It is ideal for club and party environments.

The Vertical Fogger is an atmospheric fog machine that includes high powered LEDs which can offer excellent colour mixing. It simulates pyrotechnical effects resulting in a superb C02 effect that will keep your audience entertained thanks to its white dense cloud effects. Users can link it to multiple units for even bigger impact and it can be controlled via its 4-channel wireless remote control or via DMX for more advanced users.

If you are looking for a versatile and compact lighting fixture then the Mini Profile Moving Head is suitable for you!
