New products from Le Maitre

The Fake Flame.

30 October 2006

UK - The Fake Flame, launched at PLASA '06, is a patented product designed by Back Stage Technologies Europe (BSTE), and built by Le Maitre. The Fake Flame creates the illusion of real gas 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 deemed simply too dangerous or just not practical to use real gas.

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. Each FakeFlame 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.

FakeFlame is only available through Le Maitre and their associated distributors.

The M.V.S. or Multi Venue System Hazer is the brand new addition to complement Le Maitre's range of hazer machines, using Le Maitre's patented system. It has variable high output haze, twin variable high output haze projection fans and a 90 degree electronically variable haze output direction.

The Le Maitre Silent Storm is a remarkably quiet snow machine with built-in 2 channel DMX for both fan speed and flow control.With continuous high output and low fluid consumption it offers unrivalled performance and reliability, says the company.
