DJ Equipment for Event Planning
1. DJ Dance Floor
A DJ dance floor (also known as illuminated dance floor, LED dance floor or disco dance floor floor) is made up of fiber sheets or panels (tiles) which light up with different colours. The floor can display different lighting patterns which can be changed through a controller or according to dancers' movement, provided tiles have pressure sensors.
The dance floor size ranges from 12' X 12' to 28' X 28' or according to customer's requirements, type of dancing and room size. The number of panels used in a dance floor varies according to the size of the dance floor or the size of panels themselves. For e.g. a 9'X9' dance floor may require only 9 panels, whereas a 30'X30' may require 100 panels or more.
Generally, installation of a dance floor is included in the rental price but sometimes there can be additional fees for installation if it has to be done on an irregular or uneven surface.
