The Guru Tegh Bahadur Memorial structure in New Delhi, India, has been brought to life with a new light show featuring fixtures from PR Lighting.
This memorial, which is situated on the city’s main highway, gives an insight into the life and teachings of the ninth Guru of the Sikhs.
Described as one of Dehli’s hidden treasures, the structure has a central pylon that represents Guru Tegh Bahadur while the three semi-arches represent his three disciples. Ten monoliths surrounding it represent 10 Sikh Gurus and disseminate their teachings.
Modern Stage Service (MSS) – PR Lighting’s Indian distributor – was brought in as a result of the company’s long association with the show director. The team specified 16 XR300 Beam and 12 PR-8802’s. Mounted on both the ground and the structure itself, they are triggered into action daily after dark from an Avolites Titan Mobile in conjunction with a Dataton Watchout system.
Equipped with 300W Platinum 15R lamp and convex lens, the XR 300 Beam produces a super-concentrated parallel beam with an incredible output, making it ideal for long throw applications such as this. The architectural, IP67-rated PR-8802 features two stacked heads, containing a total of 216 3W LEDs (54 each RGBW). With a lens angle of 14° (field angle 32°) it the lights are said to deliver an incredible output.
According to the MSS director everyone is delighted by the impact created by the new design. The new illumination has been described as “world class”.
