Boxing Light Hire for a Fight to Remember?
Whether you’re planning on a daytime or a nighttime match, a boxing ring requires some serious lighting, and we should know; we’ve been in the stage and cage lighting business for many years. Here at True Sound Hire we believe in satisfying your guests and yourself with only the best lighting, sound, staging, and AV equipment, and we have plenty to choose from. One of the number one questions that we get from individuals and companies all over London, Surrey, Guildford, and surrounding regions such as Portsmouth and Farnham, who are interested in cage fighting lighting hire, is how much lighting they require to completely illuminate their ring.
With multiple three minute rounds and a brutal force to endure, your boxing brutes deserve to be represented and respected in the ring. They already need to worry about having their hands wrapped, a mouth guard in and of course their gloves; they shouldn’t need to worry about the lights above their head as well.
Capturing Your Match in a Good Light
Boxing ring lighting hire must be placed carefully so that you don’t flood too much light in one area, which is why we usually suggest that you base your lighting on the size of the ring, as well as the number of viewers in attendance. It you’re playing to a big arena, for instance, you’re going to need some intense lighting equipment to brighten the match as it progresses. However, if you’re playing to a small crowd, then a few basic lights will do. Remember to cast a glow on each fighter’s corner, and to have a good view of the ref so that those in attendance can track the scoring.
Lights for this type of activity are usually raised by using trusses so that they shine down on the match, rather than in the eyes of the boxers or the audience. Lighting is generally meant to make things easier to see, so we don’t want you to be blinded by them instead. We offer truss packages for hire along with the lighting equipment for boxing rings, which makes for an easy setup and disassembly, and means that you aren’t left with those in attendance asking for their money back.
Getting the Equipment to Get You Started
Lighting equipment for boxing rings comes in many shapes and sizes, like our lighting hire packages which include items such as moving head lights, DMX controllers, smoke machines and truss plinths. Our website includes a pricing list, as well as an expected timeframe for setup and how many guests certain lighting packages will benefit. If you’re nervous about which kind of equipment to use, you can feel free to give us a call with any questions or concerns that you might have. There are many sites across the internet with information on boxing events and the type of lighting required, but many times this can be outdated or supplied by individuals who don’t interact with this equipment on a regular basis.
For boxing you’ll want to invest in some architectural lighting with a soft glow and a high output. You can also consider something with different colours, and maybe even a smoke machine to increase energy as boxers are entering the ring.
Selecting a Comfortable Price Point
Choosing boxing event equipment hire doesn’t have to be costly. In fact many of the products that we sell here at True Sound Hire are relatively cheap and will still supply you with the quality that you expect. One thing that many of our clients have trouble with is the assumption that hiring lighting for events like these will be too expensive, and while it’s true that some items cost more than others, there are lighting packages for every pocket book here.
Creating a budget before you begin hunting for equipment can better help us serve you in finding items within your guidelines. If you plan on charging for the boxing match then you may be able to afford more lighting than if it’s a simple affair for fun. If you are collecting for tickets then adding more boxers to the card can often bring in a larger crowd, which may increase your need for lighting, but could also give a higher payout at the end of the event.
