Metal Honeycomb Grids vs. Fabric Grids?

Chimera offers two styles of grids, rigid metal honeycomb and Lighttools® Fabric Egg Crate grids.

Fabric grids collapse down to a very compact size, folding up to fit in a small fabric pouch. To attach to the lightbank, simply unfold and attach to the front velcro of the lightbank where the front screen sits. Fabric grids are offered in 20, 30, 40, 50 60, 20×60, and 30×50 degree beam angles.

Metal honeycomb grids are a rigid design with a solid aluminum frame and metal honeycomb cells. Compared to fabric grids, they are thinner in depth and offer a sharper edge of cutoff to the light than fabric grids. They also attach via the front velcro of the lightbank, and are available in30, 60, and 90 degree beam angles.

Fabric grids are available for nearly every lightbank Chimera produces with a removable front screen, from XXS to Large, and all three sizes of strips.

Metal honeycomb grids are available only for XS, Small, and Medium lightbanks, due to size constraints of production and shipping.

To protect the grid, metal honeycombs include a durable wooden transport case for shipping, which is available across most carriers (UPS, FedEx, DHL) on all levels of trains time.
