LED Uplighters & Washlights

Uplighters are used to wash an entire wall, ceiling or floor with colour, and until recently uplighters had a lamp and were restricted to one colour at a time. L.E.D up-lighters contain a large range of popular combinations which can be changed without the need for filters or bulb changes. They are the latest technology in wash lighting and can be used for a variety of applications such as venue dressing, in houses, marquees and halls, special effects in photography and film, architectural installation or even temporary lighting for workman.

Mood Lighting or LED Up lighters? Are they the same thing?
Many people consider LED up lighters to be ideal form of Mood lighting. In fact, the traditional Parcan would have been one of the very first professional Mood-lighting effects available. The latest LED uplighters even have a colour fade mode, which gradually changes through the colour spectrum creating a fantastic effect in houses, halls, bars, clubs and anywhere you want to set the right Mood.
Can I change colour of a venue with uplighters?
Uplighters work best on lighter surfaces, with darker walls and ceilings needing more lights to get the full effect. Uplighters will transform your venue, reflecting colour off every surface making every object within its range glow with colour. You can even connect a controller to the lights, making colour and programming changes during the course of the event continuing the transformation of your venue. They are the best, and most high-tech solution in venue dressing and decoration.
How much with led up lighters cost to hire or rent?
Prices can vary from anything as small as £15 for a single uplighter, but costs for larger venues really will depend upon the venue size, or your application. You contact can us for advice on what you need, and if you provide some details on your venue we can recommend just the right amount of light required.
What size party venue can I cover?
Uplighters are extremely versatile, and you can always add another light for larger venues. We have vast experience in this field, and with the right details we can advise on the right uplighters for your venue.
Are led uplighting systems sound to lights?
Our uplighters do have a sound to light setting, which can be set to strobe on one colour to the beat of the music, or strobe between colours as the bass in the music thumps. You can create an extremely good party atmosphere with several LED uplighters all moving in sync with the music.
Will they get hot?
Traditional Parcan uplighters were notorious for their heat, and dangers created from its 200+ watt bulb. With modern uplighters, the LEDs are never hot to touch, and are perfectly safe to be covered behind a backdrop if necessary.
Are they easy to set up and use?
If you opt for our delivery service, our technician will set the lights up to your requirement, and position the lights correct to achieve the proper effect. Each uplighter does require a power supply which we can provide if needed, and if you wish to control the colour use our DMX controller we will interconnect the lights for you to do this. Our technician will then provide a quick tutorial on how to operate the controller to change colours and features during the event. If you are setting up yourself, we can pre-set the equipment before leaving our store and guide you through the set-up process if needed.
How much space will they use?
Uplighters will have a floor footprint of about 0,3 sq m, and can be position in areas so not to effect anyone at the venue. When stand mounted, you can fit up to 4 on a stand which has a floor footprint of about 1m sq’d. To fill larger areas you may require several lights separated equally across the base of a wall.
What colours are available?
Colours available are red, Orange, Gold, Yellow, Green, Baby blue, Royal Blue, Purple, Pink and White. You can also use colour fades to naturally filter through colours, or you can use a slider controller to manually select your colour from any end of the spectrum.
What can I do with LED uplighters?
LED uplighters can transform a venue from looking dull and dated, to vibrant and new, and are the most cost effective way to decorate walls and ceilings of halls, marquees and bars. These plug-and-play wall washers throw colour across the walls and ceilings, reflecting shadows, and highlighting curves and features of a room. You can set any colours to suit your room, and even change the colour of the light during an event to move the party on from brighter colours during the day to more warm colours at night. Up-lighters can also be used during discos and parties, changing colour in time with the music, or even to dress a restaurant during a meal with single colours or soft fades. They are an extremely versatile and essential tool for dressing wedding venues, marquees, halls, bars and function rooms.
LED uplighters are bright, powerful, and incredibly energy efficient, using very little power to produce their effects. Traditional Parcan uplighters are their complete opposite, getting very hot, blowing bulbs and burning £’s of power in the process. There is no better way to transform your room for your special occasion.
