Larson Electronics' Magnalight Fixtures Again Chosen for Cinematic Applications

Press release date: November 17, 2011

Lighting equipment from Larson Electronics' is continuing to prove popular with set designers as yet another film crew chooses their explosion proof line of lighting equipment for use in production of a sci-fi action thriller. The Mecha-Monster movie 'Pacific Rim' began filming in October, and set designers have chosen Magnalight explosion proof fluorescent lighting for use in their set designs. This new film marks the latest in a growing line of cinematic productions that have utilized Magnalight lighting and highlights the modern design and appearance of Magnalight lighting equipment. The Magnalight Hal-24-2L Hazardous Area Fluorescent Light is a two foot version of the popular HAL-48-2l series of explosion proof lights which have proven popular on the Hollywood film scene and has been chosen for use on the set of the new film, "Pacific Rim". This series of explosion proof lights features a heavy gauge aluminum housing and tempered glass hinged door designed to provide rugged and safe operation in hazardous locations. However, the heavy duty explosion proof construction of the HAL-48 and HAL-24 series is also proving aesthetically appealing to set designers, most likely due to its no nonsense appearance and modern design features. Equipped with F24-T5/HO fluorescent bulbs, these two foot long lights produce prodigious amounts of high quality light, further making them an attractive choice for those seeking the crisp illumination associated with industrial grade light fixtures. The Magnalight HAL-48 and HAL-24 series of explosion proof lights have appeared in several already released productions both on television and the big screen including; The Green Lantern, Gi Joe, I Am Legend, and the HBO series True Blood. With still more productions such as the coming Dark Knight Rises finishing filming and having used Magnalight lighting equipment on the set, it is interesting to note the futuristic and sci-fi nature of these films. With their modern appearance and clean aluminum finishes, these lights are certainly capable of fitting in with the futuristic appearance of a sci-fi movie set and apparently this has not escaped the notice of set designers. With yet another appearance in the futuristic action thriller Pacific Rim, Magnalight explosion proof lighting is proving to be effective in not only hazardous locations, but entertainment applications as well. "Once again Magnalight lights have hit the silver screen appearing on the set of "Pacific Rim," said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics' "The HAL-24-2L and HAL-48-2L fixtures have a proven performance record for explosion proof fixtures; step forward to the movie industry and these lights have proven to be an integral part of the set design for this sci-fi thriller." Larson Electronics manufactures and distributes a full line of explosion proof lights and intrinsically safe lighting equipment. Magnalight has also expanded by adding film and entertainment lighting categories to better serve the entertainment industries.
