    Beam Benders

    Share this page:

    City Theatrical Beam Benders allow the light output of a lighting fixture to be located at a right angle to the fixture. A fixture can point horizontally and shoot its light straight down, or can point straight down and output its light horizontally. 

    Designers have many uses for the Beam Bender, including shooting around obstructions, working with low grids in which a fixture pointing straight down would be an obstruction, and on dance sidelight booms to light the maximum of dancers’ legs without lighting the floor.

    Beam Bender for Dance

    City Theatrical's Beam Bender is ideal for theatres and studios with low ceilings, and is most commonly hung close to the ceiling to bend beams of light downwards to help lighting professionals gain vertical space.

    Lighting Designer Jules Fisher brought us the idea of the Beam Bender and we built the first ones for his New York production of A Christmas Carol
