Tempest is launching its latest rental and staging projector enclosure system – Fly – at ISE 2024. Fly’s innovative chassis folds flat into less than half its volume for ultra-compact shipping and storage. Fly enables rapid setup and teardown, with minimal tools, saving on time and labour. Weighting in at just over 20kg (44lbs), Fly is less than ¼ of the weight of a standard Tempest Typhoon rental enclosure. Fly is available in four models and is compatible with a wide variety of projectors up to 50k lumens, including all the most popular models in the equipment rental space.
Fly comes with all the usual Tempest protection measures, against airborne pollutants, weather, heat, cold and condensation. Fly also features an AR-coated port glass door, that opens without tools, making last-minute lens changes quick and painless. For extra-long lenses, a deeper Lens Extender door is available.
“We are very excited to showcase our latest rental enclosure system in Tempest Fly,” says Tim Burnham, President, Tempest. “Its truly innovative design makes it perfect for event work requiring a lightweight and transportable enclosure solution, while maintaining the build quality and attention to detail that our professional partners expect from Tempest. The creative people we serve often change their minds, and to be able to switch landscape/portrait, or swap out lensing at the last minute, is truly priceless. Fly will save our partners time and money, while offering them the projector protection they need.”
For large outdoor events, the lightweight Fly Rigging Frame allows three enclosures to be stacked – landscape or portrait – and tested at ground level before being craned into position onto platforms or rooftops. The frame assembles in a few minutes with only a screw gun, and packs away into a very small space, weighing in in at only 35kg (77lbs).
