The design of a metal gobo is laser cut out of stainless steel allowing light to shine through and project a white pattern on the surface. A color filter can be added to the fixture if color is desired.
Metal gobos require “bridging” which are very small lines that connect the internal structure of letters and designs. If bridging is not added, enclosed areas, such as the inside of the letter “O”, would fall out.
Apollo metal gobos are made from 8 mil stainless steel with a high level of nickel and chromium. This type of steel produces a very durable gobo with fine detail image and a long life.
Competitor’s gobos are made from 5 mil stainless steel with a high level of carbon. The carbon begins to oxidize (rust) and breakdown faster than a gobo made from steel with nickel and chromium.
Check it out! A magnet requires carbon steel to stick. A magnet will not stick to an Apollo gobo. However, since competitor’s use carbon steel to make their gobos, it'll stick.
Metal gobos from our collection typically ships within 24 hours, depending upon availability. However, we regularly ship sooner than indicated.

In order to ensure the highest quality, some patterns cannot be produced in a particular size or substrate.
All metal patterns can be ordered as SuperResolution® glass.
Many of our metal patterns are also available as a PrintScenic® gobo. This is dependent on the pattern’s level of detail and gobo size needed. Contact our Customer Care team to find out if this pattern is available as a PrintScenic® gobo. PrintScenic® gobos are designed for use in approved LED fixtures only.
