TSL invests in Ayrton Perseo Profile
Lighting and rigging equipment and services specialists, TSL, has a diverse portfolio of clients across the live events industry. With an impressive remit that encompasses music, theatre, corporate, sporting and e‐sport events, the need for reliable, versatile lighting fixtures to handle this varied field of activity is paramount.
“Last year, when we looked to evaluate and increase our range of outdoor profiles, we were intent on investing in LED fixtures which were robust and flexible enough to cope with the many demands we put upon our equipment,” explains TSL director, Loz Wilcox. “We were looking for a fixture which could support our clients on their exterior lighting projects. We tried out options from several manufacturers and chose Perseo above all others for a number of reasons. It’s a great feature‐packed fixture, with all the things you’d expect from that range and size of fixture and, to me, it feels like the IP65‐rating is just an added bonus! We view it as a light that can do everything, which can be spec’d on any show, not just outside events.”
60 Perseo Profile fixtures were purchased from Ambersphere Solutions, Ayrton’s exclusive distributor in the UK, following a demonstration from Ambersphere’s managing director, Glyn O’Donoghue. Fifty of the IP65‐rated fixtures were immediately put to use by lighting designer, Adam Povey, on a high‐profile, themed woodland walk in the north of England. “The event ran from October to January in the worst of weathers, during which time we had only one swap out,” says Wilcox. “Considering the usual attrition rates for IP65‐rated fixtures, this is
unprecedented and we are very impressed. Perseo is fantastically reliable – so the crew love them too as no‐one wants to keep returning to fixtures rigged outside in the cold and wet!”
“By choosing Perseo we have acquired a light that works for us for the full 12 months of the year, not only with a great deal of functionality, but as an extremely useable, versatile addition to our rental stock for designers all year round. “
