LIGHTWEIGHT KIT STANDS

In the next series of posts, I’m going to cover our kit stands. These are the lightest weight stands within Kupo’s product line. They are made from aircraft grade aluminum and can support loads up to nearly 20 lbs. They range in sizes from just a few inches to over 13 feet. Due to their small size and weight, they are easy to transport and perfect for that lightweight lighting kit you carry on location.

Types of Light Stands

 

Obviously not all light stands are the same. This four part series will cover every aspect of light stands so after reading these posts, you will be a certified light stand expert.

 

KS140511

Kupo Baby Kit Stand (KS140511)

Kit Stands – These are the lightweight aluminum stands. They generally have a load capacity up to about 22 lbs (10 kg). They are great for light loads and because of their minimal physical weight, easy to transport.

 

KS101112

Kupo High Baby Stand (KS101112)

Steel Kit Stands – These are the heavy-duty versions of the aluminum kit stands. Steel increases the load capacity significantly, in this case up to 55.1 lbs (25 kg).

 

KS300112

Kupo High Roller Stand (KS300112)

Roller Stands – These stands come with casters so you can take your support mobile. They have everything from lightweight roller stands to their heavy-duty big brothers. These are excellent for studio work, especially if you are going to rig a lot of weight or a precarious item such as a boom, making repositioning a snap.

 

KS600112

High Overhead Roller Stand (KS600112)

Overhead Stands – Overhead stands are similar to roller stands as they do come with casters, however they also feature a “Lollipop“, or 4 1/2 ” Grip Head affixed to the top of the stand. Due to the massive sizes of overhead frames, (up to 30′ square), these stands typically extend to incredible heights of 20′ or so.

 

KS401212

Kupo 3-Section Wind-Up Stand (KS401212)

Wind-Up Stands – These stands feature a mechanical lifting assist with a hand-crank and an auto-locking safety system that enables a single operator to lift heavy loads with precision and confidence. Because of their increased weight, these stands are perfectly situated to any studio environment.

Cine Stands – Cine stands are generally similar to Combo Stands, but feature square legs.

 

KS200112

Master Combo HD (KS200112)
