On the Astera front, we’ve also increased our stock of the ever popular Astera AX3 Lightdrops.

We’ve added the new Portman P1 Mini LED light to our lighting hire inventory. This decorative effect light has a retro look with modern LEDs. Promising to make a big visual impact, it produces a warm retro halogen effect that is perfect for TV or stage. Whilst the P1 boasts large proportions, it actually has a very low power consumption.
