PRODUCT: Grand Ice Chandeliers
MANUFACTURER: Creative Nightclubs LLC

Creative Nightclubs, a manufacturer of nightclub elements and materials based in Boynton Beach, Florida, has introduced a new lightweight chandelier that can create distinctive multi-colored ceiling effects that make the interior of a casino look like an ice palace, but for a fraction of the cost that such effects would have set you back just a few years ago.

Grand Ice Chandeliers can be used with LED, fiber optic or fluorescent lighting. Once installed they open up creative vistas that run the gamut from fixtures that look like melting ice to 16 million colors and 5,000 pre-programmed magical effects using LEDs and DMX controls. The effect, says the manufacturer, is more like a “light fountain” than a chandelier.

LED lights are revolutionizing illumination technology, and because they are so inexpensive to power they achieve the effects while cutting the electric bill. Right now, the only place where you find this particular effect is at Miami’s Kaffe Krystal.

The product is made from Illusion Flex Ice film wrapped around frames of metal or plastic that are so feathery that the chandeliers almost appear to float. Unlike ceiling effects and chandeliers that use heavy glass, these fixtures don’t present a liability problem. They are easy to install, clean and maintain.

Each fixture is custom-made for each customer’s specific ceiling. The fixture is delivered flat-packed in two boxes and assembles with two people in less than eight hours. It can be installed using cables. A custom-made assembly manual is included with each order. Prices start at $84 per running foot. Even though they are custom-made, the lead time currently is still about two weeks for delivery.
