be carried out prior to use and a risk assessment should be conducted. This paste can be used on stage to simulate a camp fire without the use of flammable liquids or gas. Flame Paste is best extinguished by smothering the container and starving the paste of oxygen. The flame can be extinguished by blowing the flame out, however the greater the burning surface area, the more difficult it becomes. To give an example of the burn rate, 200ml of paste was placed in a round container 75mm in diameter, it was lit and it burnt for 7 minutes and 30 seconds.

HAND-HELD EFFECTS - ACCESSORIES

Flash Paper is made from nitrocellulose and burns quickly and completely with a bright orange flame and leaves no ash. It can be used on its own, or in the Flash Guns and Flash Wands. Flash Cloth is a cotton based materia whichl is stronger than the traditional flash paper, but produces the same orange flame effect with no residue. It can be sewn into objects allowing the designer to create different effects that previously were not possible.

Due to the thickness of the material the burn rate is slightly slower than the traditional flash paper. Not to be used with Flash Guns or Flash Wands. Flash Cotton burns even quicker than Flash Paper, creating an instantaneous flash. For use in the Flash Guns, Wands and Hand Flashers. Flash Cord burns quickly with a bright orange flame and vanishes with no residue. A popular magician's trick.

The Double Electronic Flash Gun is the same as above, but has two barrels which can be fired one at a time.
