How many blacklights do I need?
The easiest way to estimate how many high power black lights you’ll need for your event is based on the number of guests you’ll expect.
The most accurate way to determine how many blacklights you’ll need is based on the room dimensions (Length x Width x Height) you’ll need to light.
Number of lights for a gym
A popular use for blacklights is in a gym. A standard midsize school gym is around 120ft x 60ft x 25ft and would need 2 lights to light up one half or 4 lights to light up the whole gym. Position the lights in each of the corners of the room.
While each of the lights can be used on the ground using the included yoke stand, we recommend placing the lights higher up and aiming down. In a gym you can do this with super clamps and attaching them to basketball hoops or frames already in the gym. Or you can use stands to elevate them in each of the corners and aim towards the middle. The super clamps or stands will help you get the best blacklight effect possible.
How easy is setup?
Super easy setup.
- Aim where you’d like to shoot blacklight.
That’s it! Done!
If you want more control over the light you can dim the lights and make them strobe using the onboard controls right on the light.
The lights also offer full DMX control (fancy lighting controls for professionals).
How big are the blacklights?
Each black light rental is the size of a soccer ball (12.75” x 11” x 8”) and weighs 11lbs. Lights have a beam angle of 60 degrees allowing for targeted backlight over a long distance. They are long throw meaning that they can shoot blacklight over a long distance. One light will easily create a blacklight effect in half of a dark gym (60ftx60ft).
How powerful are the blacklights?
These are the most powerful LED based blacklights available for rental. They are provide up to 10x times more blacklight per light than any other rental UV blacklights available online!
This means using less lights, at the lowest cost, and up to 10x more blacklight coverage for your event. These LED based blacklights offer onboard dimming allowing you the greatest control over the blacklight effect at your event.
These lights use the latest and greatest LED COB (Light Emitting Diode Chip On Board) technology so you get even blacklight without the color shadowing and lens distortion associated with blacklights that use individual LED chips. This means more glow and less weird colors that aren’t blacklight.
What’s the difference between blacklights?
There is quite a difference in the type blacklight and what they are used for. Not all blacklights are created equal!
LED Blacklights: LED blacklights are the latest in blacklight technology and are superior for events.
- Very bright
- Very durable (50,000hrs until “bulb” replacement)
- Long throw
- No heat
- Low power draw
- No color shadowing/distortion (with COB blacklights)
These lights are revolutionary when it comes to getting a strong black light glow at the best price possible. They are perfect for throwing lots of blacklight over both large and small spaces. Unlike older and smaller LED light fixtures, these light fixtures use the latest COB (chip on board) technology to ensure you get the best blacklight possible without color shadowing.
All of our black light rentals use the latest in COB LED technology to give you the best blacklight for the best price.
Traditional Fluorescent Blacklights: Traditional blacklight fixtures look like long fluorescent lighting tubes. These are the old style of blacklights.
- Good for small spaces (bedroom size)
- Good blacklight effect
- Cheap per light (you’ll need A LOT of them!)
- Works well with specialized invisible UV color paints
- Break very easily
- Need A LOT of these lights to get a good effect
- Very short throw (will not project well over distance)
These generally look like a good bet because they appear to be the cheapest per fixture, but you’ll need so many of them to get a good blacklight effect they aren’t cost effective in large spaces. Not only that, exposed glass tubes are dangerous for guests and get very hot. Fluorescent tube glass is extremely thin and very very sharp.
Sodium Hallide Blacklights: These lights are like the overhead lights you might see in a large gym.
- Long throw
- Work well with specialized invisible UV color paints
- Need 10+ minutes warm-up time
- Extremely hot
- Very fragile (may explode)
- Very expensive
- Often contain dangerous toxins like mercury
- Consume A LOT of power
Sodium halide black lights aren’t ideal for one time events or for use outside of professional lighting technicians. Lights are expensive, fragile, toxic, use a lot of power, take forever to warm up and are noisy.
