Features

The brand-new Boreas S4 comes packed with many great professional features at a price that makes it accessible to everyone! Having a powerful, fully adjustable machine like the S4 allows you to create spectacular snow effects at any time of year. This machine can create both blizzard-like conditions and beautiful, gently falling flurries. A relatively compact package, the S4 is well-suited for use in plays, movie sets, winter attractions, and many other types of applications.


TWO-STAGE BLOWER MOTORS


The S4 features a low (800W) and a high (1,350W) fan setting, allowing for greater flexibility for your power and output needs. Being able to reduce the wattage of the machine is incredibly helpful in applications that have limited power supply, such as when using generators. When power isn't an issue, the machine can be set to its maximum blower speed to throw flakes longer distances over large stages or venues.


INTEGRATED NOISE-REDUCTION


When using snow machines in film or theater, it is important to keep noise levels low. Not only are the internal components optimized for quiet operation, soundproofing has been built directly into the machine chassis to ensure that the machine operates as quietly as possible.


DMX ADJUSTABLE OUTPUT


Use your DMX console to control the pump of the machine! This allows you to adjust flake size on the fly to the ideal settings for your show or production, as well as integrate the machine with any existing light shows and effects.


LARGE FLUID CONTAINER


The 5 Liter / 1.32 Gallon tanks ensures you have ample room to add another gallon of Froggy’s Flake snow fluid to the reservoir.  1.32 Gallons is also enough to last the standard user 50 minutes at full blizzard output, and 200 minutes at the lowest, flurry-sized output. 


OPTIMIZED FOR FINE PARTICLES


For huge blizzard effects, Froggy's designed our Boreas Max Snow Cannon. That machine features fans that blow over 40 mph and output gallons of fluid to create amazing white-out blizzard effects. Well, we also know that sometimes you want a gentle-falling, peaceful snow and not a full-on blizzard. Though the S4 can be used to create a snowstorm, it has also been optimized particularly for creating these beautiful, fine-particle wintertime effects.


IP RATED POWER CABLE, SWITCH AND BREAKER


The power components of the control panel are all water resistant.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of Fluid should I use for the S4 Snow Machine?

We offer a snow fluid for every need!  All of our snow fluids can be used in ANY snow machine by ANY manufacturer.  

To determine what Formula is right for you you have to look at a few variables.

  • Are you using them indoors or outdoors?
  • Do you want them to evaporate on contact or hang around for a bit?
  • What Distance do you want them to Travel?

Below you will find a chart explaining eacch fluid we offer. 

A good rule of thumb is, if you are outside and want it to last longer you pick a longer lasting fluid such as our "Long Lasting Snow Fluid"  If you are inside and don't want the foam to build up on the floor Use the Ultra Dry Formula. 

All of our formulas are Non-Toxic and Non-Staining and safe for Kids, Pets and Plants!

Rate the answer?
Are Froggy's Fog Snow Fluids Safe for Kids, Plants and Animals?

Yes!  All of our formulas are water-based and safe for Kids, Plants and Animals to come in contact with!

Rate the answer?
Is the S4 Noisy like other snow machines?

Inherently all Effects machines will create some noise.

However, we have designed the S4 to operate at a quieter level than competing snow machines.

The S4 has two speeds for different effects and will be louder when the fan is operated at high than at Low.

The Loudest it will register is 64dB from 30 feet away, which is no louder than an air conditioner or conversational speech.  To compare most other machines usually come in at around 75dB which is equivalent to a hair dryer or toilet flushing. 

This makes the S4 the ideal Snow machine for theater, film, TV, and Amusement parks.

Rate the answer?
Can I hang the S4 Snow Machine from something?

Absolutely!

The S4 comes with a Metal Mounting Bracket that can be positioned up the +/- 40 degrees.

We recommend hang or mounting the S4 higher if possible, for better coverage and a more realistic effect!

Always use proper clamps and rigging to hang machines.  The S4 has safety points to secure the machine with safety cables.

Rate the answer?
How Long will a Tank of Fluid Last on the S4?

The Consumption rate depends on the output you are running the machine at.

The Measured times when testing with a 1.3 gallon luid tank were:

Fluid consumption (100%): 300ml/min
Fluid consumption (1%): 25ml/min

This means roughly 15 minutes at 100% output, or blizzard conditions,  and 180 minutes at 1% output, or a soft flurry.
