Impact Varidrive Overview

The Impact Wall Mounting Kit with Metal Chain for Roll Paper is a convenient way to support and rapidly swap out three seamless paper backgrounds up to 9' in length. The kit includes a pair of Triple Background Hooks and 3 Varidrives with metal chains to raise and lower the backgrounds.

The included Triple Background Hooks are simply anchored 9' feet apart with screws. It is recommended that you anchor to a stud for each hook section. The three included Varidrives with Metal Chains each have two expandable core units and a flattened metal chain. One side of each of the drives has a large toothed gear to which the chain affixes to allow Venetian blind-like raising and lowering of the background paper roll. The other side of the drive provided tension control.

Impact Varidrive with Silver Metal Chain

Part of the Varidrive system for easy raising and lowering of seamless paper, the Varidrive with Silver Metal Chain from Impact has adjustable inserts that tightly grip each side of the various sized seamless paper rolls. The Varidrive is then inserted into hooks like the IMME122, IMME123 or the three hook IMVPDH3W. With the exception of IMME122 which fits in a Super Clamp, the other hook sets are bolted onto the wall.

You can load three rolls for example, onto the IMVPDH3W. Each roll requires a Varidrive kit. The Varidrive can handle seamless rolls measuring up to 12' wide and weighing up to 42 lb. To strengthen large coreless rolls and prevent bowing, Cross Poles (IMVPC5) are available.

Impact Varidrive Reviews

works well but

There is no place to break the chain. Therefore I found it impossible to put all three chains on the same end. It must be two on one end and one on the other. That will not work in my case so it became only two usable rolls for me.

For the price it is great.

I installed it with three 10x12 backdrops hanging on it. Mounting it to the wall was easy and I had no problem finding some pvc pipe that I could use for rollers. The chains are a little wonky and you will need to provide weights to hang from the bottoms of the backdrops.

Makes changing backgrounds easy.

This has been a great add to our temp studio, so we can quickly change backgrounds. We only had for a month or so and work great. I heard after awhile the cardboard tubes start to bow if you don't have metal tubes inside. We however haven't add any problems with that yet.

Good solution

Very good kit for the price. I suggest always buying metal chains. These are not quite as nice as more expensive versions; however, work very well.

Quality and Strong.

Ok but the chain part seems a bit crude.

The wall mount kit is awesome. Makes putting up and taken down backdrops quick. My only issue is I am short. So once I bring the backdrop down, I have an issue locking it from rolling. I went from 20 min to setting up a new color went to 5 min. For maternity shoots I like to give the mom be as many breaks as I can so 10 min. Water break for mom and me a water break for 5 min to talk to them more and learn a bit more of their wants. Great buy for anyone shooting studio.

These are awesome! Great for a 1-person crew

I used to setup backdrop stands over and over, and that was a pain doing it by myself. This has totally solved that issue and now I can up and shooting super quickly

question

I have this system I use for 2- 9 ft paper rolls and it worked fine for awhile but now when I move the chains it isnt catching the rolls and unwinding as it should. I have tried taking it off and reinstalling and tightening and everything. any ideas on what could be the problem?
Asked by: Amy
There is a tension control on the drive without the chain to control how loose or how tight the drive will move. If this does not correct the issue, I would recommend speaking with the manufacturer by calling 212-594-2120.

question

I have this product, but find that paper rolls want to just keep unrolling. Is there a way to increase tension on the chains to keep this from happening?
Asked by: Anonymous
The white section of the Impact Varidrive Drive expands to keep the paper from unrolling. To expand the Impact Varidrive Drive, you should be able to turn the black knob on the end of the device while the white section is inside the seamless paper's core to expand it until it is snug to prevent the paper from unrolling while in usage.

Can I swap different paper roles out whenever I need to? Like if I wanted to swap a red background for the grey one that's up, would I be able to easily?

It would be just a matter of removing the drives from the cardboard core of one paper roll in exchange for another paper roll.

What are some tips for keeping the paper from rolling onto itself when you roll it all the way up? The tension is great and everything works fine, just curious if I missed something or maybe doing something wrong. Do you add clips to the bottom of the paper to keep it tight/weighted when rolled all the way up?
Asked by: David
You can use clips or a counter weight. https://bhpho.to/2kD2k4e

ABout how high do you mount your bracket off of your wall? I will have the 9' wide rolls. Do you hang them 10-12' high?
Asked by: David
I also use 9' wide seamless rolls and have set the top of the brackets closer to 10' That height allows for plenty of heads pace when shooting portraits
