Snow Machine Rentals

Snow Machine Placement

Once you have your snow machine in hand, the first decision is where to place it. Ideal placement of a snow machine is largely determined by the type of event and venue. Regardless of event and venue, placing the machine up high is a great place to start. In order to create a realistic flake, it is important that flakes fall from above. While this seems obvious, many event organizers understandably try to find ways to avoid placing the machine up high. Refilling machines and controlling units up high can be difficult. While a machine placed as high as possible is idea, there are a few tips to cheat a bit. Our Snow Machines, can shoot snow up at as much as a 30 degree angle before it falls down. The more hang time the flakes have, the more time they have to evaporate for the driest flake possible. If you don’t have the height, you can also make the flakes smaller with our included remote to speed up the dissipation rate.

Snow machines can sit on any flat surface or easily hang from a truss or light stand. They can even be zip tied up to more non-traditional spots like trees or balconies. Our units can shoot 25-40ft in distance depending on the height of the unit. Since our machines shoot snow out before it falls, it is important to have the unit off center so it shoots towards the snow sweet spot. For a stage, it is ideal to have the snow machines shoot from the wings. Therefore for a Christmas tree lighting, a snow machine placed directly above the tree would not give the best snow on the tree itself.

When placed outdoors, wind becomes a major consideration on machine placement. Even a mild wind can make the flakes fly through the air just like real snow or fog would. Therefore, if wind is consistent, make sure to take it into consideration as you place your snow machine. For a more inconsistent wind, multiple snow machines from different angles may allow you to hedge your bets for a great effect despite air conditions.

Glow Races and Glow Runs

Glow Runs are the latest rage as a fundraiser or standalone event. Whether it is a 5k, 10k, or half-marathon, blacklights can be used to create an unforgettable blacklight race experience. There are many ways to setup a glow run.

Racers should wear white or neon colors for the best fluorescent effect. Often times fluorescent paint or glow powder is distributed or sold to participants at the start to get everyone glowing brightly. Sometimes, race organizers will even sell splash zones to local businesses where they can splash racers with more paint along the route in exchange for advertising space.

Some race organizers focus on having blacklighting at the start and finish lines of the race. The rest of the race can be lit by glow necklaces, flashlights, and/or traditional lighting. More commonly, we will see races also have isolated “glow zones” throughout the course. Often times the blacklights will be hung from a tent which the runners will run through.

Regardless of where the blacklights are set up throughout the race, the most fun is often an exciting after party for all participants after the glow race. This often consists of blacklights, a dj, or concert and even more paint or paint powder to make sure everyone glows brightly.

Our lighting product line includes Color changers and Blacklights which use state of the art LED diodes for maximum power and low power consumption.

Many of our other products use consumable fluids and liquids to produce their effects. Our solutions are all non-toxic and biodegradable with no added colors nor scents.

All of our products are packed for shipping in a thoughtful way to reduce our environmental footprint. All of our units are packaged with reusable padding. All fluid containers and boxes are produced including recycled materials and all packaging returned to us is recycled upon disposal. Our packaging also is designed to reduce weight and dimensions in shipping in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint.

In addition, renting is an extremely green practice. Our blacklights are as powerful as up to 15 4ft fluorescent fixtures. On top of the energy savings, the waste and contamination created by easily broken bulbs is eliminated with our self-contained LED fixtures. All of our units can be used many times without any refuse created.

While we publicly recognize our commitment to the environment on Earth Day, our sustainable practices are a standard part of our daily operations in accordance with our company values.
