Shopping for Studio Rail Systems and Accessories
If you're shooting in the studio or working on your next stage production, overhead studio rail systems clear the floor and reduce the need for light stands. Overhead lighting rail systems and background rail systems add convenience and functionality to your studio. Choosing rail system accessories helps implement this setup in your studio.
Types of Studio Rail Systems
Professional studios benefit from having a variety of backgrounds and adequate lighting. Having the right rail system can help clear up clutter and create the right space for your shoot.
Background Rail Systems
If you use background materials for professional shoots in your studio or stage productions, background rail systems are perfect for your new studio or your next addition. From a 16-foot, non-curved, single-wall system to a 58-foot, curved track, three-wall system, you can find the right configuration to fit your space.
Lighting Rail Systems
Overhead lighting rail systems are convenient and help create a clutter-free workspace. You can get modular kits that expand as you grow, or complete packages that include rails, brackets, carriages, and all of the hardware necessary to install your whole system.
You can add a straight track or mounting rails with curves for your modular system as needed. Complete kits often come with capacity for one to four lights, as well as a range of features from telescopic poles and scissor lifts to friction pantographs.
Cable Carriers and Cable Runners
Cable carriers contain and protect your cables as you move your lighting equipment around. These cable runners help keep your studio neat and tidy. They may also help when you're trying to clear your camera frame of hanging cables or cords.
Additional Accessories to Consider
Hardware and other mounting rail components can help you set up your rail system. Ceiling-mount brackets allow you to attach your rails to the ceiling safely and securely. Steel safety cables are useful if you want to ensure your expensive camera equipment won't fall from the rails. Boom arms extend your lighting reach, while carriages and trolleys help your equipment glide along the tracks.
