Impact Background Support System Overview

The Impact 12' Background Support System will support seamless paper up to 11' in width, as well as accommodate the 12' width of any brand of muslin background. Total weight distributed across the length of the crossbar should not exceed 20 lb.

The system consists of 2 heavy-duty professional support stands with 3 positive locking knobs and tubular legs, a sturdy 4 piece crossbar that snaps together with positive button locking devices, and a heavy-duty canvas carry bag.

It is suggested to secure the stands with gaffer tape, or weight bags when using any background setup where there are several people, or active children on the set.

Strong support for paper, or cloth backgrounds.
Crossbar may be used by combining some, or all the sections.

Is this a good back drop support for photo booths that require either paper, cloth, or any material back drop? Also how do you attach the seamless paper roll to it?
Asked by: Matthew G.
Hi--it depends how big the photo booth is--the bottom part of the stands do take quite a bit of space so you wouldn't want to use this in a cramped situation. Otherwise, if you have lots of room then it could work well. I have never used this support for a paper roll but I don't see why it wouldn't work. The horizontal cross bar at the top lifts off of the stands so you would just slide that crossbar through the paper roll.

What is the standard, maximum, and minimum height recommended for this stand?
Asked by: Anonymous
I've used this system on several occasions and it has always been stable, even when extended to the full height. It's a real lifesaver if you need to take the studio with you.
