Triple Riser Combo Stand (Chrome Steel)

MU220SC0000

This Triple Riser Combo Stand is a heavy stand made of an aluminum (black) or steel (black or chrome) tube, 2”/1.4” (50/35 mm) diameter, with 1.2” (30 cm) square section legs. This stand was originally designed for rental companies and suitable for supporting headlights large in size at over 13’ (4 m) high, reachable with three extensions.

The joints of the Triple Riser Combo Stand are independently adjustable, ensuring flexibility in opening the base. The level leg allows you to adapt to uneven support surfaces. The stand is equipped with a universal head with .6” (6 mm) male and 1.1” (28 mm) female spigots.

The Triple Riser Combo Stand crosses and sleeves are made of die-cast aluminum. No element is produced in thermoplastic material. The joints between legs and crosses are made with self-locking screws and nuts, instead of rivets, to facilitate maintenance. The connecting rods of the lower cross are doubled to ensure maximum stability.

The clamping joints are equipped with a device that guarantees the tube locking with minimal rotation of the knob. The closure of the stand is regulated by a safety system consisting of a rubber spacer, which prevents accidental injury of fingers during the rods’ descent.

It is possible to install the wheels for handling, and the pneumatic system (air cushion) to control the descent of the rods under load. The stand can be customized with company motif and colors, with the insertion of anodized aluminum spacers in the level head and legs.

40″ Sliding Leg C-Stand (Chrome Steel)

MU320SC0000

The 40″ Sliding Leg C-Stand (with 10’ 6” or 320cm maximum extension) is designed to support scrim, flag fabric, and similar accessories used to filter and diffuse luminaires’ light in the studio or on the movie set, or to support small and medium size fresnel lights.

The characteristic design, with the legs offset from the column, allows the base to be housed inside the cross of the other stands of the set, in close proximity to the latter.

The sliding leg is adjustable in height, and ensures support on staggered floors, such as curbs, stair steps, and even the surface of a table. A minimum rotation of the knob is sufficient to lock the leg.

40″ Sliding Leg C-Stand is constructed entirely of steel. The legs are welded to spacers fixed to the column, instead of joined to aluminum joints, and, when closed, they align.

Mini Compact Stand (Black Aluminum)

MU010AB0000

Our Mini Compact Stand is one of the most reliable compact stands for location and professional studio services, thanks to the wide support base of the three .8” (20 mm) diameter legs. The wide support makes it suitable for supporting diffuser umbrellas and backlights, LED luminaires for shooting video, flash photography, microphones, surveillance cameras, and LED levels.

The Mini Compact Stand is the ideal article for video kits. The lightweight and overall dimensions of this stand, made of electro-welded aluminum tube in the MU010AB and MU010A versions, guarantee its handling and transportability for on-site services as well as stability and safety.

There is a steel version, MU010SB, which ensures a higher payload (up to 15.4lbs or 7 kg) than the aluminum model, and is an excellent response to the needs of video shooting in the studio or on location, with the weight and overall dimensions of a lightweight compact stand.

Mini compact stand sleeves and crossbars are made of die-cast aluminum. None of the elements are made of thermoplastic material, except for the knobs.

The clamping joints are equipped with a device that guarantees the locking of the tube with minimum rotation of the knob.

One of the most robust compact stands is our Master Stand, intended for both location and professional studio services.

The moderate weight of this compact stand, in the electro-welded aluminum tube version, guarantees handling and transportability with stability and safety.

Master Stand sleeves and crossbars are made of die-cast aluminum. No element is produced in thermoplastic material, except for the knobs.

The clamping joints are equipped with a device that guarantees the locking of the tube with a minimum rotation of the knob. The legs of the base are independently adjustable, ensuring an extraordinary flexibility in opening them.
