PAR Can information
Conventional lighting utilises halogen lamps and is commonly used for lighting surfaces, both small and large. PAR cans are the most common armatures and can be found in theatres, pubs and showrooms. Thanks to their robust housing, they're often used for mobile applications. They are available in various sizes.
If you want to accurately light a specific surface, you should use Theatre Spotlights. These armatures are often equipped with a barn door or a zoom function/focus that optimises the light beam.
Blinders are very bright lights that usually light up only for a second to create an effect. If you're interested in more lighting effects, be sure to check out our scanners, moving heads, lasers, stroboscopes and Decorative Effects.
If you want to use PARs as your basic light source, you have several options. You can choose a Raylight reflector with an A1/244-lamp (500 W, very fast and bright, narrow light beam similar to NSP) or a pressed glass lamp. Pressed glass lamps are available with various types of light beams. The abbreviations stand for:
VNSP: Very Narrow Spot. This is the narrowest beam available. This spotlight is especially well suited for effect lighting (for a pin spot or an Aircraft lamp, for instance).
NSP: Narrow Spot. This spotlight has a narrow light beam. They're are ideal for discotheques and clubs that do not require the lighting of an entire room.
MFL: Medium Flood. This light beam is moderately wide (right between NSP and WFL). This is the most popular lamp. It is suitable for effect lighting, yet lights up a large part of the room as well.
WFL: This is the least focussed light beam (especially suited for lighting large surfaces).
