KAF adds Claypaky Axcor Spot 400 fixtures
The Kunstlinie Almere Flevoland (KAF) in Almere, the Netherlands, recently installed 16 Claypaky Axcor Spot 400 fixtures in its theater. Claypaky distributor AED Nederland provided the compact, bright LED moving spotlights. “We were looking for lights that would work with a wide range of theatrical performances, concerts and event rentals,” says Maarten Bolt and Menno van Houten, Light technicians at KAF. “We did a long shootout of fixtures, and the Axcors stood out for their design, performance and attractive price. We had used the Axcor Spot 300s once and liked them, so we opted for the new Axcor Spot 400 models.” KAF is a theater and exhibition center and features three performance spaces in the theater and an exhibition hall. While lighting usage at KAF varies from show to show the new fixtures are typically positioned with 12 in the hood and four on the floor, according to Bolt. “Although the Axcors are brand new, we are very satisfied with the their performance so far,” he reports.
