– More about Zero150
Zero150 is a gallery spotlight with narrow 4 and 9 degree optics and magnetic quick change lenses. The 4˚ narrow beam width is really important as it is difficult to achieve with LEDs. Galleries with tall ceilings need narrow beam spotlights as the diameter of the beam gets larger and more diffuse the further away you get from the light source; narrow beam lights are better for lighting sculpture. The snap on lens is perfect for ‘selling’ and ‘public’ galleries with rolling art collections as it makes the focusing element much faster and allows us to change the beam width to wider beams, or add other accessories key to the focusing of the artwork.
