Gear Heads: Elation Professional Magmatic Crisp and Crisp Max

Elation Professional strives to set the scene this holiday season with Magmatic Crisp and Crisp Max snow effect solutions.

Elation Professional Magmatic Crisp and Crisp Max.

Designed, engineered and exclusively distributed by Elation Professional, Magmatic Crisp and Crisp Max are strong and affordable speciality effect solutions.

With its small size and easy mobility, Crisp is a set-it-and-forget-it snow effect. The unit weighs 15.2kg with a hanging bracket that doubles as a carrying handle. Crisp uses Magmatic’s specially formulated APS-4L dry-on-impact snow liquid to create a snowflake that mimics the look and feel of real snow.

Crisp Max includes a 20-litre fluid tank hidden inside a road case with durable casters for extra protection and easier portability. The unit’s 10m-long hose can be rigged on a standard truss or tripod stand and fluid can be extended up to 50m horizontally or vertically using 10m extension tubes with couplers that are available as an accessory. An optional 120° pan motor increases the coverage area. Crisp Max uses Magmatic’s specially formulated dry-on-impact snow liquid (APS-2L, 4L, 20L) to create a snowflake that looks and feels real.

Both the Crisp and Crisp Max are capable of producing high volumes of naturalistic snow with the capacity to adjust snowflake size for greater versatility. Small flake or large, short throw or long, these 1250W high-volume snow machines can project snow up to 12m with the flexibility to adjust to the occasion.

All Polar series snow machines feature a noise-blocking layer of insulation that reduces  noise for quieter operation. An all-in-one Air Pump Fan (APF) system together with an auto-clean feature lowers the risk of clogging and reduces the need for maintenance.

The Crisp and Crisp Max include an onboard LCD touchscreen control panel with manual and timer control options. They are industry-standard DMX-512 and RDM controllable, and offer wired and wireless control options.
