Light Output

The average multi-beam has 2 or 4 Xenon lights, each 2000 - 4000 watts or 208 - 332 million candle power. Our searchlight output is 7,596 watts and a whopping 1.7 BILLION candlepower.

Beam Size

Yes, size does matter. Typical searchlights have a beam size of 13-16 inches. Our searchlights sport an 18" size beam.

Generator Noise

A truck or trailer mounted searchlight including most multi-beam lights require the use of a gas or diesel engine generator, similar to a utility construction generator. Some of these engines run up to 3600 RPM and make a lot of noise, thus making it impractical to place these lights near your venue's front doors or by the "Red Carpet" at various events. As a result, the lights must be placed in a location away far away from your event. Our searchlights are powered by the newest technology and only require to be plugged into a standard wall outlet. Our searchlights can be placed as close to the door as you want or even on the roof-top for pure un-obstructed view.

Lower Cost

Trailer or truck mounted lights generally require that a technician be present to operate the lights thus adding additional rental cost. Our searchlights require a very easy briefing on how to operate, namely, where to plug it in and how fast do you want it to rotate? Our searchlights are super easy to use and super bright for just the right effect to attract attention to your event.

Rental Rates

Our NASA HD-1 searchlights are a full motion, one head searchlight which projects a single beam at 1.7 billion candlepower that can be seen for 3-18 miles, depending on atmospheric conditions. It rotates in a continuous 360 degree pattern (clockwise or counter-clockwise from 0 to 30 RPM's) or may remain stationary. The beam creates "Wow!" factor, attention, high-performance-lighting effects and also pin-points the location of your event.

Our searchlights are approximately 46 inches tall x 24 inches wide, feature an 18" diameter beam, weigh 118 lbs. and require 10 amps (120 volts) and placement on a flat surface. Our searchlights are much more portable compared to a truck or trailer mounted light. The beam(s) can be adjusted to avoid interference with buildings, trees or traffic. You can even place the lights on an elevated platform or roof-top. A 50 ft. or 100 ft. extension cord and timer is INCLUDED at no extra charge.
