The effects classic: the disco ball
So simple and yet so beautiful: disco balls bring mood to the dance floor thanks to the simplest technology and light reflection. No matter whether the mirror ball makes colorful or white lights dance through the room, with it you inspire the masses and make them party. Since the 1920s, disco balls have been transforming dull halls into dance venues. When the lights are dimmed and the spotlights are directed at the mirrors of the rotating sphere, it creates atmospheric glitter throughout the room. But even after the end of the disco era, the spheres with the mirror mosaic remain popular. Discover high-quality disco balls in all sizes and shapes in our LTT online store.
The magic of the disco ball
One thing is certain: No disco without a mirror ball! The rotating light distributors can still be found in a wide variety of party locations. But why? There are several good reasons:
• Disco balls are an inexpensive way to conjure up beautiful lighting effects in the room. Even if they are only illuminated by a simple spotlight, the small mirror plates immediately create a good mood.
• The mirror balls create the feeling of movement in space and encourage dancing. By playing with light and darkness, the reflections break up the feeling of space, so that you can give yourself completely to the music.
• Your effects are variable by colored spotlights, lasers or spots. If you also use fog machines or hazers, the light beams dancing through the room become visible.
• Once mounted on the ceiling, the disco ball can be used immediately. The low maintenance is another advantage.
• Positioning above the heads of the crowd has a low potential for injury.
What is a disco ball made of?
The principle of the disco ball is very simple: reflective mosaic tiles are attached to the surface of a ball made of sturdy plastic. By means of an internal or external motor, the disco ball slowly rotates around its own axis. The small mirror tiles catch the light of the surrounding spots and scatter it in the room. This immediately creates a dancing atmosphere! The disco ball is attached to the ceiling. We deliver the necessary accessories like a stable suspension with every mirror ball. From a diameter of 30 cm, a drop safety device is also necessary, which is hooked onto a safety eyelet. The safety mechanisms of our disco balls are all tested and certified. You can also find the appropriate lighting technology such as spotlights, moving lights and other light effect devices in the LTT store.
Disco ball: what size is the right one?
We carry mirror balls in a wide range of sizes, so you can equip any space with the right disco ball, from a small party location to a large dance hall. For the party cellar, the smaller specimens up to 30 cm as well as our high-quality motorized half balls with mirror facets are suitable. Our large spheres are used in high rooms, halls and event halls. Here you are spoiled for choice up to a considerable diameter of 100 cm! With the size of the mirror facets, the effect also changes: Fewer but larger mirrors refract and transport the light differently than many small mirror facets.
Color mirror balls
You want to play with colored reflections? Then you can either use the matching light elements for the disco ball or go straight for a mirror ball with colored mirrors. In addition to the silver classics, the black and golden disco balls are also popular: the black copies look particularly classy and bring elegance to the dance floor, while golden disco balls get you in the mood for the pompous party night. Colored disco balls are also available in various diameters, some motorized and with safe suspensions and safety eyelets, as well as hemispheres for flat rooms. In one thing you can be sure: a disco ball belongs to every setting for a hot party night.
