Avenger Announces the Banshee | A fearsome heavy-duty cine lighting support

April 15, 2024 14:00

Avenger, the world’s leading manufacturer of Cinema, Broadcast, Entertainment and Content Creation production grip equipment announces the launch of Banshee.

Avenger’s Banshee is a fearsome heavy-duty cine lighting support designed and developed in collaboration with some of the industry’s most respected grip and lighting professionals. Designed and built in Italy to the highest quality standards, to provide a compact folding, easily transportable wind-up stand that achieves a maximum height of 3.4m / 11.1ft and boasts an impressive maximum payload of 120kg / 265lbs.

We know maximising the space on a grip truck can sometimes be a ghoulish task however the Banshees compact folded footprint of 63.5cm x 46cm / 25in x 18.1in along with its nestable design for optimised storage, make it one of the most compact heavy-duty wind-up stands available.

The highly durable black anodised and powder coat finish of the column and base, paired with the iconic Avenger blue anodised legs and offset profile design not only give the Banshee its devilishly good looks but are ideal for helping it blend into the background and helps to reduce reflections on set.

Maneuvering the Banshee around set is both safe and easy thanks to its multi-direction lockable braked wheels and puncture-proof foam-filled tyres with chunky treads for smooth undulating surfaces and innovative dual ergonomic transportation handles for use in both folded and set-up mode.

Like some of Avenger’s other industry leading lighting wind-up stands the Banshee benefits from a dual-handled crank and chain-driven column with a safety lock which means the mounted fixture can be raised and lowered in rapid time. In addition, the simple one movement setup of the legs and base is fast, convenient and ready to use in seconds.

The 28mm / 1-1/8in junior receiver combined with the 120kg / 265lb max payload means the Banshee is well equipped to support the industry's heaviest lights. It’s adjustable levelling leg for uneven surfaces and wind brace tie-down mounting points on the column make it ideal for both indoor and outdoor use.

Other key specifications include the wide footprint of 1.6m / 5.3ft which provides optimum stability as well as plenty of clearance moving around set, a lowest extension of 1.3m / 4.4ft to make loading the fixture safe and convenient and the maximum extension of 3.4m / 11.1ft providing plenty of reach.

The Banshee benefits from a long list of industry leading features designed to make life easier on set as well as look frighteningly cool whilst doing it!
