With an ever-increasing demand for events in South Africa, The Gearhouse Group of Companies has taken ownership of 142 Robe fixtures which form part of a lighting investment for their branches in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban as well as for their Inhouse Venue Technical Management team.

With imagination and flair, Gearhouse South Africa is a leading rental company in South Africa, and the new gear will complement their service from supplying small functions like product launches or conferences to the larger events such as impressive stadium concerts.

Listening to the wish list of their technicians around the country, and obviously taking into account the rider requests, Gearhouse purchased 48 x Robe BMFL Blades, 46 Spiiders and 48 LEDBeam 150s from local distributor, DWR Distribution.

“The BMFLs are currently the highest discharge light output in the JHB lighting arsenal, coupled with the fastest shutters in the game and high-speed precision movement, and the phenomenal shutter versatility makes them ideal for corporates, theatre use and concerts,” said Branch Operations Manager, Stuart Andrews.

“The multi-functional, diminutive Spiiders are a notch brighter than the Robe 600 which they will replace in the Durban branch and offer superior control on channel programming” adds Goodman Nyoka, who heads up the Lighting division in the Durban branch. Andrew Gleave, Cape Town Lighting Operations Manager is also pleased to add these fixtures to his arsenal.

“The LEDBeam 150s provides great eye – candy in a compact housing and let’s face it, Designers cannot ever have enough quality beam light, so they are also always in demand,” commented Adrian Skinner, JHB Lighting Operations Manager.

Gearhouse make every effort to keep ahead of their game and good gear with an even better team, seem to be a winning combination.
