The 13-foot Air-Cushioned Light Stand
The TS13AC is the air-cushioned version of our 13-foot stand, providing the same heavy duty use, with an air-cushioned release. The air cushion provides added support for heavier accessories, and offers a slower release when adjusting the stand height with accessories in place.
The TS13AC is a 13-foot maximum height, 4-section light stand, with a 44-inch maximum footprint. This stand is suitable to hold all AlienBees™ lights, including heavy accessories such as softboxes and octaboxes. This stand weighs a total of 7 pounds, collapsing to 42.25 inches for travel.
The stand is crafted with anodized aluminum tubing for maximum support, with oversized easy-grip knobs for adjustment. The wide base diameter offers complete stability with double-bar brace reinforcers for strength. Flash Units are mounted with the standard 5/8-inch brass mount, with 1/4-20 studs tightly anchored for a solid, secure holding
The Backlight Stand
The LS1100 Light Stand is the perfect stand for back/hair lights, and is ideal for lighting a backdrop as well. You can hide a flash unit on the backlight stand directly behind your subject to light your backdrop, or cast a rim light on your subject. The 3-section light stand has a 40-inch maximum height, with a 19-inch maximum footprint, collapsing to 16.75 inches for travel.
The stand weighs a total of 2 pounds, capable of holding up to 6 pounds, and is therefore only suitable for units with lightweight accessories such as grids, gels, the background reflector, and umbrellas.
