The theater currently playing “The Lion King”, one of America’s most famous shows currently at the New York City, has selected LED Waves' Owl Pack LED flood lights for on and off stage as retrofit replacements for high-maintenance and high-energy consuming halogen lights.

The Owl Pack outdoor/stage LED flood lights made in the USA – perfect for saving energy with low maintenance for dramatic visibility over large areas. LED Waves lights are built to last. Owl Pack units are waterproof (rated IP65), features CoB technology from Bridgelux & Citizen. They use their unique thermal management system to last long years of service.

The Owl Packs are DesignLights Consortium® Qualified Products List recognized to be reliable and safe. As with all LED Waves’ USA-made LED lights, each Owl Pack is covered by their 5 year warranty.
Owl Pack 200 Watt.
"LED Waves has helped in lowering our bottom line electric usage which has been a major factor in lowering our carbon footprint... The old 500W halogen T-3 units, when the bulbs burn out would have to be changed from a Genie lift. Now with the LED Waves' LED units, they are maintenance free."

- Stephen, Lighting Designer for The Lion King.

This theatre is one of the most popular theaters in the U.S., currently the host for the box office musical "The Lion King", based on the Disney animated film setting records of the week on Broadway. The theater is also a home for many other productions such as the "West Side Story", "Cabaret", and "Fiddler on the Roof".

The theater’s technicians were impressed by the quality of LED Waves Owl Packs. "Our old work lights had a color temp of 3000k and it was nice to find a perfect match with the 3000k LED Waves lights." Stephen went on further noting that the new lights will help the team to work better and safer while saving up to 80% from using conventional lights and from A/C bills due to lower heat emissions.

"Our old halogen work lights were a total of 12,000 watts and our new LED Waves lights use 1/5 of the power for a total of 2400 watts... Reducing our electricity consumption is a big plus."

- Stephen, Lighting Designer for The Lion King.

With LED Waves lights the theatre of “The Lion King” has reduced their labor costs. Low maintenance and low liabilities that come with LED technology make it possible to significantly reduce the effort in changing lights and ballasts. Traditionally used halogen lights required especially high maintenance due to their short-life cycle. LED Waves' exceptional quality makes it possible for the lights to last 50 times longer. "LED Waves has supplied the Theatre with the most efficient and attractive products that the industry currently has to offer."

He continued to note that LED Waves local manufacturing facility located in Brooklyn, NY, made it exceptionally helpful in delivering their customized solution in record time. This helped them achieve their production goals without hesitation. He also added ‘The cost of the products has been more than reasonable compared to ordering from other LED manufacturers.’

"All of our off and on stage work lights have now been changed to LED Waves units."

The show must go on!
