Laymance lighting products are available throughout the Houston area, and while they are a respected brand, they don’t offer the breadth of features that Phantom’s products do. Optical framing projectors are impressive pieces of technology, and every brand has its own set of compelling features.
Phantom’s projectors, for example, are built with the most advanced LED lighting technology on the market, so they can generate a precise, powerful beam that is also efficient and reliable.
What makes Phantom’s projectors the superior choice when compared to Laymance lighting?
- Masking methods: Most companies only offer a single masking method (a hand cut template) for their projectors, which greatly reduces ease of use and versatility. Phantom can also provide a hand cut template for its projectors, and this is ideal for subjects with a unique shape, like a sculpture. Paintings, photographs and other rectangular pieces, though, are usually paired with adjustable shutters. Adjustable shutters are easy to use and can illuminate a variety of subjects with only minor tweaks. That means new exhibits can be switched out at a moment’s notice with only minor adjustments.
- LED technology: All of Phantom’s art lighting projectors are designed with LED technology, which is the most efficient and reliable on the market. LED lighting is an improvement over halogen projectors in nearly every way. They last for years with minimal maintenance, can be tied to a variety of controls, and they are safe to use with any artwork, even delicate pieces like oil paintings.
- Voltage options: Other companies typically only offer a single voltage option (120V). Phantom has a 120V version of its projector but also offers a 277V version of its optical projector. This model is comparable to many stage projectors used in professional settings.
- Housing options: Laymance Lighting projectors are only available with a single housing option, which can make for a difficult installation in some settings. Phantom produces five housing options for its projectors, each of them formatted for a particular purpose. For example, Phantom’s Top Access housing is designed for settings where there is no bottom access available, while its New Construction housing is perfect for buildings that don’t have a sheetrock ceiling in place yet. Extra housing options means the installer can easily set the projector and do it without having to tear up the ceiling.
- Transformer options: Few companies allow the client to pick the transformer of their choice, but Phantom considers this another important part of the customization process. Electrical transformers are lighter and smaller, making them easier to conceal and place in compact settings. Magnetic transformers, though, run at a lower temperature and last much longer, so they only have to be replaced occasionally.
- Ease of installation: Laymance, Wendel and other optical projector brands can only be installed by technicians with special training. That limits a client’s options when looking for repairs or help with installation. As a result, it increases the cost to install these products. Phantom’s optical framing projector does not require proprietary knowledge to install and can be placed by most professionals. That reduces the cost of the job and means a home or venue will be able to get support quickly.
With Phantom’s range of optical projector options, a venue or homeowner can get the perfect fit for their artwork, no matter the size or shape.
