Storm Launches the Storm Ltd App

Storm Launches the Storm Ltd App

Today, Storm Ltd are very excited to announce the launch of the Storm Ltd App. An app that features a comprehensive rental catalogue with detailed information about each product including; Specifications, Accessories and direct access to Manuals, Datasheets and DMX Charts. The Storm app also includes key utilities used by many freelancers whilst working on productions. Including; DIP Switch Calculator, IP Ratings, Electrical Calculator, 3 Phase Information, Audio Delay Calculator along with many more utilities.

The Storm App has been designed to give users quick and easy access to product information and easy access to on-site utilities to help technicians. The Storm app reduces time spent finding documents and having multiple apps installed. All whilst enabling greater productivity across departments.

Storm Ltd wanted to provide an app that was accessible to all users within the entertainment industry. It was built with both established designers, technicians and crew. As well as those just starting out in the industry in mind througout the development process.

Storm Ltd’s Rental Manager, James says, “Our new app really does offer a new way to interact with us as a business. Giving users 24/7 access, anywhere in the world, regardless of whether the client has internet access or not is a brilliant feature. I know plenty of times I’ve needed to look at a manual or DMX chart, then had to spend the next 10 minutes looking for it either online or in the production drawes. This way, they’re already in your hand without any effort at all.”

He continues, “Adding the most popular utilities used by freelancers whilst they are working on site was another key feature we wanted to include. This makes our app a universal support tool for any designer or technician. Regardless of what project they are working on. We wanted to be able to offer a tool that can be a benefit to the whole industry. From established designers and technicians and to those just starting out. I really do think our app does just that.”

How To Get Our App

The Storm App is available worldwide on the App Store and Google Play Store from 16th June 2021.

Knight’s Kingdom Castle

Knight’s Kingdom Castle

Storm were delighted to be asked to design, supply & install a comprehensive new lighting system for the Knight’s Kingdom Castle at Legoland, Windsor. The team at Legoland wanted to ensure that the Castle was given the wow factor it deserve’s. As one of the most impressive structures within the park. It was essential that the fixtures selected for the installation would blend well with the architecture of the castle.

It was also key that the fixtures would withstand the elements and require minimal maintenance throughout the year. Storm provided a system that was capable of being truly dynamic. A system that could be used for any occasion throughout the year from Easter, Halloween to Christmas.

Storm made sure that the newly installed Knights Kingdom Castle lighting was ready for Legoland‘s Halloween special event, Brick or Treat in October. Brick or Treat was the first time guests were able to explore the Knights Kingdom with its brand new look. The control system allows for the lighting to be fully automated. Running sequences at set times or other trigger events. Another benefit of the control system is the system can also be updated remotely giving full flexibility to the team at Legoland.

The upgraded lighting system gives a whole new dynamic to the Knights Kingdom Castle. It offers the opportunity to do more exciting events throughout the year within the Castle grounds.

For more information about installation & sales please contact our team here to discuss your project.
