Questions? Ask our experts:

The Foba DAPOI 11.8' (3.5m) Steel Tube is a rigid steel tube used with various background papers, providing a 50mm outer diameter for use with background papers.  The DAPOI helps keep a background roll nice and rigid, preventing crinkling and sagging and the like which can affect how a background works or appears in an image.  Backgrounds are expensive and have to be replaced when problems arise, but this steel tube will help eliminate much of that frustration.  All of this is especially critical with the longer backgrounds that would use this DAPOI tubing.

        Comments about Foba DAPOI 11.8' (3.5m) Steel Tube for Background Paper Rolls:

        I use it with a Foba set-up for 140" rolls of background paper.[...]They contacted Foba and let me know the ETA, every time I called, and even when I didn't call.
