Curtain up and stage clear!

The P18 Wash is a high-performance washlight with 1,000 watt white light LED module, framing module and Fresnel lens, which was specially designed for large show and theatre stages. Fast, precise and extremely quiet – only 29 dB(A) – this LED washlight provides one highlight after the other.

The P18 Wash is extremely bright, efficient and light (31 kg). Its color brilliance and beam quality are hard to beat, which is why it simply steals the show from classic washlights with discharge lamps of up to 2,000 W.

The effects plug-in of the P12 Wash is equipped with 8 brilliant full colours, 7 correction filters and an additional High CRI filter. In addition, the effects unit has been equipped with gobos for special wash applications. The colour wheel can be infinitely rotated, which makes it possible to create not only half colours but also great colour effects (e.g. rainbows).


The CMY/CTO color mixing unit of the P18 expands the color spectrum by an almost unlimited number of colors and also enables linear CTO correction.


The P18 Wash is available in two versions – with CRI >70 as P18 Wash HP (High Power) with 7000 K; 61,500 lm or as P18 Wash HC (High CRI) with CRI >90 (6000 K, 47,500 lm).

HP (High Power): CRI >70

HC (High CRI): CRI >90


The beam character of the P18 Wash can be individually varied with the interplay of zoom, focus and frost – from “sharply” defined to soft, flowing beams.

“Sharply” defined beam

Soft beam character


The P18 Wash offers a zoom range of 13 – 65° (1:5), which means that both very narrow and wide beams can be easily achieved.

Minimum zoom

Maximum zoom


Depending on requirements and stage usage, even more diffuse beams or blurred beam edges can be created using the two infinitely adjustable frost filters.

Cleaning and gobo changing are child’s play with the Varysan P18 Wash. All plug-ins can be removed without tools or manual cable disconnection.

The motorised high-speed iris is equipped with 18 fins and can be seamlessly adjusted. This enables an almost circular beam to be created even with a very tight iris.
