Borderlights are used to create general washes of colored light on the stage, and to light backdrops, scrims, and cycs from the top and/or bottom. They are also used along the bottom of a backdrop to create sunset effects. Fixtures are constructed as a row of lamps and reflectors in a single housing wired on 3 or 4 circuits. Stock sizes are usually 6 ft. to 8 ft. in length.
