EFFECT MACHINE HIRE
Trilogy Audio has a large selection of effects machines available for hire.
Our effects hire options include:
– Smoke machines
– Cooled low-fog smoke machines
– Professional dry ice low-fog machine
– Hazer machines
– Bubble machines
– Snow machines
Smoke machines give off puffs of dense smoke for manually activated periods of time usually up to about 30 seconds long. They need to reheat periodically. Placement of a smoke machine is best away from a draft so that the smoke doesn’t blow away. Our smoke machines are available in a variety of sizes depending on your requirements. Suited mainly for indoor functions or enclosed outdoor areas.
Our cooled low-fog smoke machines use smoke fluid and ice to cool the smoke so that it hovers on the ground for some time before warming and rising. These machines work best in an enclosed room where there is little to no air movement (no aircons or fans). The smoke will eventually rise like a standard smoke machine.
A professional dry ice low-fog machine uses heated water and dry ice in separated compartments to “boil” the dry ice and give off large clouds of carbon dioxide which looks great and sinks to ground level because CO2 is heavier than air. Once it warms fully, the CO2 will then dissipate and will not rise. These machines require about a 30 minute heating period and give off a large cloud for about 2.5 minutes before requiring reheating for another 10 minutes. Used for dramatic entrances, stage effects, first dances at weddings, they are great for photos and that wow factor.
We hire hazers for a wide variety of professional function applications. These machines operate constantly without the need for reheating, giving off a regular stream of blown, fine smoke to create a mist which is great for enhancing dance floor lighting or giving a wintery, misty effect. Suitable for indoor and protected outdoor areas.
Hire a bubble machine for champagne parties, kiddies parties, wedding ceremonies or hen dos. Bubbles are fun and carefree and add a glimmer of shine and happiness to any event! We supply our machines with fluid for about 2 hours use. Bear in mind that the bubble fluid is very slippery, so we strongly recommend that these machines are used on non-slippery surfaces only, such as grass, rough concrete, brickwork or carpets. Suited for indoor and outdoor use.
Snow machines use a proprietary liquid which creates a fine snow fall, and will eventually leave a bed of snow on the ground. Great for photoshoots, winter themed parties, or Christmas parties. While the snow is not cold or real, it will evaporate leaving little to no residue. Beware of fake snow which is very slippery and does not evaporate.
All machines are supplied with a quantity of fluid which is usually more than adequate for a single function use. Additional fluid can be purchased. All fluid is non-toxic and usually has little to no smell. It is mostly made in Europe to strict professional specifications and standards.
