The G-1 Wash moving head is the ideal companion for the G-1 Beam, and is designed for any type of outdoor event and smaller venues in need of small moving wash lights with high output, uniform colors from a distance and color calibration to match other SGM fixtures. The G-1 Wash offers high contrast levels and extreme brightness in a small physical footprint at a low power consumption. The G-1 Wash can be ordered with or without batteries, installed with a remote base, or without any base at all.

LED Technology
The G-1 Wash is a small and reliable LED luminaire with a powerful 40W color LED engine. Unlike other fixtures in its range, the G-1 Wash can operate during the rain, delivering a high output over long distances with almost no safety distance to surrounding objects (0.3 m minimum distance).
It comes in a configuration with 19 high-power LEDs; four red, four green, four blue and seven white LEDs. The LEDs expected lifetime is 50,000 hours.

Battery and wired operation
Being a 100% wireless moving head, the G-1 Wash offers a vast variety of options for your setup. However, the G-1 Wash can also be wired (with or without batteries). When used as a battery-driven fixture, the G-1 Wash offers an impressive 12 - 14 hours operation in typical use.

Special movement features
The G-1 Wash includes a fast endless pan movement feature, which truly expands the possibilities when programming the fixture. Furthermore, with the G-1 Wash, SGM has introduced a patent pending position pre-set programming. Thanks to this feature, it is possible to program up to nine internal pan / tilt presets that can be combined with up to eight internal standalone programs.

IP rating
The durable IP65-rating of the G-1 Wash luminaire ensures that the fixture is kept free of externally induced particles and liquids on internal optics and light sources, such as smoke fluid, dust, dirt, airborne pollution, and humidity. Thereby, the need to clean optics or gobos is eliminated and no internal corrosion will occur. It is ideal for outdoor applications, while being practically maintenance-free makes it a sustainable and long-lasting choice for indoor events and installations as well.

The internal built-in dehumidifier protects this fixture from moisture, pollution and any other factors that can generate corrosion. The patented SGM dehumidification not only removes humidity but also prevents oxidation and condensation, while a gore-tex membrane equalizes internal pressure to prevent leaks.

The G-1 Wash delivers no less than 5078 luxes at 3 meters after optics, with a beam angle of 8.5º, and an efficacy of 38 lumen per watt. It gives the necessary brightness to create tight mid-air wash RGBW effects, while keeping a good f-stop for cameras and a 0.3m minimum safety distance to objects.

Thermal management
To achieve optimum performance of the LEDs at all times, this bright and accurate luminaire is optimized to manage heat impact through SGM's unique thermal management technology. The technology consists of a uniquely designed body and heat sink, which ensures optimal cooling of the LED chips. Additionally, the special aluminum alloy and surface treatment ensures maximum heat dispersion.
Like all SGM LED products, the G-1 Wash consists of SGM's superior thermal management technology and tested under extreme hot and cold conditions, which ensures that the LEDs always operate within safe parameters. Learn more about SGM thermal management

Mounting options
The G-1 Wash comes in two varieties: with or without the base unit. With the base, usability is diverse since batteries can be inserted, and thus positioning is independent from any power source proximity. Without the base, the G-1 Wash can be mounted onto the ceiling, in a rig or in a wall mount. In this case, the base can be placed remotely as power supply, or the head can be powered through an external power supply.


Included SGM technologies

This thermal management techonology provides Advaced Temperature Control monitored via sensors and software, keeping optimal LED junction temperatures, and ensuring maximum reliability for long-term use. SGM's predictive color mixing algorithm compesates the decay levels of color-based LEDs for superior color rendering. Finally, the ThermalDriveTM system includes cutting-edge heat removal via passive thermal tecniques and active forced-air cooling (depending on the product), specifically designed to maintain LED efficiency while extending fixture's lifetime.

SGM uses Full Range Calibration in all LED fixtures over CIE space and black body curve, measured via spectrometer and SGM Illumination Lab software. The consistency of each product and its lifetime expectancy is monitored throught inbuilt sensors to compensate color shifting and to allow color temperature re-calibration. To provide the best user experience, SGM's Color Match procedure ensures accurate wavelength reproduction within the product range via colored LEDs, dichroic filters, or CMY mixing (depending on the product); all of them specified to match the SGM color palette.

Stage Lighting


A professional stage lighting show demands fixtures you can trust. We won’t let you down. Seriously. SGM develops the best in class stage luminaires. We own the technology to build the flexible and efficient stage lights needed by the industry, where high quality, reliability, and innovation are some of the most important features. We push the limits within the world of stage lighting to create solutions that artists, lighting designers and audiences are really looking for.


Explore the different SGM luminaires for the entertainment industry 

Our extensive range of entertainment lighting include products such as moving heads, washes, strobes, blinders, flood lights, and effect lighting. This multi-purpose wide range of SGM fixtures is designed to tailor the lighting setup up to your needs. SGM Light is represented in many countries worldwide, and our products are used globally at all types of stage events and venues, including concerts, theatre productions, films, exhibitions, theme parks, and art installations.


Our unique testing and development process 

All SGM stage lights undergo rigorous testing and development, ensuring top-of-the-line LED fixtures that provide superior performance. We implement high quality standards for light output, color consistency, thermal management, and weatherproof resistance, to guarantee an extreme durability, excellent performance, and almost no maintenance.

A great example of this is the SGM G-7 Spot LED Moving Head, with IP-66 rating and active dehumidifiers. It is extremely durable in all sorts of conditions, where electronics and optics are protected by SGM’s exclusive DryTek system and a robust design. Our advanced technology ensures the interior of the fixture is preserved from external elements like water, dust, dirt, mud, sand, airborne pollution, extreme temperatures, and humidity, all of them very common at events or music festivals. Even though the SGM G-7 Spot LED Moving Head is perfect for touring and other outdoor events, these unique features also make it suitable for indoor installations and events, where long lifespan and low maintenance are must-haves.


Ultimate stage light testing

To be able to guarantee the durability and the best performance possible, all SGM stage lights are pushed to the limits in different ways. We lock up the fixtures in a salt chamber, we sandblast the lenses, we apply high-pressure washers over them, and we test them in very high and low temperatures. We even encase the fixtures in a block of ice before smashing it with a sledgehammer. It is literally a torture, but we are really focused on building fixtures you can trust.


Professional support 24/7

At SGM 24/7 technical support and professionalism is key when it comes to all our partners. We know the importance of a fast and efficient support, that is why we made this a top priority.
