The Salamander Quad Pro is the latest flame unit under development from Le Maitre, and follows on from the successful Salamander, extending Le Maitre’s flame family offering.

The Salamander Quad Pro is a larger, more versatile system than the Salamander. A four canister system, it can be operated with each canister being fired independently and the option of multiple colours being loaded to provide a truly stunning visual display from a single machine. Firing the canisters sequentially can also be used to increase the duration of the effect, with up to 120 hits in total and each flame reaching around 4m in height. Alternatively, all four canisters can be fired at the same time to produce a much bigger single flame reaching up to a spectacular 7 to 8 metres – terrific for stadiums!

The new unit also retains a number of key features and benefits from the original Salamander design, including:

A unique firing system eliminates internal valves and accumulators, thus minimising the chance of the system becoming blocked or leaking.

Canister-based fluids, offer an ideal solution for anyone wanting to create a propane-style flame without the headaches. These eliminate the need for inconvenient external propane tanks, trailing pipes and multiple valves, enabling quick set-up and at a fraction of the cost.

A choice of colours – natural and red, as well as a choice of fuels – butane/propane (natural canisters) and where the use of propane isn’t permitted, ethanol/methanol (red canisters), provide a great alternative solution.

A number of safety features including a safety tilt sensor as well as ignitor monitoring are also incorporated.

The unit is operated through DMX, 5 channels (Ignitor plus 4 Fire Channels), and Ignitor Channel Address can be set independently from fire channels (eg, Fire: 2, 3, 4, 5; Ignitor: 12).

A key feature of the original Salamander is its small footprint at just 204x170x433mm, and despite housing 4 canisters the new Salamander Quad Pro is almost as compact at just 260 x330x425mm.

Le Maitre will be demonstrating their full line-up of smoke, haze and low fog machines along with a selection of pyro controllers and accessories as well as videos of their pyrotechnics. Products will include:

HazeMaster – Le Maitre’s brand new, most advanced and powerful hazer yet. With its massive output capacity, high power variable fan and low power consumption, it really is a class act. The combination of an industrial grade air-pump, a 2-stage heating process and a microprocessor controller, produce an output so powerful that the HazeMaster can convert up to 750cc of fluid per hour!

MVS Hazer – a powerful and versatile hazer, with two variable-speed, high power fans used to control the force and direction of the haze stream. There is also a unique oscillating mode for automated back and forth sweeping of the stream. The MVS is geared towards medium to large sized venues.

Neutron Hazer – the popular, entry level hazer, ideal for small to medium sized venues. Its success lies in its simplicity and straightforward and economical operation – just switch on and it quietly produces haze for almost 100 hours on just 2.5L of fluid!

G300 Smoke Machine – Le Maitre’s flagship water-based smoke machine is rugged, versatile and has a very high output. The G300 is a uniquely dual-mode machine, offering both smoke and haze. Designed to perform in the most demanding of applications, it is the machine of choice among touring, rental, theme-park and cruise ship customers.

GForce 1/2/3 Series Smoke Machines – Le Maitre’s range of high powered, continuous flow, water-based smoke machines, based on the core technologies of the G300, but engineered with new design and manufacturing enhancements, making them extremely economical.

Freezefog Pro Low Smoke Machine –The system of choice on stages, in studios, clubs and parks, this liquid CO2 chiller produces a dramatic, low-lying smoke effect when used in conjunction with a G300 or GForce smoke machine.

Mini Mist – A robust, hand-held aerosol smoke machine which uses a smoke fluid canister to create a thick fog effect. Ideal for TV and film, as well as the emergency services for breathing apparatus training exercises.
