Enlightened of Bristol invests in Ayrton Perseo IP65 Profiles
Bristol‐based, Enlightened, one of the largest event suppliers in the south west of the UK, has recently invested in a stock of Ayrton Perseo Profile IP65‐ rated fixtures to service its busy events schedule. Enlightened specialises in full production services, supported dry hire, design, and delivery of permanent installations, as well as sales, skilled repairs and maintenance to a diverse range of clients and venues.
“Corporate and private parties and events, large outdoor events in winter, festivals in the summer, installation, sales ‐ basically, we do everything for everyone!” says Head of Hire and Production, Dave Thorpe. “Bristol is a good hub for small to medium companies to which, along with many small companies and theatres all over the country, we cross hire equipment. We therefore make a point of only investing in the very latest in top quality entertainment technology.”
Enlightened’s diverse fields of operation demanded a fixture that could also do ‘everything for everyone’. “When we make new investments we look for a product that will fit into at least two markets,” explains Thorpe, “and that is exactly what happened with Perseo. On the one hand, it is a waterproof fixture but equally capable of working in a theatre environment; I also know that it will fit into any rock and roll or festival stage that we will do in the summer, and will happily sit outside at one of the large scale events we supply for the winter. We have a regular client in Scotland who will have a consignment of Perseo in operation from mid‐ October to January and I know the fixture will be fine. The lights are brilliant!”
Enlightened purchased the Perseo Profiles from Ayrton’s exclusive UK distributor, Ambersphere Solutions.
"We have had a great relationship with Ambersphere for years and they always provide an excellent, reliable and honest service,” says Thorpe. “Perseo may be slightly more expensive, but for a little bit extra you get a whole lot more. The pricing of them is sensible across the country and that, combined with their popularity, means we will have a swift return on our investment.
