Material

Anodized aluminum construction

Adjustable Length

The crossbar adjusts from 58 to 156". The telescoping sections let you adjust the length of your crossbar to any paper or fabric background within those lengths. You can adjust to the precise length to fit irregular background sizes, so your background doesn't have side-to-side play.

Three Telescoping Sections

The three non-locking telescoping sections won't jam or stick so you can easily adjust the length of the crossbar to different sized widths.

Sturdy Tubing

A 9' roll of seamless paper is a heavy weight for the crossbar, and if the crossbar isn't strong enough, the crossbar, and the roll, can sag and cause your paper background to crinkle. The heavy-duty tubing prevents the paper roll's core from sagging, so your paper background will stay flat and pristine.

Locking T-Screws

The included locking T-screws on both ends of the crossbar ensure that your background is securely anchored to your light stands.

Impact BG-CB13B Reviews

stronger in the middle

By Daniel
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-24

I have several rods that are two pieces that connect in the middle. They all sag in the middle under the weight of a large cloth backdrop. This rod is one piece so it's stronger in the middle with very little sag. It is about 56 inches when compacted compared to 42 inches for my other rods when taken apart and compacted.

Next level pole!

Much higher quality pole than the ones you get from Amazon, and goes out to 12 feet! Use this with two Varipoles for sure. Life changing.

Great Backdrop Support

By Jordana
Rated 5 out of 5

I first purchased one of these bars about a year ago after using a bunch of cheap equipment for a really long time and finding it lacking. I need a long support, most of my backdrops are at least 10-feet in width, and usually 10-feet or more in length. These bars are a lifesaver, both in the studio and on the road. It is so much easier using them and they actually do a really great job supporting the backdrop without warping in the middle. There is a small dip, but nothing extreme, and I have been known to leave these fully extended with a backdrop for weeks on end. I liked the first one so much that I purchased a second just recently. In my photos you can see a sample of the two bars holding backdrops. The way the ends are designed allow for many types of mounting. They also allow for sliding through smaller backdrop support holes. You can fit these things on hooks, bars, rope, and more, not just a typical stand. Truly a heavy duty piece of equipment.

I have two of these cross bars and they are a fantastic addition to the studio. I mount them on the Impact Wall Plate with 90-Degree Baby Pins and together they make a very flexible backdrops solution.
