THE DIGITAL RAIN CURTAIN

Creating Art from Water

Our brand new interactive digital rain curtain (sometimes referred to as a digital water curtain or digital waterfall) is modular in design and controls water droplets to create falling text, shapes and images in varying sizes.

The possibilities are endless with this water effect. You can determine the text or shape that appears in the water, or stop the water and get your guests walk through as an entrance feature. The digital waterfall comes complete with sensors to stop the water flow, so you don’t have to worry about your guests getting wet!

WATCH THE EFFECT IN ACTION

PRODUCT INFORMATION

In the world of customisable digital water screens, liquid becomes a canvas for artistic expression. This cutting-edge technology harnesses the power of water to create stunning visual displays that captivate and inspire.

A digital solenoid water screen is a dynamic installation that uses controlled streams of water as pixels to display images, patterns, and animations. It consists of a grid of solenoid valves that release precise bursts of water at high speeds, forming intricate shapes and designs in mid-air.

By modulating the flow of water through these valves, we can create a wide range of visual effects, from simple geometric patterns to elaborate scenes that seem to defy gravity. You’ll need to supply our team with your graphics, logos or text in advance of the event, in a black and white graphic file (shades of grey cannot be displayed).

Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the digital water screen also has practical uses in advertising, branding, events and live performances. Its ability to display custom graphics and messaging makes it an effective medium for conveying information and engaging audiences in a number of settings. Whether it’s promoting a brand, telling a story, or simply creating a memorable experience, the digital solenoid water screen offers endless opportunities for creativity and innovation.

 

SUITABLE EVENTS

  • Product Launches – The digital water curtain’s ability to display a logo or key messages within water makes it an ideal effect for any corporate event. Draw focus toward your business and grab the attention of guests from the get-go!

KEY CONSIDERATIONS

  • Location – We require a flat surface to position the product.
  • Visibility – The visibility of the water can be improved with the addition of lighting. The best water visibility is obtained against a dark background. To ensure maximum readability, standard letters should not be narrower than 45px.
  • Power – We will require a power source to run the pumps.
  • Water source – We will require a water source (a standard kitchen or bathroom tap will be sufficient).
  • Water tank width – 1.5m for indoor installations / 2.5m for external installations. The water wall length is 1m smaller than the total length.
  • Dressing – The product can be dressed to align with the style of your event.

DETAILED PRODUCT INFORMATION

INSTALLATION & SETUP

At Entertainment Effects, we specialise in temporary installations for events but do not work on permanent installations.

We start by building a water tank which doubles as the water source and catchment area for the falling water.

Amount of water in the system:

  • 250l x total machine length for outdoor installations.
  • 500l x total machine length for indoor installations.

Next, we construct a truss support system for the water screen.

A submersible pump then pushes the water up a feed hose into the rain bar, which then falls back into the tank below.

The unit can then be dressed in black or white.

Our specialise team then test the digital waterfall feature.

You should allow at least a six hour window for set-up and testing.

RESTRICTIONS
  • We require a flat surface to build the digital waterfall on.
  • Active power: 1400W.
  • Number of standard electrical sockets (16A): two for a machine with a length of 5m and less, or three for a machine with a length of 6m and wider.
  • Surface resistant to pressure of <300 kg/m2.
WILL MY GUESTS GET WET?

Under normal conditions, the falling water will not spray out of the tank noticeably. However, it cannot be ruled out that water will not wet the floor as a result of wind, viewers touching streams of water, during assembly or disassembly.

For outdoor use, winds over 6mph can deform falling images and cause water to fall outside the tank or wet people nearby.

To reduce the risk of wind:

  • Place the water printer in front of a wall or artificial background, protected against the wind
  • Put the machine sideways to the wind.
  • Do not place the machine in constrictions e.g. between buildings, where the wind increases.
WHO SUPPLIES OUR DIGITAL WATERFALLS?

We own the equipment ourselves, and have access to additional screen kit in the UK if we need to fulfill extra width or provide multiple installations at a time.

HEALTH & SAFETY

Obviously water and electricity can be a dangerous combination, but our pumps are IP68 rated and specifically designed for this purpose, so a digital waterfall is actually very safe.

Key considerations:

  • Any events where small children are attending will need to ensure that they are supervised as the water tank poses a risk.
  • Legionella’s disease is often a concern for many event organisers when an airborne water element is included. Luckily, Entertainment Effects take all the necessary health and safety measures to avoid this.
