Angers Ice Parc Gets Versatile Lighting Rig From Club Services and CHAUVET Professional

Most of the time, Angers Ice Parc serves its community as a public ice rink, playing host to a number of actives, such as youth hockey, ice karting, and skating classes under the auspices of the nonprofit UCPA. The versatile lighting system on the ice was financed by UCPA and installed by Club Services, and features CHAUVET Professional Rogue R2X Spot fixtures.

“We designed our lighting to be adaptable to the client’s needs,” said Jérémie Menore of Club Services. “This means the lighting can easily change, according to the event and time of day. For example, we will create a club type of lighting in the evenings, and slower, more colorful looks during family sessions. The lighting is essential to give life to the rink. It contributes to the general atmosphere during matches, shows and allows us to provide spectators with an immersive experience.”

A collection of 14 Rogue R2X Spot units is used to light the facility’s “Olympic Track,” and 10 of the 300W moving fixtures are deployed at a “Fun Track.”  The intense output of the Rogue lights (11,000 lumens at 5-meters) gives them ample brightness to cover the entire ice rink, while the 16.5° beam angle, two variable scrolling color wheels with seven colors, a 3-facet prism, and smooth gobo morphing open a wide range of opportunities to create unique looks on ice.

“The power of the Rogues was very important,” said Jérémie. “Thanks to their output, it is possible to have the necessary luminous flux despite the height. (The fixtures are positioned more than 12-meters over the ice.) We also rely on the Rogue’s interchangeable gobos to integrate the various sponsors of the Duc d’Angers hockey team.”
