Snow Machine Setup and Placement for renting a fake snow machine

Snow Machine Setup and Placement
Snow Machine Systems are not created equal when comparing snow machine models & brands when on the job site. Each machine has its place for the job you need them to do. Here are examples of snow machines setup and placement in the field.

Snow Zone are formed by place a number of Professional series snow machines is a planned pattern considering many factor.
mercedes benz show T 1500 snow machine
Zigmont Magic F/X Inc. provide the Mercedes-Benz National Dealer 2014 Mercedes-Benz National Dealer Meeting in Alabama, for the Sprinter Meeting rollout a room full of Snow Effects. The audience was treated with a room filling snow effect.
Snow requires practice and knowledge of what snow machine equipment models and brands is out there and available. The use of fans and grouping machines is the basic secret.
The T 1500 has a snow machine built into a fan. My experience tells me strategic placement of 8 machines and wind fans along with the days wind currents and moving machines during the event would be better than 16 machines. Best placed in grid pattern with snow machines on each side.
This will give you the coverage depending on the air flow. Since this is an outside event wind will be a factor. If the wind is blowing in the direction that the machines are pointing then it will help the distance that the machines covers. If the wind is working against the snowmachines then you might not get the expected coverage.

You need to understand what snow machine your using and if that system is Right Set Up for you and your Venue. The systems to select from are The Professional Series, The Commercial Series, The Studio Series and the Consumer Series of snow machines. The differences are how real the snow looks, how wet or dry it is, and how much volume and distance it travels which can vary. Some companies never tell you what brand they are using, some only use one brand forcing that model to the job.
It is very difficult to compare identically priced snow events from different sources as snow machines all do the same basic function, make millions of cluster of bubbles at an event, with snowmasters machines that's 10's of thousands of bubbles (per machine) per minute other consumer brands have much less output per minute and much larger less realistic looking snowflakes. While some snow machines look alike and they all have a basic design of operation which is pumping fluid and blowing and spraying fake snowflakes. But when renting snow machines, the machines are not made equal in performance and features, they don't all have the same standards of excellence from one machine to another.
Knowing the snow machine Brand and Model is knowing the results.

Our Falling Snow Machine System is the Benchmark for Snow Generating Systems
For those who want the very best realistic simulated snow flakes, falling and blowing snow, allow Magic F/X to custom design an installation of our superior high volume machines that’s right for your location. Our system uses Patented Technology devices and fluid for realistic simulated snowflakes for snowfall events both indoor and outdoor. We can use our fake snow machine system to simulates Flurries to large scale falling and blowing snow that can be placed on free standing tripods, trusses, roofs, awning, batons, balconies, or a catwalk. Our snow falls on cue and dissolves on contact, leaving no residue spots with absolutely no clean up.
We have the safest and most realistic snowfall effects available on the market. With no clean up.
America's Finest Snow Events can provide full service snow events or snow machine rentals
America's Finest Snow machines featuring our High Range - High Volume Artificial Snow Machines which Evaporates Within 30- 90 Seconds Of Air Time. Allow the # 1 number installer and rental house of snow falling events plan the logistics and execute your project. We maintain the highest industry standards and use the latest state of the art equipment. We have 8 snow machine options. We use the latest developed Evaporative Snow® machines.
We are often hired after a client has rented or bought one of the cheap, consumer grade commercially available inferior fake snow machines. These other snow machines have a great tendency to produce larger agglomerates, which in turn lead to excessive moisture buildup in the surrounding area while the larger flakes looking more like soap suds falling. Plus they don't get much distance.
The final result with OUR system is a great output spray of evaporative dry snow that creates an artificial snowfall that is truly free from wet residue of any type. The illusionary snow that is produced ranges from a gentle cloud of snow in a wide horizontal area to a blizzard snow covering a large area. The individualized smaller flakes that we provide is a cloud of gently falling snow that is truly more realistic than anything currently available.
The dry test - place your hand in front of the snow output spray and let it build up on your hand then rub your hands together for a few seconds and you will find that the snow has disappeared and your hands will be dry.
Our system will allows us to be flexible and creative. With a combo of a snow machine and special effects fan we can produce a shower of dry falling "soft fluffy snowflakes" which evaporate on contact and covering a 40' x 80' area with just one grouping of machine-fan combo.
Installing the snow machines is easily done on outside rooftops, balconies, ledges, or second floor levels on the inside. Simply add the lighting of the snow and it's perfect.
We will select the right choice of machines for your location. We have machine packages for all budgets.

Disney Theme Park have two T 1100's on a T - Crossbar with weather covers installed. This style install will provide a great amount of snow. These machines should not be compared to the arctic snow machine which for whatever reason has a look-a-like snowmasters logo. But the T 1100 performs like no other machine and the arctic snow machine is out of the T 1100 class of machine. Disney can use whatever they want and they choose Snowmasters T 1100 and T 1500 machines. Snowmasters the Theme Park industry standard.

More snow than you can imagine at the City Of Tampa Tree Lighting festival 2006- 2007- 2008.
We can obtain a unbelievable snowfall or snowstorm with blowing blizzard storm effect going long distances from heights of 14 feet above the ground. The different colors show the different machine options.
Snow machines produce a “cone” of snow which is smallest near the machine and disperses as you get further away creating a “curtain effect” Our snow units archives distances of 25 - 80 feet indoors at a 30 foot height, while with outdoors winds going further. We can increase the distances and direction of the overall effected area through the use of judiciously place effect fans in combination of grouping our high output high - volume machines.

This distance chart represents an bird's eye view of our different machine options with the snow machines placed indoors at 30 feet from ground with unobstructed air flow. The chart to the right shows the higher the special effect snow machine is placed the further the distance and and wider coverage at 15'- 20'- 25' - 30 feet.
You can see the V pattern that a T 1500 is producing going 50 foot outward by over 20 ft wide each. Like the chart above and below.

Theatrical snow machines offer the look of real snow without the mess, discomfort or expense that would be involved with producing real snow. Mount the snow machine above the area where you want the snow either on truss a tripod or our floor mounted snow machine. You can always point the machine the up into the air at a 45% angle. The reason for this is very simple, natural snow falls straight from the sky to the ground. With the exception of blizzard conditions, snow doesn't usually swirl up from the ground and then fall back down.
