Highlite Showgear introduces Rain Domes

Highlite Showgear has introduced its new Rain Domes for moving heads.

Showgear Rain Domes allow you to safely deploy your indoor fixture in wet conditions. Two platform sizes and three transparent sleeves are available to accommodate many different moving heads and fixtures.

Showgear Rain Domes are designed to withstand copious amounts of rain and keep your fixtures safe. Two types of platforms and three types of sleeves, which are available separately, accommodate all but the biggest moving heads. The smaller 40cm platform can be combined with a sleeve 40cm by 52cm. For the bigger 60-cm platform, there are two types of sleeves available: a cylindrical 60cm by 62cm one, and a bulb-shaped 60cm by 85cm one.

A conveniently placed power inlet and multiple outlets provide an easy way to power your fixture underneath the sleeve. The Pro Power True input is daisy-chained to a Pro Power True output on the back, and Pro Power True, Schuko, and Pro Power outputs on top of the platform. A waterproof opening in the sleeves allows easy access to all cabling of your moving head, without the need to remove the whole sleeve. On the bottom four M12 threaded holes can be used to install spigots for mounting the platform on a truss totem.

Showgear Rain Dome also has a built-in pressure switch to prevent unwanted damage. The switch will automatically shut down all power when inside pressure diminishes. This can be temporarily overruled by an included bypass switch. This way, your moving head will not suffer from burned-out motors if the sleeve accidentally deflates and impedes the head’s movements.
