Delta 1 Muslin Mover Three-Wall 36' System

B&H # DEMMS38 Mfr # 44220
You Pay: $219.95

The Delta Muslin Mover System comes in several different sizes. It is a ceiling mounted system. Ever visit someone in the hospital? Have you seen those ceiling curtains that get drawn every time they do something private to a patient? That's the system.
The Muslin Mover attaches to regular, or drop ceilings, or to walls, with optional L Brackets. Backgrounds are attached to smooth traveling carriers that are dual-wheeled, and made of nylon. It compresses 10 ft backgrounds to as little as 18 inches, depending on the thickness of the material you decide to use.
It does not come with muslin, or any other background. You provide that. What it does come with: straight and 90 degree track sections, one carrier, and one clip for every foot of track ordered.
The Muslin Mover comes in Single, Two, Three Wall Systems, complete with curved and straight track sections. They are also available in a complete Oval System.

This is a 3-wall system, with 36 ft of track.
Hang one or more backgrounds on the same track, depending on the size of the studio.
Allow rapid changing of cloth backgrounds, without climbing ladders, or rolling up previous backgrounds.
Single, and curved sections may be ordered separately, to totally customize your setup.
Additional packs of carriers, clips, splicers and end caps may also be ordered.

      This product was easy to install and use. The rollers get hung up on the transitions every once in a while but are easy to get free. I shopped for a system to do the same thing for a while and for a way to make my own and found it much more expensive when you ordered all parts individually.

      B&H had the best price and it comes as a kit so you have everything you need.

      Installation notes: It is a lot of up and down the ladder, you will drill the holes in the metal to match where to screw into the ceiling. We had to cut the track to fit and found that you need to file the edge after cutting so that the curtain will move easily over that transition. Best to have two people to hang system but it can be done by one person.

      There were no directions, so we just used our best judgement and it came out okay. We had to add some extra support to the ceiling where the turns were in order to have something solid to screw it to. Adding extra clips to the muslin made a lot easier to move around. When the clips were spaced too far apart, it would get "hung up" quite a bit. Once we added them, it was would slid nice and smooth. The gliders are just plastic, so I'm hoping that they hold up.

        This curtain rail system, from Delta 1, was everything I was looking for in getting curtains into my studio. This installation went easily, in a suspended ceiling environment, and I am very pleased with the results.

          No directions included, but none needed. Definately a two person installation. We installed the 38" system in a couple of hours. Makes changing backdrops a non issue. Simply pull one away, pull the next one in place. The rollers slide easy. We had enough to hang 3 10' backdrops and have spares for one more. Highly recomend this system.

              This track is a great space-saving addition to our small video studio, helps it look much more professional, and allows us to operate more efficiently.

              Before purchasing, I read the reviews, which were very helpful, and agree with most of them. Although there were no directions, it was pretty obvious how to put it up. I found it not too difficult for one person to install, although having help would have been nicer.

              Be sure to order additional carriers and clips if you have more than 1 or 2 muslins.

                    Installation was easy. I ordered the extra hooks so that I could put several backdrops on the mover and it does exactly what I want it to do. I am going to order another set next week to place at the other end of the studio to increase my backdrop variety.

                              Only draw back is you have to drill holes in racks yourself, My husband did this very easily, and there are not enough movers and clips for the unit, i need 5 more packs of each at least and they are [$] a set. I wish there was some kinda package deal 100 movers and clips for 80.00.

                                  I am converting my garage into a photo studio. Ceiling height is almost 10 feet. I use this muslin mover in combination with the Manfrotto Expan System. Expan mounted to the wall and muslin mover mounted in front of it on the ceiling. Muslin mover track is very easy to install in spite of the complete lack of mounting instructions. Rollers work OK, but they sometimes don't go over the joints very smoothly. Overall, this works as expected. The only drawback is the price. [$] for just 7 pieces of track and a few rollers. Outragious when you think that it's just a few chunks of aluminum extrusion... probably cost them less than $5.00 to produce. But it's the only game in town as they say.

                                  Easy to install, and even easier to use. The Muslin mover is a system that every studio should own. I used about 15 clips per drop so that there were no wrinkles, so be sure to order extra clip when ordering.

                                    This was a big upgrade to our small studio. Makes changing out backgrounds a snap. Very pleased!

                                      I've never had more usable space in my studio before this track system and my sessions are flowing better with less waiting for background changes. It would have been nice to have the ceiling screws come with the system.

                                        This allows us to hand more backgrounds and wrap them to the side of our main backgrounds that hang from a Bogen system.

                                        It was very easy to install, just took a few hours and it was up with backdrops hanging ready to go to work. Price was reasonable and i've already begun using it...

                                        It is a simple system and it works as expected. I mounted mine to a sheetrock ceiling using expansion anchors. It was a bit of a pain to do by myself. I recommend a helper to hold the rail while you position and drill. For the material involved, the cost should be less. Unfortunately, I could find nothing similar for a lower cost.

                                          Love it - keeps the muslins neat and close to the wall - we installed it in a drop ceiling. It was pretty simple to do. Sending some instructions with the kit would have been nice but we figured it out.
