December 2023 Custom Work


Although City Theatrical manufactures a large catalogue of unique lighting accessories, we also like to do custom work, and can do it incredibly quickly. If you need a custom design or fabrication of metal lighting products, electronic design, LED power supplies, custom wireless DMX installations, or nearly any other challenge that you can come up with, call us and we will help you through it.  We’ve done custom work for major TV networks, theme parks, museums, architectural projects, and just about any other type if lighting project you can imagine.

The following projects - custom DINrail Mounts for Multiverse Node and custom Top Hats for Elation SIXPAR 100 - that we worked on during December 2023 exemplify the type of custom manufacturing work that City Theatrical does on a daily basis.

The client required custom Top Hats designed to fit Elation SIXPAR 100 light fixtures. The Top Hats had to be surface mounted and made out of stainless steel, such that they were IP67 outdoor rated for a themed entertainment project. Our team designed and fabricated the Top Hats for Elation SIXPAR 100 to fit the size, mount, and material specifications provided by the client.
