Are Lasers safe?
There are very clear regulations imposed by the government that ban dangerous lasers. Electromarket have DJ lasers that follow strict health and safety rules, which includes the use of internal filters that protect from laser hazards. All of our DJ lasers are safe as long as you avoid direct eye exposure of the beam and fix the laser light at least 3 metres away from your audience. If used with a fog machine, the smoke will decrease the danger and will make an astounding effect as the laser visibility will be enhanced.
*Plase note that buying unreliable lasers that lack filters, give off dangerous levels of infrared. So, it is worth investing in a laser from a reliable equipment store.
What colours and effects are there?
The standard available colours are RED, GREEN and BLUE. We also have purple lasers and full colour lasers including those that create yellow, gold and orange. Green is most popular because it looks brighter to the human eye at low laser power than the other colours and therefore looks most effective.
There are many effects that lasers can create. This includes beam lasers, the tunnel effect, the fireworks effect, animation lasers, hoop lasers, the firefly effect, cluster lasers, the full vivid colour effect and laser scanners. All of which can be chosen to be sound controlled.
Where can I use lasers and how do I install them?
DJ and Disco lasers are very popular in nightclubs, raves, bars, Discos and even home venues, as long as the space is correlated with the laser power and wavelength of the light. So the bigger the space the more laser power and wavelength it is safe to use.
The best place to install a DJ laser light is above the audience so that it is visible by everyone. Ekho lighting stands are perfect for this, keeping the lasers at around 3 metres away from the audience in order to keep them safe from the laser rays.
Do lasers need maintenance?
To maintain your laser lights just keep the body balanced during use, clean the lens with a suitable lens cloth after every use and hoover the fan to get rid of built-up dust.
