Impact BGSS-VKDS overview

  • 1Description

The Impact Deluxe Varipole Support System with Metal Chain Kit from B&H is a convenient way to support and rapidly swap out 3 seamless paper backgrounds up to 9' in length. One of the system's best features the ability to quickly break it down to its component parts to relocate it elsewhere. The kit includes 2 silver-finished Varipoles and a pair of Background Hooks with Super Clamps to attach them to the Varipoles. Three Varidrives with black metal chains are provided to raise and lower the backgrounds.

The Varipoles easily and quickly mount between floor and ceiling providing stable support for backdrops, reflectors, lights and grip accessories. With its strong tension mechanism and locking system, the Varipole is secured by its own force of pressure between solid walls, floors and ceilings. Adjustable between 6'11" (2.1 m) and 12'1" (3.7 m), the Deluxe Varipole is capable of turning most rooms into a photo studio without damage to walls or ceilings.

The included Triple Background Hooks with Two Super Clamps allow you to hang up to three rolls of seamless paper. The two Super Clamps attach to the uprights of the included Varipoles and two Triple Hooks in turn attach to the Super Clamps.

The 3 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 Deluxe Varipole Support System - Silver (Pair)

Adjustable between 6'11" (2.1 m) and 12'1" (3.7 m), the Deluxe Varipole is capable of turning most rooms into a photo studio without damage to walls or ceilings. The Varipole is available in black powder or brushed aluminum silver finishes.

    This Varipole set comes with two Varipoles of the same color at a budget-friendly price and will allow you more capability and load bearing strength. Purchase a cross-bar to hang a complex lighting set-up for portraiture or even stage lighting.

  • 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.

    Holds background paper with cores
    Chain drive can be placed on left or right side of paper
    Allows rapid deployment of background paper while working in a studio; eliminates having to clip or tape paper to a wall or ceiling

Impact BGSS-VKDS reviews

Deluxe Varipole Support System with Metal Chain Kit is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up I haven't had a chance to use the seamless I installed on this yet but it was pretty easy to set up and is nice and sturdy. My only complaint is that the clamp/bracket set that attaches to the poles to hold the seamless paper didn't come with instructions as to how to attach them to the poles and it wasn't (in my opinion) obvious. I finally found an image online somewhere of what it looks like put together and was able to figure it out. This system is going to make me much more likely to use my seamless paper instead of having to drag it out of storage and hang on my backdrop stand. It also frees my backdrop stand up for hanging other items in front of the seamless.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Reliable Enough Out of the Box - Not Without a Mod I bought this kit and a back up varidrive because, well, as is known in photography, backups are a must. Sure enough, the varidrive broke on first use. I swapped it out with the backup so I could then exchange the broken one and the backup broke too, same day. It's only a matter of time before the other two break. It's because of a flaw in design. The way the thing spins to pull paper up and down is with a piece of plastic around 1/16 thick. This sits in a channel (so to speak) and turns the whole thing. Well, this little 1/16 piece of plastic just isn't rugged enough for heavy paper rolls. I retrofitted it instead. I drove a drill and then a screw to attach the two pieces together. It's much more sturdy now. I can see why they might opt to use that small piece of plastic over having customers line up holes and then screw something in. But, it shouldn't have been at the expense of reliability. If you're okay with doing this retrofit, it might last a long time. If not, you might want to see if there is another design out there.
