The black Deluxe Varipole Support System from Impact is a kit that provides you with a complete studio system for shooting everything from portraits to product shots. The kit includes two black Varipoles as well as two Triple Background Hooks with Superclamps and one each of gray, black and red Chain Sets and Weights. The multi-colored chain sets will help you distinguish each of your backdrops and eliminate any mistakes when you want to change the color of the background.

The system will accommodate three user-supplied backdrops. The beauty of this system is that you'll be able to exchange the backdrops without having to dismantle the entire system to re-hang a backdrop. This saves time and makes your shooting session more cost-effective and time-efficient. It also allows you to give your client three different "looks" to the shot.

Set up is easy since the Chain Drives provide a quick way to raise and lower your backgrounds. The Varipoles grip the floor and ceiling securely. The Varidrives are placed within both ends of your background and expand to fit tightly. This entire system gives you an entire studio set up in one complete package. All the components for a home or studio background system are included. All you need supply are the backgrounds.

Impact Triple Background Hooks with Super Clamps (Pair, Black)

This set of Triple Background Hooks with Two Super Clamps from Impact combines a pair of background triple hooks with two ratchet-handle super clamps to create a versatile background solution for photo and video studios. The durable metal triple hooks allow you to suspend up to three cored seamless backgrounds simultaneously. And, since each hook segment is offset to prevent the backgrounds from overlapping, adding Impact's Varidrive or other chain drive system allows you to change backgrounds without interrupting your workflow. Time once spent changing backgrounds becomes time spent creating images. Impact's heavy-duty cast alloy Super Clamps are included so you can attach the triple hooks to Impact's Varipole system or other support system uprights, allowing chain drives or crossbars to support your backgrounds.

Impact Deluxe Varipole Support System - Black (Pair)

The adjustable Deluxe Varipole Support System (Pair) from Impact offers two Varipoles to create a functional studio backdrop and grip system. The Varipole easily and quickly mounts between floor and ceiling providing stable support for backdrops, reflectors, lights and grip accessories. With a strong tension mechanism and locking system, the Varipole is secured by its own force of pressure between solid walls or 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 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.

Sturdy support system for lights, backgrounds and grip accessories
Adjustable between 6'11" (2.1 m) and 12'1" (3.7 m).
Pressure mounted
Solid rubber cushions give no-slip grip and minimize marks and damage to walls, floors and ceilings.
Extension poles of 59" (1.5 m) and 78" (2 m) are available separately to increase the length of the Varipole.

Impact Varidrive with Gray Chain

Part of the Varidrive system for easy raising and lowering of seamless paper, the Varidrive with Gray 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 Impact ME-122, ME-123 or the triple hook VPD-H3W. With the exception of ME-122 which fits in a Super Clamp, the other hook sets are bolted onto the wall.

You can load three rolls for example, onto the VPD-H3W. Each roll requires another Varidrive kit. You can purchase color-coded units to clearly identify which roll you're raising and lowering. The Varidrive can handle seamless rolls measuring up to 9' wide and weighing up to 22 lb. To strengthen large coreless rolls and prevent bowing, Cross Poles (VPC-5) are available from Impact.

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
Multiple rolls can be mounted on an optional background support system using multiple Varidrive sets

    plastic chains break every use

    By Richard

    Date: 2022-07-06

    Don't buy this unless you get the metal chains, I have tension set very light so the paper doesn't roll down on its own and the chains still break, very frustrating when you have clients and models waiting.

    Fantastic product...

    Finally my small Studio is looking much better and less cluttered with background stands. No need to change rolls on Stands anymore. My workflow as improved a lot because of that product. Many Thanks...

    Perfect for a tall ceiling!

    After debating for weeks I finally bought this system for my new studio space. No holes in the walls and I could put the paper right up close to the top of the 12 foot ceiling. I ended up purchasing 2-inch metal conduit for the poles, it is stronger and should not warp over time. You do end up having to transfer paper rolls to the pipe if you don't purchase the kit aluminum cross bar but that is not a problem for me. This is strong and I don't have any trouble with the plastic chains.

    I really love these poles. I use them to hold 3 rolls of seamless paper backdrops. I was able to have a functioning studio setup in my basement in under an hour. I definitely recommend them.

    I had an unusual situation with a drop ceiling and needed to remove some tile so I can hang backdrops. These poles were the perfect solution! They are sturdy, strong, and have been incredibly reliable.

    My ceiling height is 6 foot 9". Is there a way I can make this system work?
    Asked by: Belinda
    The minimum working height of the Impact Deluxe Varipole Support System (Black) is 6'11" (2.1 m). If your ceiling's height is 6'9", it would not be compatible for use with this Varipole system. For your usage needs, I would instead recommend purchasing the Manfrotto Short Deluxe Autopole 2 (2-Pack, 59-106.3"), B&H # MA432272K, along with the Impact Triple Background Hooks with Super Clamps (Pair, Black), B&H # IMVPDH3CSC, and three (3) Impact Varidrive with Black Chain, B&H # IMVPDDSBK, for your usage needs.

    question

    What is the maximum weight capacity? Can it hold three 140 paper rolls which are 40 lbs each?
    Asked by: Irene A.
    The weight capacity of each pole is 55 lbs, when the weight is evenly distributed. That being said, this system is not strong enough to hold 3 rolls at 40 lbs each.
