Nelson Enterprises Helps Pompton Lakes High School Step Into The “LED Future” With CHAUVET Professional
POMPTON LAKES, NJ – Tough economic times have never discouraged the citizens of Pompton Lakes from investing in the future. In 1932, while the United States struggled through the Depression, the city built a new state-of-the-art high school. That school is still standing, so too is its commitment to staying in the forefront of education, as evidenced by its new LED theatrical lighting system anchored by a collection of COLORado and Ovation fixtures from CHAUVET Professional.
“Pompton Lakes High School made a choice to move forward with LED technology and everyone from students and parents to teachers and administrators couldn’t be happier,” said Bill Nelson of Nelson Enterprises, which installed the new system. “This project was completed just in time for the school’s production of Shrek The Musical. With ten ellipsoidals, twelve battens and three cyc lights, the stage is filled with color.”
Nelson replaced two rows of “outdated continuous strip lights and a mishmash of 10 incandescent ellipsoidal fixtures” with an LED rig that features 12 COLORado Batten 72 Tour fixtures, hung in two rows of six on stage pipe battens, which were part of the original rig. Also included in the rig are three Ovation C-640FC cyc fixtures upstage and 10 FOH LED ellipsoidals -- all controlled by a Strand Lighting Neo console. “The school still has three quartz scoop lights that are used primarily for work lights and band/orchestra,” said Nelson, “but we hope to replace them soon with LED fixtures.”
The advantages of Pompton Lake High School’s new LED system extend far beyond the looks created on stage. The school’s head of buildings and grounds, as well as the board of education administrators, appreciate the energy savings that have resulted from the new system along with the extended life expectancy of the LED fixtures, according to Nelson. Plus the stage is considerably cooler and valuable space has been saved by eliminating rheostat dimmers. - livedesignonline
