Compare multi-beam rates to ours, and you will see we offer a much better value for your money. When it comes to searchlights, why would you think of using anything else but our 60 inch W.W. II Carbon Arc Searchlight ? The Carbon Arc is the brightest man made light source there is! Anything less is just a big flashlight.
Searchlight advertising is like any other form of
Radio, TV, or Newspaper. The price you pay for advertising time
the air or space in a paper, depends on the number of people you will
able to reach. The only difference here is you don't
have to pay that much to get the very best, and you reach thousands
when you use a Carbon Arc searchlight. Carbon Arc Searchlights
a much wider demographic group than any other media. From young
to the very old, they are all attracted to the light beam!
The average multi-beam light has a beam output of 26 inches.
Our Carbon Arc searchlight has a beam output of 5 feet!
Due to the design of the mechanism that moves the multi-beam beam units around, the maximum angle of these lights are fixed to 22.5 degrees from vertical, pretty much pointing straight up in the air much of the time .
Our Carbon Arc beam is adjustable to rotate as low as the surrounding terrain will allow. The lower the angle, the greater the attraction radius can be. See the above map!
The average multi-beam generator uses a small gas or diesel motor generator similar to a small utility construction generator. Some of these motors run anywhere from 1800 to 3600 RPM which generates as much noise as a gas powered lawn mower engine.
Our Carbon Arc Searchlight is powered by a BIG 6 cylinder engine like the engine you would find in an automobile. Our engine operates at 1200 RPM. The engine is surrounded by sound deadening material, so it operates as quiet as an automobile engine at idle.
Multi-beam lights are a by-product of the Xenon movie projector lamp house developed in the late 60's to replace carbon arc lights in movie theater projectors.
Carbon Arc Searchlights were designed, and built as a searchlight to search out, and illuminate enemy aircraft at over 20,000 ft during
World War II. It has a 5 ft, 5 mile beam length visible for over 35 miles. Best for attracting people from a larger area.

Some have told us they had driven over a 1/2 hour just to track down our Searchlight Beam. On three occasions, our light was booked along side a multi-beam light. Side by side, it was obvious how weak the multi beam light is was compared to the brightness of our carbon arc. On each of these occasions, the multi beam was turned off, and returned.
