Wildfire

 

Wildfire took the special effects industry by storm when the manufacturer introduced 'long-throw' ultra-violet lighting fixtures in 1995. 

Wildfire's ultra-violet lighting effects are an important part of the behind-the-scenes wizardry at major amusements, rides and attractions. Disneyland, Universal Studios, Ceasar's Forum Shops and other world-class facility operators rely on Wildfire's UV fresnels to excite phosphorous materials for what has become known as the 'Wildfire glow.'
