The Digital Juice 30 lb Sandbag - Empty is an essential part of any set or stage. Uses include securing light stands and booms, dolly stop on track shot and a "bean bag" for cameras or long lenses. This bag features double zippers, durable, waterproof polyester construction and a saddlebag design.
Sandbags are made with 100% polyester double matte fabric, fiber content conforming to AATCC 20:2008 /20A:2008 standards. The fabric is waterproof and tested for flammability conforming to standard 16 CFR 1610.
The bags are completely sewn using nylon thread and seam slippage is tested to ASTM D1683:2007 standards.
User Fillable Pockets
There is a zip opening on each side of the sandbag. Each of these concealed openings has double zippers to protect the contents from spilling over. These zippers have been tested for zipper strength to ASTM D2061:2007.
The flexible material used in the DJ Sandbag ensures it can conform to and secure most equipment used on a set. Use it to keep lightstands, cables, reflectors & umbrellas in place.
Safety should be the number one priority on any set. Proper use of the DJ Sandbag can protect your investment in people, time and equipment.
The DJ Sandbag's sturdy construction and use of double-zippered pouches ensures that once filled, the bags will stay filled and won't create a mess. It's the sandbag you can depend on.
With the double zipper design, you can fill the DJ Sandbag once and you're done. Whichever filler you choose, whether it's sand, rice, steel shot or pea gravel, it's going to stay in the DJ Sandbag until you empty it.
