PAR-56 Can

The PAR56 Can comprises of a 300 Watt PAR56 lamp housed in an aluminium can. The luminaire produces a soft-edged, oval-shaped light beam that is a function of the lamp type chosen. The lamp can be rotated inside the Can to align the oval shape of the light beam anywhere between vertical and horizontal as desired. The beam angle is not adjustable but a range of lamp types provide a selection of beam angles and it is a quick task to change the lamp from one type to another.

The PAR56 Can is a versatile, low-cost luminaire that is suitable for general stage use on small stages and its low weight makes it ideal for touring.
