RAIN CURTAINS

A row of falling water which can be enhanced with coloured lights to reflect off each water droplet.

The opaque wall of rain is a perfect way to create a barrier between rooms or to partition an area within an open space and can be used as a backdrop for a display, as a screen or even as a striking centrepiece. The length of the rain curtain depends on your requirements (the largest installation we’ve completed to-date spread up to 10 metres in width, with a combined length of 30 metres across several curtains).

This particular water special effect an be used at both indoor and outdoor events, but is susceptible to the wind.

EVENTS INCLUDE

  • Product Display Features – Our rain curtain has been used to showcase a wide range of products including beers, watches, moisturisers, mobile phones and trainers.
  • Statement Features – The effect can be showcased as an attractive decorative feature at your event. In the past, we’ve created huge room dividers, backdrops for top tables and surrounds for wedding cakes.
  • Exhibition Stands – We’ve incorporated rain curtains into a number of exhibition stands. The falling water is a great way to draw attention to the stand or showcase waterproof features of a product.

CLIENTS INCLUDE

  • Samsung – When they launched their latest phone, Samsung wanted to highlight its key waterproof feature. We built two instore rain curtain display units and suspended the phones in front of the falling water.
  • Little Mix – We’ve produced two music videos with the popular girl band including content for one of their tours.
  • L’Oréal – The global cosmetics giant were holding an intimate product launch in a hotel suite. We built them a sleek display cabinet to exhibit their latest moisturiser.

DANCING FOUNTAINS

Our dynamic fountains combine pulsing jets of water and bright LED lighting.

As the fountain moves between one shape and another, this simulates the effect that the water is dancing in time with any accompanying music.

The animated fountain can be installed for entertainment purposes at your venue – into an existing body of water such as a lake, pond or river, or alternatively, we can construct a dedicated tank.

EVENTS INCLUDE

  • Illumination Events – These pop-up events are becoming more and more popular, where enchanted forests and historical venues can be seen in a whole new light with illuminated trails and walks.
  • Weddings – Some venues will not allow firework displays, but this water special effect offers up a great alternative. Fountains can run throughout the event or be used as a showcase entertainment piece. They’re also a great backdrop for photographs!
  • University Balls  – Our fountains have proved to be very popular during the May Ball season in Cambridge, during which all colleges compete to put on the most spectacular party.

CLIENTS INCLUDE

  • Kew Gardens – Christmas at Kew is a magical and enchanting after-dark trail, which has featured our dancing fountains positioned in the lake in front of the beautiful Palm House.

INDOOR FOUNTAINS

We have a range of fountains which can be used indoors, from small decorative features to large scale bespoke builds.

Our entry-level ornamental fountain is 2.7 metres in diameter. It features a marble effect surround and central plinth with cascading water, which is illuminated by three submersible lights, alongside a perimeter ring of small intricate water jets.

We can also offer larger or rectangular fountains including custom build designs that can be incorporated on top tables, entrance walkways or stage backdrops.

RAIN EFFECTS

We love to talk about it, it changes by the hour, it’s unpredictable – the great British weather! It rains when we don’t want it to and it doesn’t when we need it, so if you need a reliable source of the wet stuff then look no further.

Our rain effects are flexible to meet your requirements, whether you require a light shower or dramatic deluge inside or outdoors.

WATER PROJECTION

Water projection can provide a unique screen on which to project images and video. Its unique feature is that the screen can appear instantly from nowhere and surprise the audience with floating visuals and imagery.

There are two different methods to produce a projection screen – a vertical drop using a rain bar (which is most commonly used for indoor applications), or mounted on a truss. For larger outdoor projects, we use a plate screen which can be floated on a lake, and rather than falling, the water is pushed into the air making a semi-circle screen.

EVENTS INCLUDE

  • Illumination Events – Winter walking trails through enchanted woods and popular family events. Many of the sites contain lakes where mystical videos are played on a huge water-screen.
  • TV Shows – We’ve even provided a projection screen for Take That when they performed their song ‘The Flood’ on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.
  • Product Launches – For example, Hitachi Rail were presenting their new highspeed train at the OXO Tower in London and wanted an original way to display their product video.

CLIENTS INCLUDE

  • Center Parcs – Centre Parcs were looking for something more environmentally friendly and in-keeping with their natural forest location to replace their usual fireworks displays. As a result, we provided some exciting content on a water projection screen alongside colourful water fountains and a light show.
  • The BRITS Pink was being awarded with the Lifetime Achievement award and part of her ten-minute performance included a collaboration with Freckled Sky – specialists in projection mapping. Of course, they used our water screen as their canvas.
