    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.
