Impact BGDS-K3M Overview

  • 1Description

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.

  • 3 x 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 BGDS-K3M Reviews

Wall Mounting Kit with Metal Chain for Roll Paper is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Light duty product compared to the original Manfrotto design I purchased this set to replace an aging (3o+ years) Manfrotto. I have two 107" rolls of paper and one 107" vinyl roll mounted on Autopoles in my studio. After installing all three set, I unrolled/rolled the paper sets to see how the metal chains worked. Seemed OK. On the vinyl roll, the drive failed immediately. The keyed drive gear sheared and separated from the shaft so it now free spins. The plastic components appear to be very light weight and not as solid of a build as compared to the Manfrotto. I fully expect that the IMPACT components on the paper will probably shear soon also. I guess it's a lesson learned and back to the considerably more expensive Manfrotto product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the extra expense For a bit extra, this kit comes with weighted metal chains, which is way better than the same kit with the colored plastic chains. The latter just aren't up to more than very occasional use with heavier rolls. This kit is somewhere in the mid range, quality-wise. You can spend a lot more for top grade pro kit, but I imagine this is good enough for most as long as it's not being used every day. I'm using this with 9' long Savage 2.125 core wound 36' seamless, and the whole system does feel pretty solid, as long as you make sure you attach the metal brackets to a joist or something equally supportive. In fairness, I've not tried this with 150' rolls or the wider 12' x 105' rolls, either of which are around four times the weight of what I use. I might want something a bit more solid for those. You will have to use some Schedule 40 PVC 2 pipe as a core if you want to use fabric backgrounds with this system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy w/product I thought installing brackets would be challenge & it was. Mounted them myself, 109 apart, 10' off floor onto metal stud wall. #10 2 1/2 self taping screws. Do want to mention, install end unit inserts & chain before hanging. I didn't install chain until unit was on wall! Bad

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work very well! These are great and work just as expected. I mounted them to a beam in my garage and am holding up 9 ft rolls. The only small thing is the screws that come provided are a little weak, my drill bit stripped two of them. So I just used some spax self tapping screws and everything worked perfectly. I'd recommend this item for a nice upgrade to a small photo studio or garage studio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good so far Everthing is working great so far. I have had it installed for a week. I mounted it to the ceiling and used a carpenter to install is. He said the screws it came with were not the right kind for a cieling mount.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money Ordered the metal chain one for a few extra bucks and glad I did. The construction is great! Feels durable and after using it for a photo shoot I love it. It worked great with out a problem. Highly Recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect product for our studio This was the perfect solution for what we were looking for in our small studio!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should have bought right away! I started out with heavy duty stands, however it is hard if you are alone to change out backgrounds, especially in front of clients. I installed this system, I have a muslin hanging on the back one, two rolls of paper on the front ones. They go up and down with ease. I will say the 12 yard (107") goes up and down easier than the 24 yard roll, that the chain seemed to jump off the sprockets. I am very pleased.
