Fixtures from SGM’s new POI (Permanent Outdoor Installation) range was the solution for a tropical installation at Old Lahaina Luau in Maui, Hawaii. The traditional Hawaiian experience includes a feast and authentic entertainment, attracting guests to nearly full capacity year-round.
The Old Lahaina Luau show now features a rig dominated by SGM fixtures. Garou Blancan from XYZ Cultural Technology chose 16 i-2 POI wash lights and six G-Profile POI moving heads to create this island show.
The fixtures were installed on four motorized towers designed by Serapid USA extended to heights of 30ft/ 9m during the show and lowered at the end of the evening. Garou decided to utilise SGM fixtures based on his prior experience:
“I was a big fan of the Giottos and used them on multiple occasions. I hadn’t used SGM products since the rebranding and launch of the POI fixtures, so I was excited to work with them for this installation.”
The fixtures are encountering rain, salty air and high temperatures, which make durability a necessity. To combat the elements, Garou chose the POI fixtures. SGM standard products are known for their IP65-rating, while the POI series took it one step further offering a marine grade IP66 quality. Built to endure extreme conditions, the SGM POI fixtures come with a five-year warranty and customizable features, such as custom RAL colours to meet any lighting designer’s needs.
Garou stated: “The products are of the highest quality. SGM is the first and only of its kind with IP-rated moving heads. The POI option is much anticipated, featuring custom elements that other brands cannot offer; e.g. the fact that the fixtures come with C5-M corrosion resistant paint and without a display.”
Garou concluded on his overall experience with SGM and the POI products: “SGM’s LED fixtures really match the needs of our domain. This project is a permanent installation and we plan to use these luminaires for the next 10-15 years. I would recommend SGM products to other lighting designers.”
