BB&S CBL 1 Compact Beamlight

New Category of Lighting

BB&S Lighting introduces the Compact Beamlight (CBL 1) —a new type of studio, stage and architectural lighting. With a 5.5” footprint, these versatile LED powerhouses draw just 40W yet produce up to 4000-lumen output at 97 CRI. While other fixtures produce a wider, less defined beam, the CBL 1 outputs a hard-shadow rendering beam that fades from 100% at center to 50% at the edges, so it’s good for mixing and overlapping with other lights—while eliminating blinding glare.

Each fixture offers the identical 1.5 kg/3.3-lbs weight and dimensions of (165mm long, 140mm diameter) allowing quick repositioning within the same grid brackets or clamps as other CBL 1s.

Østre Gasværk Theatre

Østre Gasværk ceiling

496 BB&S CBL 1s have been installed in this exceptional old Gaswork from 1878, which has been used as a theatre since the late 1970ies.

They needed a light that would help enhance how beautiful this building really is – and as a bonus, it also works as stage lighting, should they ever need that;-)
