City Theatrical now offers three standard beam control accessories designed to fit the Martin MAC Aura PXL lighting fixture: the MAC Aura PXL Top Hat, Hexcel Louver, and Concentric Ring. These three beam control accessories were developed based on City Theatrical’s understanding of the unique accessory needs of professional lighting professionals, and the high demand for this moving light fixture in the market. Each new MAC Aura PXL beam control product offers control of stray beams and light spill.
City Theatrical’s engineers and craftspeople design and create beam shaping lighting accessories, like the new MAC Aura PXL Top Hat (P/N 2786), from our New Jersey-based factory. City Theatrical works with designers and manufacturers every day to develop new beam control products, and there are currently dozens of unique variations of City Theatrical Standard Top Hats available. Top Hats help prevent light spill from modern LED fixtures, which can extend nearly 180 degrees from the light source. Top Hats provide careful beam control for the MAC Aura PXL and many other moving light fixtures for entertainment projects.
MAC Aura PXL Concentric Ring
City Theatrical Concentric Rings deliver 45° cutoff of light spill but from a shorter depth. When space is at a premium, such as on moving lights hung in a tight rig, using a MAC Aura PXL Concentric Ring (P/N 2788) would be a top choice for designers seeking beam control. Concentric Rings are also used to create a "Svoboda-like" style on lighting fixtures that are in view of the audience.
MAC Aura PXL Hexcel Louver
Serving a similar beam control function to a City Theatrical Top Hat or Concentric Ring at a minimal depth, MAC Aura PXL Hexcel Louvers (P/N 2787) provide beam control and 45° cutoff of light spill. City Theatrical Hexcel Louvers use cells that are 3/8” x 3/8” x 3/8” deep, and provide a sleek appearance when mounted on the lighting fixture.
