Chimera 5050 Overview

Chimera engineers have produced a modern version of Dean Collins' popular Lightform panels using 5/8" aluminum alloy tubing. These frames, which are compact and rigid enough to use outdoors, allow you to instantly create your choice of diffusion, nets and/ or bounce fill in seconds, without the use of tools.

A specially designed pin-grip system on the frames allows you to set and lock the frames in place with a single standard 2" grip head with no slipping.
The heavy-duty internal bungy cord keeps the frame segments together during storage and travel, and aids in super-fast setups.

I'm used to these scrims having groomets and elastic corners to hold them on the frame (the rag place). Not on these???? !! ???
Asked by: Randy
The Chimera Frame for Frame/Panel Reflectors - 48x48 listed above is only the frame; it does not include a fabric screen or panel with its purchase. However, the Chimera fabric reflectors/diffusers designed for use with this frame would only have an elastic corner on the ends of the fabric to connect to the frame; it will not have grommet holes for attachment purposes.
